You As You As Man-Consciousness-System

Last night I finished and posted a new video for another track from LeVautourEnsemble's forthcoming second album, "Machinique Meltdown."

This one comes about as a response to a sampling-duel with Ross Boyd of The Tuna Fish Discrepency, prodded and mediated by Adhesiveslipper of Headhat Records. It's on, Ross. Can't wait to see what you make of this absurdity.

In my contribution to this excellent game, I mashed the wacky sample in question up in a steaming pot of  crazy-broth with some robots, kittens, bass, beats, and spirally chaos. Who doesn't like those things???

As per usual (or at least often) with LeVautourEnsemble content, I think a little disclaimer is in order here. Since I've had some issues in the past relating to online censorship of nude mannequins (no, I'm not kidding. When I initially dropped the current logo for this site, among similar images from the same concept/ photo-shoot of Miss Chloe Claustrophobia, I was flagged on several websites by the content-gestapo who apparently can't tell plaster from flesh...), I should probably point out that anything in this video that appears in any way naked is NOT human. Most often it's a robot... sometimes a kitten.

Got a crazy idea today. Let's get a new phenomenon started. We're calling it "snazzmobbing."

Basically, we're going to get groups of people together, over-dressed to the swanky hilts, and congregate suddenly in places where our snazziness will seem particularly out of place... like dive-bars to drink (presumably poorly-made) martinis.

Obviously, like any attempt like this, it's not going to be much fun without a bit of help. So, if this sounds like fun to you, pass it on. Share this, tell your friends, post a Snazzmobbing-related status on Facebook... and drop the #snazzmobbing hash-tag into your Twitter stream.

Test-run in the New Hampshire seacoast area sometime soon? Who wants in?
