Ayo ayo. Greetings from Ari, your newest little TSURURADIO-er. I’m here to start bringing you some mini collections of loveable links (with incredible commentary!) to help you keep up to date on the happenin’ world of the interwebs. Hopefully some of them will compliment Tsuru’s discussions/reviews/mixtapes, etc, and open up some new doors to the fabby community that is TSURU…NATION… A bit about me real quick? I’m a wee college girlie in southern California, homebased in NYC suburbs, who has read tsururadio for years, listens to a lot of music, studies art history and media studies, and also happens to be really really really awesome. If you fall in love with me, feel free to check me out elsewhere in the www!
Well, let’s get on with the goodies!
I can’t say I am as in love with Hot Chips new album One Life Stand as I wish I was, but this video for I Feel Better is changing things. Male model band circa 1998 singing Hot Chip’s falcettos? This guy (basically) doing… weird shit…? Hot Chip cameo in the crowd? Too bizarre, and consequently, too good.

Unfortunate crossbreeding in Austin this week of SXSW hispters and St Patrick’s day enthusiasts… I guess it could have been worse (/more hilarious) if… well… no I guess I don’t know how.
Shamrocks are the new Ray Bans
twitter has a flickr, and I don’t really know what to think about it, much less blog, so I’m just going to leave you with that.
Discovering freelance whales in the first semester of my freshman year will probably eternally leave a soft spot in my heart for them. They pretty much define those four monthes, probably largely because they were on repeat… So Passion Pit decided to take a breather from reissuing Manners to spare Aislyn, the keyboardist, enough time to remix Generator 1st Floor. It’s playing right now in my room, and my heart is swimming in my head, (which I realize is not a idiom of the English language, so you’ll have to trust me when I tell you that it’s a good thing)

I want to warn everyone that this game WILL ruin you. For a week or so at least. With that said, I want to recommend Robot Unicorn Attack. There really aren’t many good things to say about it, but some how the combination of music, graphics, and beautiful creatures are seamlessly engineered to waste a lot of your time. You know you’re stuck when you start singing along to the song, which, by the way, is “Always” by Erasure. Contact me if you want to cover it, I’d be happy to help, or at least post it on my twitter. I also recommend you youtube that music video.

And, finally, horray America! Horray health care! Horray almost Canada!
Well that’s all for today, how’d I do?
