Welcome to the new LOLTRENTZ Green! We’ve always been green thanks to the little SocialVibe badges on the right. The traffic through this blog helps raise money for the Environmental cause and I suggest that everyone else who isn’t with SocialVibe go sign up right now to support a cause.

Anyway, the blog that started in April 09 and used to specialize in parodic pictures has grown beyond its inceptional purpose. The blog will now be your aggregate for news around the ‘nets as well your one-stop shop for new music downloads and iPod music videos. I’ll still post new LOLTRENTZ and KATIEPRICEs every now and then, but the main focus will be towards providing you with new music, videos, news and whatever else comes up. Now, remember: if links die, they die. Too bad. It’s the circle of life and if they come back to life, they’re zombies and we don’t want zombies around here (lawl). Also, SUPPORT THE ARTIST. Any media you download from here is for the sole purpose of allowing the consumer to decide if they would like to purchase the media. Finally, this is a non-profit unofficial charitable blog. The blog is not/will not be used for monetary purposes to the author and the latent purpose is to generate funds for the Environmental cause on SocialVibe. With that said, have fun guys. I’ll do my best to update at least once or twice a week.

Follow me on Twitter. (Also, if you see any relation to this blog on MySpace or Facebook, it’s not me. I do not have an account on either of those sites. I will notify you if that status changes)

Dedicated To Miss Taylor Swift

Okay, I’m not one to beat a dead horse, but it can’t be denied that what Kanye did to Taylor Swift at the VMAs was heinous regardless if it was staged or if Kanye was under the influence of alcohol. So, before I bury the story into the annals of LOLTRENTZ and never speak of it again here’s my nod to Miss Swift to show my support for her and applaud her high spirit following the situation.

Taylor Swift “Sorry I’m Heartless (feat. Kanye West)

(I just had the idea to do this mashup earlier today so I rushed and finished it in about four or five hours)

And the VMA for WTF goes to…

Only because it’s imperative that every blogger must write about the VMAs, here’s my analysis…

First off. GO TAYLOR SWIFT.

Second, If you haven’t heard, a certain someone rudely stole the spotlight from Taylor Swift’s first VMA win. I’m not gonna dignify this certain narcicist simply based on the fact that what, hereafter referred to as “the party”, did was childish, damaging to the party’s culture, mean-spirited, and all-out unwarranted for a night that was dedicated to one of the greatest performers of all time–Michael Jackson. The party in question neads to learn that there’s a time and a place to “speak your mind” and it can be assumed that the party simply performed its action out of despiration from the fact that it would not win an award and had to scramble to do something to be in the news the next day. Now, yes, I am a fan of the party and I will still listen to the party’s music after this incident involving Taylor Swift, but what the party did tonight was in poor taste. The party has stated that it will apologize to Swift, but there shouldn’t have been need to apologize in the first place. I mean, Beyonce was nominated for 9 awards. Why couldn’t Taylor have 1? The party has been eaten by what my hero, Lady Gaga, calls “The Fame Monster” and I don’t feed Fame-whores or Fame monsters (This means you too, Speidi).

Anyway, with that said, the VMAs were nearly perfect tonight. There were so many water-cooler moments it’s hard to choose one…

1)Madonna’s Speech/Janet’s performance
2)Green Day’s Moshpit
3)Beyonce giving Taylor Swift her props
4)Lady Gaga’s murder mystery/Heaven & Hell outfits
5)Jay-Z and Alicia Keys’ homage to their hometown, New York
6)Russel Brand was actually on his best behavior…but still not funny
7)Michael Jackson “This is It” trailer
8)Pink’s circus performance
9)MUSE performing their new single “Uprising”
?)Lil Mama’s unecessary appearance.

According to Twitter, I’d say the biggest water cooler moment, other than Taylor Swift’s, will be Lil Mama. Her going on stage during Jay-Z’s performance was unnecessary as Wisin y Yandel being nominated for a VMA…which they were…tonight…as if they had a chance. Whatevs…The VMAs were beautiful and I loved them, but my standards were low considering last year’s. Good Job, MTV. You’ve renewed my faith in you. I especially loved Lady Gaga’s bloody murder performance. She’s my hero and always will be…at least until she steals the spotlight from someone who totally deserved it, but she wouldn’t do that. She’s no Joe Wilson…or Kanye West. Oops.

Haven’t You Heard? – DJ Lobsterdust

Well, I really don’t know what to say about DJ Lobsterdust other than he’s amazing at what he does. Seriously, as a fellow “masher of music” I can honestly say that he makes some of the best mash-ups I’ve ever heard and there are a lot of people out there doing them. Now, I don’t know much about DJ Lobsterdust other than he’s from New York, he’s a favorite of Pitchfork, and he can usually be found DJ-ing at Bootie parties–more info on that at his official site. He doesn’t need me to make an album for him because he’s got his own EPs ready for download and enough material to keep a party jumpin’ for, I’d say, a couple of days–tops. But we here at LOLTRENTZ like to make things easier for you. I’ve compiled a Best of…album containg the 15 tracks that really show off his skills. Visit his site and partake of his awesomeness. I’ve got respect for this guy.

01. DJ Unk “Walkin’ Out Yo Girlfriend (feat. Avril Lavigne & Toni Basil)”
02. Red Hot Chili Peppers “Shut Up Now(feat. The Ting Tings)”
03. Britney Spears “Britney The Pimp (feat. Don Julian & The Larks)”
04. Marvin Gaye “Baby Arrow (feat. Mary Wells, The Album Leaf & The Carpenters)”
05. Lord Tariq & Peter Gunz “Uptown Guns (feat. Bloc Party)”
06. The All American Rejects “DeCexyLong (feat. Le Tigre & Rod Stewart)”
07. Busta Rhymes “NEWYORKBATTLEMOVE (feat. Nina Hagen, Lo Fidelity Allstars & Kottonmouth Kings)”
08. Bubba Sparxxx “Booty Pressure (feat. Ying Yang Twins, Queen & David Bowie)”
09. Jacki-O “Restless Booty (feat. Ying Yang Twins & UNKLE)”

Haven’t You Heard? – Priscilla Renae


YouTube’s full of people singing (usually horribly) into their webcams, but every now and again we find a diamond amongst the dirt. No, we’re not talking about Marie Digby–she had her time to shine. We’re talking about the six-string strummer and singing starlet Priscilla Renea. According to her bio on her from her official site, she hails from sunny Vero Beach, Florida and is ready to drop her Capitol Records debut “Jukebox” in October. Now, I will admit, the only song I’ve heard by her is her single “Dollhouse” which is amazering (yes, I used amazering again) but she has a nice repatoire of covers and originals at her YouTube page (obviously…that’s caught her lablel’s attention). If I had to compare her to another artist, to make it easier for those who don’t feel like forming an opinon through their perusing of her material, I’d say she’s like a less depressing Tracy Chapman. I guess. Give her a listen. I think we may see more of her in the future and wouldn’t you like to be the one in your circle to be able to say “I knew about her back when she dropped her first album”–admit it, pop-hipster.

Oh, and she’s such fun on Twitter, too.

Neverland Will Never Die

Michael Jackson’s family and owners of his beloved Neverland ranch have agreed to turn his famous home into a Graceland-like amusement park, sources told The Post yesterday.

The King of Pop’s loved ones could open Neverland to the public as early as Christmas, under an ambitious timeline set by its owners, private equity firm Colony Capital, and brother Jermaine Jackson, the sources said.

The family and developers have even agreed to consider various names to call and trademark the sprawling 2,676-acre estate. Developers went to the US Patent and Trademark Office on Aug. 12 to lodge an application, protecting several names under consideration. (via NY Post)

DeGeneres to Replace Abdul?

All you “American Idol” fans who were hoping that a last-minute change of heart would bring Paula Abdul back to the show can now give up on that dream.

Fox has announced that Ellen DeGeneres will be the new fourth judge on the show. She’ll start work on “Idol” after a parade of temporary fill-ins (including Victoria Beckham, Mary J. Blige, Kristin Chenoweth, Joe Jonas, Neil Patrick Harris, Avril Lavigne, Katy Perry and Shania Twain) winds down during the audition rounds.

“I’m thrilled to be the new judge on American Idol,” DeGeneres said in a Fox press release. “I’ve watched since the beginning, and I’ve always been a huge fan. So getting this job is a dream come true, and think of all the money I’ll save from not having to text in my vote.”

(via MercuryNews.com)

Okay, WTF? Seriously. I mean, don’t get me wrong I love Ellen, but how is she qualified to judge a singing competition? Yes, she’s charismatic and funny, but that doesn’t qualify her to judge singing. American Idol is flailing like a fish in a tanning booth and I would not be surprised if it did not return next year. Simon doesn’t need AI–he’s got X-Factor. Randy doesn’t need AI–he’s got America’s Best Dance Crew. Kara, the Cousin Oliver of the show, doesn’t need AI–she’s a songwriter. If American Idol did get cancelled, it goes without saying that there will be backlash, so yeah, please, 19 Entertainment, fix it, but Ellen is not the proper cure. She’s merely a butterfly bandage. There are so many has-beens in the music industry that they could’ve chosen that, so what’s the problem? It’s apparent that Paula had that “complete package” that nobody else can bring to the Coca-Cola sponsored table. We miss you, hon.
