Two Ends Of The Spectrum

•First, legendary Canuck comic Bill Hicks: Rykodisc, who released "Bill Hicks: The Essential Collection" in September, have teamed up with blog Street Boners And TV Carnage for a "Re-Animate Bill Hicks" contest. Sounds sacrilegious, yes, but the best fan-created video featuring Hicks' work receives prizes from the comedian's personal collection. And any excuse to go back and listen to Mr. Hicks is an opportunity upon which to seize. Enter here by December 30th.

•Second, in a phenomenal example of local government doing something good, the Pittsburgh, PA, City Council honored Girl Talk's Gregg Gillis by proclaiming him a true patron of the Steel City arts — and naming December 7th "Gregg Gillis Day." Gillis christened  Pitt's new Stage AE amphitheater with two sold-out shows last week. That's Mr. Girl Talk himself rocking the sweet sweater. Download his most recent masterpiece "All Day" here for free.
