New Holy Tango song

All the bloggy love that my free eBook version of Holy Tango has been getting has energized me to get back to work on the Holy Tango Basement Tapes, which takes the same basic concept and applies it to music: What if songwriters wrote songs whose titles were anagrams of their names? Here's the latest installment.

"Presbyterians" by Britney Spears (featuring Tate Evans of Dirty Lenin on vocals)

In other book-related matters, apparently enough people decided to buy analog versions of my book that Amazon is temporarily sold out; if you're looking for a copy, you might try BooksXYZ instead; they're selling it for a mere $8.96, and the profits go to benefit public schools.

(Two updates: I've remixed the song slightly; it sounded fine on my computer speakers, but when I listened with headphones later, the EQ and balance on the vocals were way off. Part of the problem turned out to be that iPod headphones are crap, but the mix did need improving, so that's been fixed. Also, a commenter at Old Hag -- thanks for the glowing write-up, Ms. Hag! -- points out that Holy Tango is available from Daedalus Books for cheap, at least until their supply runs out.)

You need to add the .mp3 extension to that link, I believe.

Whoops -- yes, quite. Thanks. This is the sort of thing that happens when one finishes mixing after 4:00 A.M. It's fixed now, for anyone who tried to download it and was thwarted.

"Analog versions of my book?" So newfangled! When will I be able to watch Holy Tango via on-demand cable TV?

This actually makes me want to go hang out with some Presbyterians. They seem all right.
