Today In Girl Talk: A Date Which Will Live in the Opposite of Infamy

Like a shaggy George Washington crossing a Delaware of hipsters

Happy Gregg Gillis Day! Oh, you thought it was Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day? Get with the times, fossil. December 7 is now a holiday devoted to the one-man dynamo of exhaustive intertextuality that is Gregg Gillis, a.k.a. Girl Talk -- at least this year, at least in Pittsburgh, in the bosom of whose Polish Hill neighborhood Mr. Gillis has nestled his multi-tracking, frequently shirtless self. According to Gillis's Twitter feed (via Pitchfork), after an agonizing wait, the resolution sponsored yesterday by PGH City Councilman Bill Peduto was approved today. The system works!

Certain inalienable rights, yadda yadda yadda

In other Girl Talk news, the infographic-mongers over at Fast Company have chosen to celebrate the holiday by publishing a gnarly song-by-song visualization of all the tracks that constitute the raucous sonic tapestry of Gillis's latest release, All Day. Check it out here: if it's not as visceral and user-friendly as this interactive project, it's pretty classy-looking. And in the end, isn't that what Edward Tufte would want?
