Girl Talk

Play the YouTube video, and then read this post.  In case you’ve been living under a rock for the past couple years and haven’t heard about this musical artist, allow me to introduce you two.  His name is Gregg Gillis, but he is better known by his stage name, Girl Talk.  His specialty is mashing up songs to create new music, and glorious music it is.  I can’t even begin to express the genius behind his stuff, so please, listen to it.  Check out his website here and be sure to listen to his two most recent (and best, in my opinion) albums Feed the Animals and Night Ripper.  The YouTube video is the first track from Feed the Animals – Play Your Part pt. 1.  Oh, and his concerts are pretty much the bees’ knees.  More of his songs and a video of him at work after the fold.

Night Ripper – Bounce That

Awesome fan video using rotoscoping (a la A Scanner Darkly)

Ridiculous video of him at work.  So much talent.

    Hey there

    Girl Talk is definitely amazing, right? I just came across him and actually did a profile of him that looks at the marketing side and the legal issues on my blog/podcast for Wired.com that you might find interesting. You can check it out here:

    I hope you don’t mind, but that is a great video of him at work, so I grabbed the embed from YouTube and added it to my post as well.

    Cheers
