Girl Talk

September 1, 2008

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.

Apologies for not updating regularly. From now on, I will endeavor to update as daily as possible (and once I get into a rhythm, the posts will pop up at around the same time). That being said, I would love to hear specific input from you readers about what content you like, what you think is mediocre and bad, etc. I would like this blog to be interactive rather than simply me posting things that I arbitrarily think are cool, so please, tell me what you’d like to see in the future, or even submit ideas to me about future posts. Many thanks.

Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog

Genius.

Genius. Click the picture to watch.

Joss Whedon, creator of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, released a 3 part series on the net called “Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog,” starring Neil Patrick Harris.  It was an instant hit, and if you haven’t heard about it yet, go watch it immediately.  Harris plays an aspiring supervillain who falls in love with a girl, but vies for her affection with the city’s superhero.  The rest is history–and brilliance.  Shortly after it was fully released, it became exclusive to iTunes (for $4), but it is now available for viewing on Hulu for free (with brief advertisements).  You can watch it here.  If you do one thing with your free time today, it should be watching this.
