8 1/2 Mile

September 14, 2008

My roommate turned me on to this video after I told him how much I loved 8 1/2, and I have to say, this is one ingenious piece of mashup art.  It’s a trailer that features the music from 8 Mile, starring Eminem and footage from Federico Fellini’s 8 1/2.  It really captures the similarities between the two films, however culturally different and anachronistic they may be relative to each other.  I’d have to say it’s really only worth watching if you’ve seen 8 1/2, but I’m sure that the mind-blowing juxtaposition can be appreciated by everyone.  See for yourself.


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.
