Moe Pope mashed with Big D and the Kids Table

Mashup virtuoso djBC sez, "Here's a new mashup album- and it's legal. I merged the concious raps of Boston MC Moe Pope with the soulful 'Fluent In Stroll' record from Big D and the Kids Table. The result is probably one of my strongest efforts- an organic sounding record that is convincingly live sounding, as if Moe walked into the recording sessions at Camp Street. With the guest talents of Edo G, Dana Colley (formerly of Morphine), Maestro 1-Ton (Agari Crew), The Doped-Up Dollies, Project Move, and Christopher Talken. Thank you. I am extremely proud of this effort and I hope to get it in some ear holes."

Holy smokes this is good music.

Taxi Driver goes to Disneyland

Byran Boyce takes Robert Di Niro to Disneyland in "Walt Disney's Taxi Driver":

According to Boyce this is a trailer for Walt Disney’s re-imagineering of Martin Scorsese’s classic film “Taxi Driver”. It follows Mickey Mouse-obsessed Travis Bickle as he looks for love in a rapidly transforming New York City.

Walking Dead title sequence as a 1980s sitcom

MovieWeb's alternate title sequence for The Walking Dead is set to the theme from Growing Pains and expertly edited/titled to give it the air of a 1980s sitcom, an effect that it achieves in spades. I would watch this sitcom: "The departure of Frank Darabont has seen The Walking Dead go in a whole new direction. This new intro for season 2.5 seems to shine a light on the character dynamics of this ragtag group of zombie survivors and the impending daddy issues that Laurie's pregnancy is sure to bring."

Toy Shining: Toy Story meets The Shining


Illustrator Kyle Lambert set out to create a storyboard for a mashup of Toy Story and The Shining, calling the result Toy Shining.

Earlier this year I began following Lee Unkrich, the director of Toy Story 3) on Twitter (@leeunkrich). As well as his journey to the Oscars with Toy Story 3, Lee often tweets about his passion for Stanley Kubrick and the movie The Shining which inspired him to pursue a career in filmmaking. Having seen both The Shining and Toy Story 3 for the first time recently myself, I thought it would be cool idea to mash the two movies together as a fun side project.

It started off with a few notes on a post-it describing how the two movies could be combined and quickly grew into a 25 panel storyboard. Once I had sketched each composition I set about painting the panels with my iPad using the Brushes app. The project took around 2 months to complete in my spare time from idea to the finished storyboard.

Coincidently, towards the end of the project I was invited to visit the Pixar Studio for the day by one of their artists Don Shank and thought it would be a great opportunity to deliver a printed version of the project to Lee in person.

EFF and Everything is a Remix want you to ask the Copyright Office for the right to remix


Hughillustration sez, "Under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, video artists who break the encryption on a DVD or sample online steaming videos could face legal threats - even if the video they create is considered fair use. We think that's nuts. Kirby Ferguson, creator of Everything is a Remix, is standing with the Electronic Frontier Foundation in fighting for the right to create remix videos. Please sign Kirby's letter below and stand up for the rights of video artists."

Dear Ms. Pallante,

From high school students creating videos for classroom assignments to activists and journalists sampling videos for political commentary, remix videos offer creative ways to educate, empower, entertain, and politicize people around the world.

But this creative expression is threatened by legal uncertainty. Three years go, the Copyright Office agreed to create an exemption to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act so that creators could break DVD encryption to sample video clips. But that exemption is about to expire, opening up the possibility of legal threats against video artists like us.

Please defend our right to remix videos and grant the exemptions proposed. Renew the exemption that lets video artists break encryption on DVDs in order to use video clips in primarily noncommercial videos. And please go one step further and extend those rights to cover Internet videos, like paid downloads and streaming videos not available on DVD. The Internet is fast becoming the major medium for video, and video often appears on Internet services long before -- or instead of -- a DVD release...

Rip. Mix. Make. (Thanks, Hughillustration!)

SOPA/PIPA mashup: how much Hollywood money did your lawmaker take? Name and shame with fellow voters


With PIPA off the legislative calendar and SOPA paused, this tool may seem a bit redundant, but it's a nice piece of advocacy work. Creator Jonathan Vanasco sez, "I tossed together a mashup over a few hours while sick on the couch. It uses the data from Propublica and SunlightLabs to create very-shareable profile pages for every Senator and Representative that were geared for 'viral': - language is designed to motivate people to read and share - leverages all the Facebook and Twitter tools to increase ranking - text and graphics are optimized for Facebook sharing, educating users about the issue and how much lobbyist money may be influencing things - automatic twitter suggestions for tweets with likely-to-share language ie: - challenge a senator to give back $x in media contributions - notes if a senator has received more media contributions than 50% of other senators - asks a senator how much money is needed for them to represent people, not lobbyists."

Hi. My name is Dianne Feinstein. (Thanks, Jonathan!)
