Garfield without Garfield's thought-bubbles

You've probably seen Garfield Minus Garfield, a collection of Jim Davis Garfield strips in which Garfield himself has been removed, transforming the strip into a sinister portrait of Jon Arbuckle's descent into irretrievable madness.

But there's a good case to be made for Garfield without Garfield's thought-bubbles as the true standard-bearer for disorienting and unexpectedly great Garfield remixes. With this view, Jon Arbuckle is cast as a man who carries on detailed conversations with a cat, which is arguably weirder than the idea that he's merely wildly hallucinating.

Sesame Street video mashed up with Beastie Boys's "Sure Shot"

This Sesame Street/Beastie Boys "Sure Shot" mashup does some very clever stuff with fast and slow framerates that makes the puppets appear to be perfect lipsynchers

HOWTO shift any song into a major key

If you liked the REM's Losing My Religion shifted to a major key post, check out Eliot Van Buskirk's Evolver post on recreating the effect using Celemony Melodyne, a package that sells for $99 and up.

“Losing My Religion” is in A minor. I want to make it A Major, the same way Major Keyed did.

Luckily, I didn’t have to go through and change every relevant note manually, although you can do that too. Melodyne has a scale editor, so I simply switched the whole song to A Major and exported it, which took a few clicks and fewer minutes.

Monkey Ikea Beast Jesus

Naturally, once a monkey in coat visited an Ikea in suburban Toronto, it was only a matter of time until the image was combined (to excellent effect) with Monkey Jesus by @Justin_Ling.

Grey Album remastered by golden-eared engineer

Sound engineer John Stewart has never fallen out of love with DJ Danger Mouse's genius 2004 Grey Album, a mashup of the Beatles' White Album and Jay-Z's Black Album (and neither have I). He's got a golden ear, and over the years, the little audio infelicities in his copy have been niggling at him, so he undertook a complete, crisp, and beautiful remaster of the album. You can download the tracked-out album from MediaFire, or listen on SoundCloud.

It’s got plenty of advantages too: Revisiting The Grey Album with an expert ear gave Stewart the ability to pinpoint its audio flaws, and his professional experience gave him the agency to do something about it. Stewart says he first got the idea to remaster The Grey Album on Wednesday, Nov. 21, but it didn’t really click until that Saturday. On Sunday he set out to improve the album’s audio, tinkering with various faders in ProTools until he achieved the desired effect: “I just kind of put the sonics on steroids,” he says. Stewart knocked out the entire project that day and uploaded The Grey Album (Remastered) to SoundCloud and MediaFire on Monday. In the few passing days since releasing the updated version of The Grey Album it’s been covered by sites such as The Source and FACT Magazine, and a swarm of fans have reached out to Stewart to thank him. “A lot of people have thought that it needed to be remastered,” he says. “So it worked out.”

Stewart says he’s seen people from around the world flock to him—he said his website received about 200 hits from Hungary on Tuesday alone—though personal fame wasn’t the goal.

Mozilla's Popcorn Maker: a drag-and-drop tool for mashup interactive video

Brett Gaylor from Mozilla sez,

Sunday at the Mozilla Festival in London, Mozilla launched the 1.0 version of their new Popcorn Maker tool, a free web app that makes video pop with interactivity, context and the magic of the web. Popcorn Maker makes it easy to enhance, remix and share web video.

Using Popcorn Maker’s simple drag and drop interface, you can add live content to any video — photos, maps, links, social media feeds and more. All right from your browser. The result is a new way to tell stories on the web, with videos that are rich with context, full of links, and unique each time you watch them.

“Until now, video on the web has been stuck inside a little black box,” says Mozilla’s Director of Popcorn, Brett Gaylor. “Popcorn Maker changes that, making video work like the rest of the web: hackable, linkable, remixable, and connected to the world around it.”

IMDB's top 250 movies mashed into a 2.5m clip

Infinite Gangnam Style: realtime, beat-matched remix that goes on forever

With "Infinite Gangnam Style," Paul Lamere provides an infinite, intelligent remix of Psy's viral classic.

Hip-hop sea-shanty

David Minnick is a genius. That is all.

A remix of the Snoop Dogg/Kid Cudi song "That Tree". The idea for this sort of remix was born when I became aware of the great similarities between the lyrical themes of rap and the lyrical themes of pirate music (Self-aggrandizement, the quest for money and treasure, romantic view of violence, sexism etc..) In spite of this "serious" description, this remix was really just a hilarious idea that I somehow managed to finish. Enjoy!

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.

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."
