Mixing '80s heavy metal hair band RATT with Motown artist Marvin Gaye just shouldn't work, but somehow it does. This mashup by YouTuber
Bill McClintock is called "I Heard it Round and Round the Grapevine" and sets Gaye's 1968 soul classic "I Heard It Through the Grapevine" with the hard-rocking track from RATT's 1984 single "Round and Round." It works, I'm telling you.

Cousin Larry and Balki are back thanks to Jimmy Kimmel Live. This comedic mashup imagines what it would like if Balki from Perfect Strangers brought home the Demogorgon from Stranger Things.

Over the weekend I took a silkscreening class (at a great DIY-kind of place in Oakland called Grease Diner) and discovered this brilliant design in the rag bin. If you haven't figured it out already, it's a mashup of the comic strip character Cathy and the logo of punk band Black Flag.
I posted this same image on Instagram and I was able to figure out the artist through the #Ackflag hashtag. Her name is Kathy K and she sells products with the design in her Etsy shop, Crimson + Clover. Read the rest
