The real menace in "Jurassic Park" wasn't a T-Rex or any other dinosaur. Turns out it was Pee-wee Herman! Enjoy Pixel Riot's meticulously rotoscoped mashup of "Pee-wee's Big Adventure" and "Jurassic Park," aka "Pee-wee's Jurassic Adventure." Absolute genius!
I wanted to see what would happen if I spliced Pee Wee into Jurassic Park. I think it works pretty well! I replaced almost 100% of the audio. I'll never rotoscope someone on a bike ever again...

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.
In case you forgot, here's what the two songs sound like separately (I nearly forget RATT's music video starred Milton Berle):

The music of Journey and Beyoncé shouldn't work well together but this mashup by oneboredjeu (aka Maddy) proves otherwise. By combining "Any Way You Want It" with "Drunk in Love," she's created a super-trippy mix called "Any Way You Love It."

Thank you, DJ Cummerbund. Thank you for perfectly combining Pearl Jam's "Jeremy" and Kenny Loggins' Footloose theme (and a little of Tina Turner's "Proud Mary" too) into "Jereloose." That was thoroughly enjoyable.
YouTube commenter Ramanan amusingly calls it "the jauntiest song about a school shooting since Pumped Up Kicks!"

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.
The new season of 'Stranger Things' came out, and it's very popular. It's a great combination of new and classic. The show is full of references from the 80s and now Netflix is taking that one step further with a new spin-off series that teams the kids from Hawkins, Indiana with two beloved characters from the past named Larry and Balki. #PerfectStrangerThings

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
