The unspeakable, with fearful snorts, gradually remixing with the inconceivable. I defy any one to match it elsewhere on this earth.

9: the guy who did it is a composer. I bet he can more or less take dictation from the radio, and he's familiar with the big hits of the orchestra rep. Not to deny the genius, but the guy lives in this space.

It's like when you make all those cock jokes, Ogged. We're amazed by what you come up with, but when you spend all your time thinking about men's naked genitals, you're able to make connections the rest of us don't.

re: 9

There are lots of great mash-ups around with really incongruous combinations of tracks. Using Dvoƙak is pretty inspired, though. Made me think of the way A Tribe Called Quest mashed together Prokofiev and The Blockheads all those years ago.

I take satisfaction in knowing, Labs, that you wrote 11 in an effort to distract from the high gay that is "lives in this space."

... And immediately
Rather than words comes the thought of high gayness:
The sun-comprehending ass,
And beyond it, the deodorized pair, that show
Nothing, and are nowhere, at the Mineshaft.

IYKWIM.

10: He probably can do those things, but there is software that can change the key of a recording to match another one. I think they have do be in the same mode, though--major, harmonic minor, or whatever.

Re: Prokofiev, I've always been too late to put together my medley/mash-up of Peter and the Wolf, the Smurfs' theme, and the na-na hook from J.Geils' "Centerfold". I outsource it to the Internet.

13: So using metaphorical language is gay, but constantly obsessing about male genitalia is the straightest thing ever.

I hate to get all hetero and turn the conversation away from ogling male genitals, but it looks like we've been had.

Remember those photos of Jessica Biel taking out the trash? Staged! They're from a PSA about recycling that's running during the Sundance Channel's all-day broadcast of the Live Earth concerts.

Thanks for posting this link!

Not that I mind the allegations of "genius," but Michael Vanderwheel is right that the software did most of the heavylifting. Musically it's a fairly obvious thing to do -- the hook of the Black Eyed Peas song is the same tune as the beginning of the Dvorak theme, and it's a pretty famous theme. But the Dvorak was in entirely the wrong key, at entirely the wrong tempo, and the beat was far from steady. So I pitch-shifted the hell out of it (brought it down a 5th), and stretched and pinched each beat to make it fit the Black Eyed Peas tempo. That took a while, and it still isn't perfect--and you can hear some artifacts from the shifting and stretching. After that, the actual collaging of the hacked up Dvorak over the original was pretty easy.
