PBS has begun an interesting project. Their PBS Digital Studios partnered with Melody Sheep have begun to produce throw-back videos where popular hosts from PBS years gone-by are auto-tuned and re-mixed, in a very similar manner to the Carl Sagan remix ‘A Glorious Dawn’ from a few years ago. Now, I have to say I loved the Carl Sagan remix, and I think it’s incredibly awesome PBS is trying to replicate that feel with these videos.
I also think it is amazing that PBS is reinventing itself from the sleepy public channel (with shows like Sesame Street) to a hipper cooler channel that remixes Mister Rogers, Bob Ross and Julia Childs (that’s just to date). The videos they have released so far are fun, catchy and entertaining. PBS Digital Studios is definitely a channel/stream I’m going to follow on YouTube to see what else they have planned for the future.
Of the three videos out so far, the Mister Rogers Remix is my personal favorite. Here it is in it’s entirety below:
It’s been awhile since I’ve updated the site, so I think I’ll leave this right here…
Psy – Gangnam Style
Psy’s video for Gangnam Style is pretty much incredible. The last big Korean ‘KPOP” export that I can recall was the Wonder Girls back in 2008, with this So Hot. Luckily, ‘Gangnam Style’ is very different. Tell me what you think in the comments below!
UPDATE: Appears this ‘Gangnam Style’ has gone viral with many remixes, mashups, and redo’s popping up everywhere. Psy has even become somewhat of a celebrity here in the US. Send me links of all the videos you find that remix, mashup or re-do ‘Gangnam Style’ and I’ll post them here!
I didn’t even know that Charlie Chaplin could talk. I mean I assumed he could talk, but I’ve never seen anything other than his flapping his arms around wildly while Looney Tunes type music played in the background. Anyways, this video is pretty amazing.
A Message for All of Humanity
I’m sure it was put together by some Occupy Wall Street protestor, which is OK by me. I don’t agree with all of their points, but I agree with their right to protest and get out and get what they think they deserve. I wish the Occupy people were a bit more organized and didn’t make all liberal people look foolish (I’m one of those liberal people who feel foolish when I hear these people talk). Oh well.
Quick post. Didn’t get a chance to get something up earlier. Had a busy day, well not really more of a ‘movie day’. Just watched The Hangover 2 and The Change Up. I have to say both were pretty funny. The Hangover 2 seemed to mirror the plot of the first Hangover, but it was pretty funny. However, the movie Lesleh picked, The Change Up, was actually really funny. Plus you see Olivia Wilde and Leslie Mann’s boobies. Which made it better… Some fun stuff I found on web below. I’ll try to get caught back up tomorrow.
So in this post earlier this week, I said that The Glitch Mob was one of my top three live concerts in 2011. The Glitch Mob isn’t touring currently because they’re working on a new album. So, it’s unlikely I’ll get to see them in 2012, or hear much new stuff from them.
Luckily, however, The Glitch Mob doesn’t seem to sleep and they’ve produced massive amounts of music and remixes. Which in turn all those people out there that aren’t computer retards, like me, have gone and added bits and pieces to the re-remix the songs. A few songs listed below, not in any particular order, but if you press the play button on the music player (in the lower lefthand corner) all of the songs will play in sequence.
Also, one of the more amazing things I found when obsessing about The Glitch Mob last night is this video. The first three songs are Glitch Mob remixes. The very first song is TV On the Radio’s ‘Red Dress’ (which I have a link to above). Something about this song gets me hyped up.
The video is called ‘The Apple Tree’ and the first few minutes are the coolest, but over all a pretty amazing feat for anyone to put together. I watched the whole video on full screen and it’s incredible. Especially how the music syncs with all the seemingly random movie clips.
