RIP: A Remix Manifesto Pt. 1


I know this video grossly overshoots the 30 second youtube attention span that many have developed, but it posits an interesting question on the rights of intellectual property vs the right of every tax paying American to party shirtless to “mashups”. Generally I’m not a fan of stock-mashups where a pop-beat is loosely fitted to a hip-hop track, but Girl Talk is an exception. He’s a master at his craft with an engineering degree, and he approaches his art like a technician. Enjoy the documentary, and tell Blogman to get DJ hero so he can reach his full potential.
