Just over a week ago Kirby Ferguson released the final installment of his “Everything is a Remix” series. The 4 videos are each about 10 minutes long, and explore the concept of “intellectual property” from a number of angles. Part 1 talks about covering, reworking, sampling, and remixing in music. Part 2 deals with re-appropriation and genre in film. Part 3 discusses the technological evolution of the graphical interface in personal computers.
I’ll readily admit that the best two ideas here are use of Walsh‘s “Helicopter Does Not Exist” and footage from Bullitt, but the Bel Biv Devoe reference is pretty choice too. Haven’t been able to get this out of my head all week.
Mint Julep. Yes.
Fuck you, Mitt Romney.
I don’t know if the correct term is “blessed,” “graced,” or “honored,” but I felt all of the above when guest DJ Wyndham’s funky mix landed in my inbox this month. I can think of no more fitting of a mix in light of Don Cornelius’ recent passing. I know you all got soul, so be sure to enjoy these Super Low Prices.
