Culture jamming the news

Author: will | Filed under: humour, mashup, parody, video, YouTube

What happens when you mix footage of news anchors with the voice track of old B-movies? (with a bit of “stunt mouth” action thrown in to avoid lip syncing problems)?

Well you get this.

Bryan Boyce created this mash-up back in 1999, and it works.

Sort of.

Worryingly the “I’m an alien” line does not seem faked.

take care out there,

Mashy Christmas

Author: will | Filed under: 2008, bootlegs, creativity, mashup, music, parody, reuse, video, YouTube

Go Home Productions 2008 Christmas offering.
Combines Blondie’s “Tide Is High” with Paul McCartney’s “Pipes Of Peace” / “Wonderful Christmastime” and J-Lo’s “Jenny From The Block”

I give it 24 hours before its taken down, but enjoy it while you can.

Boom De Yada Boom De Ah Dah!

Author: will | Filed under: humour, parody, video, YouTube

As much as I love XKCD sometimes I just don’t get the joke
xkcd Loves the Discovery Channel

Then Darragh Doyle goes and explains everything with an embedded video.

But sometimes, things go together a little too well (and sing along)

take care,
Will

Only happy when I’m singing in the rain

Author: will | Filed under: copyright, humour, parody, video, YouTube

Take one classic film clip, one deeply disturbing song and enough cheese to ensure clogged arteries. The result is the video for Richard Cheese and a little video entitled “Gene Kelly vs Garbage vs Richard Cheese“.

Given the weather in Cork at the moment it sort of suits the mood.

Given that the result is a parody, is a two phase combination considered Fair Dealing under European Copyright?

take care,

A little early

Author: will | Filed under: parody

I’m ashamed to say that I’ve already bought a christmas decoration…

One of these.

And yes I’m putting up a Hallowe’en tree again this year.

And then I’ll have to see if any whingebags with an L plate wants to hire a qualified driver.

take care,
Will

The other financial gap

Author: will | Filed under: news, parody, video

Why does this spoof on the Onion remind me so much of David McWilliams “Generation Game“. I’m not as financially comfortable as I’d like to be (I’d like a Euromillions win this weekend if it can be arranged, thanks) but I don’t think that Mr McWilliams quite thought out all of his argument.

RTE seems to be hell-bent on making us nervous as opposed to shaking us from our complacency. How about going through possible fixes so the public can lobby for them (without the need to post nappies please).

Its a guy geek thing, you’ve given us the problem, now how about helping us find the solution?

Where Torchwood

Author: will | Filed under: humour, parody, television, YouTube

Torchwood? We’re beyond the government, outside the United Nations, second left over the flyover, straight on at Budgens, right at the lights then first left by the Qwik-Save.

The BBC show Dead Ringers did a parody of the BBC show Torchwood. Oddly, the spoof make sense of its source material. If nothing else it explains the plot holes…

No idea if this will stay live for long.
