Economists; More Mashups; Dewey Decimal Rug; Jewish Star Trek Themes; Japan's Longest Day
We've become mashup/remix enthusiasts laterly. At the birthday party of a friend of ours last night, The ♥G♥ was telling some of our friends about the AC/DC-Kanye song she likes, and I don't think any of them understood what she was talking about. Here's a list of some stuff from a guy named DJ Schmolli well worth checking out, here's Banned Music, and here's Mashuptown. Also, take a look at the Wikipedia page for Bastard Pop.

I'm looking forward to the DVD release of a movie that I don't think has ever been available in the U.S. (could be wrong) called Japan's Longest Day, about conflicts within Japan's military and political establishments in the days and hours leading up to their surrender at the end of WWII. The film is based on the book of the same name. Summary here. I'll make sure to record my impressions here when I see it.
