Cuppy Cake

I’m sick, which has lead me down dark alleys on the internet such as this:



Before you form any opinions about the video, I ask that you consider the same situation, but standing over you in your darkened bedroom as you sleep.

No, not M*A*S*H

Here are two more mashups that I’ve recently discovered that I wanted to share. First, a song that would have sent the sixteen-year-old version of myself into an utter tailspin:

Led Zeppelin vs Black Sabbath – Whole Lotta Sabbath


When I was young I had a very compressed sense of time – I remember having discussions with my Dad in which I was unable to differentiate between when dinosaurs roamed the earth, the age of pirates, and the era of cowboys.

I don’t see the recent trend for mashup creation helping that sort of confusion any.

Queen vs. Outkast – Hey We Will Rock You Ya


Boil 'em, Mash 'em, Stick 'em in a Stew

Just a quick post to share a couple of mash-up music videos that I discovered via Scott Johnson’s The Morning Stream.

First up, LL Cool J vs Dexy’s Midnight Runners in Knock Out Eileen:


– then a chaser of The Jackson 5 vs Nirvana with Smells Like Rockin’ Robin:


Update: Classy fellow, and man about town, BMJ2k of Mr Blog’s Tepid Ride, added another suggestion in the comments, and I feel like it should be added to this bit of mash-hash: AC/DC vs Ghostbusters – Thunder Busters.


Any other suggestions?

I’m feeling a little lost and alone, suffering the dramas only a young man can conjure. My roommate, a fellow sitting about twenty feet away, behind his own closed door, sends me a link.

It’s 2008, and the conversation has found itself in an awkward pause. My wife suddenly asks the pixie on the couch a question, to which she receives a negative response.

“What,” she asks again, “you’ve never seen it?”

It’s last Tuesday, and I’m walking the autumn streets with the seven year olds. Their faces are sullen; they’ve just finished extravagantly explaining the opera that was their school day, which, unfortunately, concluded upon the rotten treachery of a classmate. It’s been a great walkabout until the tangent, and my mind moves quickly to save the moment.

“Hey, that reminds me, I wanted to show you something.”

It is Peanut Butter Jelly Time.




There are a few touchstones I have for each character in Flash Pulp, some bit of audio or visual candy that helps get me in the proper mood – few of them, however, have quite the same connection as Blackhall and the soundtrack to the film Ravenous.


On Monkey Men

I’ve been enjoying bmj2k’s “In Search Of…” articles quite a bit, so much so that I felt a need to quote his quotation as well as a snippet of his response:


NEW DELHI- Doctors at an Indian hospital are breathing more easily after a monkey trapped in its air-conditioning ducts was caught, the Hindustan Times reported.

The monkey, which was trapped for three days, threatened large-scale contamination of seven operating rooms at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences in New Delhi before it was captured on Friday.

Some on the hospital staff feared that the strange noises coming from the air-conditioning ducts were caused by a ghost. Then surgeons saw a small face and pair of eyes peering a vent during an operation.

[…] At any rate, we are not talking about normal monkeys which spook surgeons in hospitals. No, we are talking about some sort of alien monkey/human hybrid with the ability to turn invisible and wear pants. – read more
