  • First of all, let’s get this out of the way: I can’t even bring myself to say the name of the song that’s been combined with an old Ike & Tina Turner number, but I bet you can guess it. (via Mashuptown.com)

  • Okay, clean your ears out with some lovely and innocent holiday-themed bootlegs: it’s another “Santastic” compilation, edited by Boston’s DJ BC and featuring the work of Go Home Productions, Freddy King of Pants, and a special “Dick In a Box” mix from A Plus D! Come to think of it, maybe this isn’t so innocent. (Santastic3)

  • Not street enough for you? Well, SoCal’s DJ Skee has put together a version of Jay-Z’s latest album American Gangster using music from another well-known gangster movie: it’s American Godfather, and while I’m a bit put off by Skee’s ego (“often cited as the definitive DJ for the West Coast”?!) Radar seems to like it. (Download at SendSpace)

  • Now here’s what mashups are really all about: actual musical craft. Lenlow’s smooth combo of Led Zeppelin, Buffalo Springfield, and a bunch more stuff feels like a whole new song, so shut up about this being a “cringe-inducing fad,” Radar. You’re cringe-inducing. Nyah! (Via Lenlow’s site)
  • Dear Reader,

    This feels like the most important fundraising drive since I've been CEO of Mother Jones, with staggeringly high stakes and so much uncertainty. In "News Is Just Like Waste Management," I try to unpack the reality we all face and how we can rise to the challenge. If you're able to, this is a critical moment to support Mother Jones’ nonprofit journalism: We need to raise $400,000 to help cover the vital reporting projects we have planned, and right now is no time to pull back.
