Television mash-up

[A post for e]

Seriously, the new Qantas ad is so silly:

Plus, why didn't they just save money and re-use the We Can Be Heroes title sequence? It totally fits the brief of the ad way better than the actual one!

Honestly, nobody listens to me.

and then

As she heard it for the second time unexpectedly, she felt the true pain of sorrow deep within the centre of her heart, and it began to pour, then stream out of her face and nose. As soon as she knew that she needed to stop crying she suddenly noticed that she was crying, in fact wailing. Just as quickly as that torrent of water comes, she subsided, and re-centred.

And then she realised that her shirt was on backwards and all in her world was good and then the light returned to her.

"What makes a man a man?
A friend of mine once wondered.
Is it his origins?
The way he comes to life?
I don't think so.
It's the choices he makes
not how he starts things
but how he decides to end them."

I have not yet known a true man. Only glimpses. We can hope.

Typugraphy. So so cute.

Lady Gregg or Old Gaga?

I have bad brain wiring that makes my brain link songs together and I will often inappropriately belt out the chorus of a completely unrelated song at the end of the original song's verse, confusing all around me.

In this instance though, I think it stands to reason... allow me to explain, with the use of diagrams...

I have travelled a very wide spectrum with Lady Gaga - initially I just thought she was an annoying pop culture thingy for the youngsters, then I began to understand her to be genuinely making a lot of effort as a performance artist, and now I understand her to be a living, breathing audiovisual art installation I seem to have embraced her. To the point of purchasing her album "The Fame". The second I heard the chorus of "Love Game", I immediately started doing an analogue mashup, bursting into the chorus of the Old Gregg/Howard Moon classic "Do you love me?".

Now, an experiment, if you will. If you are not familiar with either reference, might I suggest you listen to the two songs in reverse order, starting with the Mighty Boosh song "Do You Love Me?", and then and only then, listening to the Lady Gaga song "Love Game". Now, having both videos loaded up, cue "Do You Love Me?" to 0:16. Play "Love Game" to about 1:14, stop and play "Do You Love Me?" and tell me you can't see what my brain was doing there.

In fact, in the googling required for this post, I have discovered that a few people have already made this connection, and have done some mashups of their own.

I don't mind them, but I have a feeling I might one day take this a little step further and attempt an acoustic mashup of my own... stay tuned... and let me know which stage name I should use of the two titular options above.
