Hi, Ross here. This is our new website, youareweare.com. First off, I have some catching up to do. Let’s start with…
This is all from the tentatively titled Dear The Internet demo. Most of this was done in Sony Acid Pro, a fun application for Windows. In reverse alphabetical order:
- Yakkety Shady – This is a full length mash-up I did of the Benny Hill theme song and Shady’s Back by Eminem. I found out someone did exactly the same thing about a month or so before I did, but I never heard their version. But here’s my version.
- Whitenologic – Mini mash. Daft Punk + White Album. Madness.
- Nightlife Supermega – The nightlife ain’t no good life, but it’s my life.
- Michael Jackson – Smooth Criminal – “No Effort” Midi Remix – Sort of self-explanatory. Like you’ve never heard it before. As simple as dragging two files. Almost.
- Madonna – Ray of Light – “No Effort” Midi Remix – Part II of a series. I would love if the people who made these midis could hear these versions. However, the where and the who were lost a long time ago.
- Katamari o F light – Madonna + Katamari Damacy. Gets a little shaky in the middle, but otherwise I think it works suspiciously well…
- Holla Back Mario Migraine – There’s a lot going on here
- Gulf of Voyager – Midi fun
- Holla Back Mario Migraine – SNES Vocoder Midi Daft Punk Gwen Stefani
- Cat Power – I Found a Reason – Poorly Executed Techno Remix – You may have heard this if you are friends with me.
- Can’t Stop The Beatles – More from the “madness” department.
- Borderline/Borderline – Coincidence???????????????????????????
- Bohemian Nightmare – D-U-B. Also, Weird Al.
- Big Boat Foley – The blues, however, are not much of a coincidence with each other
- Belle & Seplanetary – Smells like 2006
- Belle & Sebeatbox – An early attempt at enhancing a mostly acoustic track
There’s also some deemed too YTMND-related for inclusion.
- yestergalactic – proud of this. The YTMND wasn’t very popular, though
- when-im-kentucky – for another disastrous YTMND idea I had
- whatishoth – Very popular with the onlines
- united-queen – United States of Whatever Surf Remix Plus A Cameo
- mother – So I started saying mom, mom, mom, mom
- biag – Recording of a lost Biagio hit
- axelfzep – More uninspired-but-creepy blues remixing
Most of these were from 2006. I made a lot. And verily, several were pretty popular amongst Internet nerds. As of this post, I’ve attracted over 1.4 million total page views from my YTMND art nugs. Check ’em out when you have a little time.
One of them did especially well.
It constituted my entry into Stephen Colbert’s Green Screen Challenge.
The Postman/Mr. Postman
An auto-mashup using the “make music video” feature of Windows Movie Maker. I figured out how to cram the entirety of The Postman into WMM and then had it automatically edit it to The Decemberists’ “From My Own True Love (Lost at Sea)”. I like this technique because it creates something beautiful from simply identifying a long clip of video and a short audio clip that are thematically similar and telling WMM to have at it. Similar to the “no effort” midi remixes above.
These Tripods are Crazy
Another WMM auto-mashup. This time The Tripods with the Moldy Peaches’ “These Burgers”. I like this one because WMM screwed up and made it all glitchy, but that makes it even better. I should note that WMM at least implies that the “music video” will somehow be affected by the audio track. I find this to be true to an extent, but after some testing, I remember deciding that WMM has a mind of its own and does pretty much whatever it feels like.
Commander Riker’s Lonely Hearts Club Band
Again, “no effort”. I wish I could take credit for the horn sync, but it’s all WMM’s twisted brain.
A Very Hobo Riker Christmas
This was our Christmas card. It’s grating nonsense, pure and simple. Star Trek and hobos. I hope you’re the type of person who enjoys this sort of thing.
