Sorcerer's Apprentice Fantasia Mash-Up

This is a really cool mashup of scenes from Sorcerer's Apprentice and Fantasia.  Watch the video above.

They did a great job using the autotuner to turn the dialogue from the Sorcerer's Apprentice clips into musical notes blending them nicely into the music from Fantasia.  I also enjoyed the modern beat added to the music updating it without lessening the original.

I love it when a big studio sanctions a mashup.  It's like watching the kids grow up and get accepted as an adult in the world.

Space Monkey's Song For the Divine Mother of the Universe

Check out the video above for Ben Lee’s music video: Song For the Divine Mother of the Universe.  The video is titled Space Monkey.

This is a nice moving video.  It starts out sweet then uses a dystopian warning to move me into action.  Not only do I get the ecological importance from the video but it also has two other warnings: the dangers of global war and the importance of our space program.  After all this is our only planet for now, the space program and humanity spreading out into space would increase the odds of us as a people surviving global catastrophe.

I really like the  Planet of the apes feel to the video as well.

...developed in collaboration with the World Wildlife Foundation Australia to “raise awareness of the devastating impact the human race could have on the planet, unless a more meaningful, healthier and sustainable way of life is adopted to help preserve its future.”

Exploring: Glee Season 2

I'm so excited that Glee is returning with a new season!  This is one of the best shows that is also not your typical musical show.  What makes Glee so great is it's engaging story line, many characters to care about, great lessons like follow your bliss and be who you are, promotion of mashups and singing that is often better than the original scores.
