Feed The Animals

I downloaded Girl Talk's Feed the Animals from illegal-art after following a link from one of the music sites, but it wasn't until today, after reading yesterday's NY Times article, that I started listening to it. It reminds me of the excitement of finding out about mashups back in 2004, but a more wrapped up, commercial version-- a more accessible, updated, and less clowny version of DJ Yoda's Amazing Adventures. Like most mashups, GT's songs capture the best moments of popular contemporary songs to stir up your emotions in a post-post-modern we-play-everything radio play for the short-attention span, multitasking, always-online, text-messaging twitter generation.
