Walmart Is Sending Pitbull To Alaska.

So a while back American super store Walmart, in a callous attempt to boost their online profile, announced that they had teamed up with hip-hop artist Pitbull and would get him to play a live performance in the Walmart outlet which received the single most likes on Facebook.

Of course the Internet community took notice of this announcement, in particular a writer for the Boston Phoenix, David Thorpe who ignited an online campaign for people to ‘like’ the shit out of the only Walmart store in Alaska. Fast forward to the present and it seems Pitbull is indeed on his way to perform at the Walmart in Kodiak, Alaska. Well played Internet. Well played indeed.

Just a shame there isn’t a Walmart in Iran.

Pop Song Mash-Up Proves All Pop Songs Sounds The Same.

It gets in your head and stays there all day long. You catch yourself inadvertently whistling it whilst at work and humming it while you sit on the can. Pop songs are infectious but that’s probably because the majority of them these days sound almost identical

And just to prove this point here’s a an excellent mash-up of some of the most popular hits of the past 12 months in under four minutes. The collection was remixed by YouTube user Vissagan, who explained:

I was listening to the radio when I realized I could mix every song I had just heard. Pop songs are so replaceable these days…

 

The 1st Min Of The Caddyshack Theme Remixed.

There are very few films which instantly remind us of summer, movies which prompt us to recall long afternoons, short sleeves, warmer climes and ever lasting sunsets. One film in particular, for us at least, which gets the old summer memory sensory firing is the classic Chevy Chase, Rodney Dangerfield golf romp Caddyshack.

Here’s a nifty remix by DJPanther72 of the very first minute of the Caddyshack theme, (I’m alright sung by Kenny Loggins), you know the bit with the golf course at dawn, the sprinklers and then the all important gopher?

Cassetteboy Vs The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.

If you live and work in Britain it’s almost completely unavoidable that you will have heard or read about the Queen’s impending Diamond Jubilee which takes place this weekend for four full fucking days.

Thankfully video manipulator Cassetteboy has released a dirty little tribute to Her Majesty to take our minds off the whole affair.

 

Tenacious D Have A New Video And A New Album.

This six minute long beast heralds the return of the comedy musical duo of Jack Black and Kyle Gass and their forthcoming album Rize Of The Fenix, since their disappointing box office flop that was Tenacious D: The Pick Of Destiny. In fact since that turkey the pair have done very little together, until now.

Less a music video and more of a promotional short film it stars Tim Robbins, Val Kilmer and Dave Grohl, who has confirmed he plays the drums for most of the tracks on the new album which will be released in May which will be supported by a 16 day tour across the States by the duo.
