2015 wasn’t much better than 2014, but at least it was better. That’s a start which I hope to build on this year.
I started 2015 in a bad place. I was unemployed and going deeper and deeper into debt. On top of that, I was on my annual social media hiatus, so I cut myself off from any aid I could have received…or so I thought. At least my creative well wasn’t running dry at that time.
Fast forward to the present: I’m unemployed again, though I expect it to be a temporary situation. I’ve cut back on my involvement in producing and reviewing mashups, though this was by necessity more than anything else. Fortunately, since I’m on another social media break, I have more time to play around with for at least a few months.
It was my goal to produce less mashups than I did in 2014, if only to reduce the number of misfires I published. At this point, only “Eye Of Murdoch” stands out as more of a good idea at the time than a good idea. With that said, it doesn’t make me retch like some of my other work.
Of the thirteen mashups I produced in 2015, these are my favourites (listed in chronological order):
Lone Shot (Pat Benatar vs. Hans Zimmer) | Download
Take My Medicine (Franz Ferdinand vs. Snoop Dogg & Willie Nelson) | Download
Waiting For Law & Order (Mike Post vs. Gwen Stefani) | Download
Ever Powerless (Moby vs. Linkin Park) | Download
Help I’m Nasty (Metric vs. Amon Tobin) | Download
