This video is so amazing I'm almost hyperventilating from its genius. It takes an infamous episode from The Brady Bunch featuring poor Jan wearing a hideous wig and mashes it up with Brian De Palma's '70s horror masterpiece Carrie — complete with his signature split-screen shots. Two great tastes that taste great together!
I kinda enjoyed Friends when it was on, but you're forced to admit that the plotlines were absurdly banal when you watch their dialogue mouthed by Wonder Woman and Aqua Man. This mashup is pretty funny, but don't these superheroes have something better to do?
Clinton played the saxophone, and here his bud former British Prime Minister Tony Blair covers the Clash classic "Should I Stay or Should I Go?" It manages to sound kinda punk. Hey, Tone, how about a God Save the Queen encore?
Or the Cha Cha Slide gets dorkified—however you choose to view it. Yesterday while viewing videos for Giggle's poll on cheesy dance songs, I accidentally had two vids on in different browsers. So while I was watching the Cha Cha Slide video, I kept hearing the accordion playing from The Chicken Dance. At first, I thought, wow, who samples accordions?! That is rad, and a first! Turns out, the following is a first...
Oh, yah? I know there was a lot more to the awesome Fargo screenplay, but after seeing this mashup, it looks like there were also an awful lot of "Oh, yah's"!
Sometimes, tough love is what's in order. And with the magic of video editing, you can have Tyra Banks yelling at an ANTM contestant who disappointed her mashed up with Britney crying during an interview. Britney, listen to this! Seriously. This is what you need to hear.
The Virtual Video Map won't solve your munchies or need for shelter problems, but it might inspire you to plan a vacation.
You just click on the markers on the map and are treated to YouTube videos about the location. It's essentially an extended version of the New Seven Wonders Of The World Google/YouTube Mashup, which offers a sneak peek at India's Taj Mahal, Great Wall of China, Petra in Jordan, Brazil's statue of Christ the Redeemer, Peru's Machu Picchu, Mexico's Chichen Itza pyramid and The Colosseum in Rome.
I never knew I wanted to visit Suomi, Finland until today.
If "can you hear me now?" is part of your everyday vocab, you might want to check out Signal Map, a user-generated cell phone signal map that notes the strength of major service providers on a map. You can use the free service to find a cell signal in your area, or add your signal to help others. As you can see from the image below, my search for AT&T service in the 90210 zip code showed there is a three to five-bar signal in Beverly Hills, while there's limited coverage in the West Hollywood area. So, if Brandon Walsh had an iPhone, he'd be all set...
The new Seven Wonders Of The World were just announced in an official ceremony last week, but the Google mashups have begun!
Mibazaar has created a Google Maps View (along with video from YouTube) of the new wonders, which include India's Taj Mahal, Great Wall of China, Petra in Jordan, Brazil's statue of Christ the Redeemer, Peru's Machu Picchu, Mexico's Chichen Itza pyramid and The Colosseum in Rome. You can explore all the wonders without hopping on a plane (although I suggest you do that too!) by watching the videos accompanying each site.
The map and video mashup is particularly absorbing in the case of Machu Picchu and Chichen Itza because you can check out the surrounding areas and revel in their wild architecture and existence.
Today's website of the day Fast Food Maps certainly isn't the most useful, or healthy site I've found, but it offers that oh-so-greasy quick fix we all crave every once in a while in the form of an innovative mashup site. (Shhh, don't tell Fit!)
The site combines google maps with the location of fast food restaurants in more than 50 cities across the United States. Last time I checked there were 49,747 McDonald's, In-N-Out, Burger King, Pizza Hut etc. on the map, stretching across the US but primarily on the east and west coasts as well as the south.
I'm a strict Fast Food naysayer, but the site could potentially be a great road trip guide or excuse to whip out your smartphone while on the road. While the selection is a bit limited right now I'm sure there will be a bajillon fast food restaurants on there in no time.
