A Mashup

Musical snippets don't get much play here anymore. Instead, I tend to post videos and links on Facebook. However I have are a few links floating around the deserves a less ephemeral treatment.

From the forthcoming American version of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo comes Trent Reznor's latest piece of brilliance, a cover of Led Zepplin's 'Immigrant Song' that once again makes me hate that Zepplin wrote that song so fricking short!

I thought I'd blogged about being an extra in this video when it was shot in mid-July, but I can't find the post if I did. Sadly, none of my shots made the video, but it was a fun morning and a great Hollywood experience, something I'm more conscious of as I can see the end of my time here approaching. My camera jostling skills are on display from 1:27 to 1:29; working out and pointing out that fact? So Hollywood.

There's a high res version on Frontalot's site.

As the end of 2011 approaches, so the urges of internet creatives turn to annual retroscpectives. In that vein comes Ben Stiller's (Mashup Germany) annual Top of the Pops mashup compilation of the year's biggest pop songs. I'm always quite proud that this is the first time I've heard most of these tracks. Because I'm an elitist fuck, yes.

I have neglected my mashup feeds for a while, so the next couple of hours are musical catchup.
