And it feels like I am somebody that I used to know… Let’s do this one last time, let’s make the most of the night.

“United State of Pop 2012 (Shine Brighter)”

2012

Here’s to 2012 — you were an amazing year, and I don’t regret a second of you. The past year has proven to me that sometimes, everything has to fall apart in order to come together.

2013: Let’s do this again, but even better.

Yes, please.

“Five Step [Overdub Mashup]”

Radiohead vs. Dave Brubeck

Also, best thing said to me in recent memory:

“I hope you stay being a meteor that doesn’t just glance off atmospheres and drift away into the dark of space. I hope you keep on keeping on with direct hits on planets and with annihilating their civilizations.”

Where you think you’re going, baby? Now I’m at a payphone trying to call home.

“Call Me Maybe / Payphone”

Mashup produced by Kurt Schneider (<– some seriously rad shit)

Performed by Jessica Jarrell, James Alan, and Jake Broido

Best approximation of my synesthesia thus far!

Mashups are amazing. This is actually quite close to how I experience a ride in the car. I’ve explained before that this is the sort of thing my brain naturally filters out (a lot like everyone’s brain filters out background noise), but if I were to just sit in silence and pay attention, this is incredibly close to what I might hear.
