Surprise Music Video Mashup Pleasure

A good friend turned me on to an intensely pleasurable music video mashup that I encourage you to check out.  I won’t spoil the surprise by telling you exactly what is being mashed, except to say it involves a major figure in pop music history colliding with the Chinese Cultural Revolution…

Sadly, the video can’t be uploaded to YouTube as it stands because the music track is obviously copyright and gets stripped immediately. There are versions available on YouTube, one with no sound and one with an alternate version of the music [here], but you really need to hear it with the original song.

zerode

is an over-caffeinated and under-employed grad school dropout, aspiring leftwing intellectual and cultural studies academic, cinéaste, and former poet. Raised in San Francisco on classic film, radical politics, burritos and soul music, then set loose upon the world. He spends his time in coffee shops with his laptop and headphones, caffeinating and trying to construct a post-whatever life.

 

What's in a name... The handle "zerode" is a contraction of Zéro de Conduite, the title of Jean Vigo's 1933 movie masterpiece about schoolboy rebellion.
