Big love for this for Channel 4 by LMFM
The idea has been around for ages (celebrity soundboards, edited political speeches and Chris Morris bastardised interviews) but this is lots of fun, has a nice design, it’s simple to create and share and you MIGHT GET YOURS ON THE TELLY!!
All pre-moderated word wise, so it’s down to your creative thinking.

A new joke out of some old ones.
Everything is a Remix is a four part series that investigates the history of remixing, sampling, stealing, transforming and how that mentality spills out of the context of music and into a wider mindset. You could even say that everything is a remix.
Can’t wait to see the others.
I’ve been asked to pick a record as part of the Taped Together Summer 2010 playlist.
I think it’s an absolute beauty so go and have a listen.

Interesting film about intellectual property and remix culture.
“Walking on Eggshells” is a 24-minute documentary about appropriation, creative influence, re-use and intellectual property in the remix age.
Worth a watch.

John Taylor’s Film The Blanks blog is an awesome experiment to abstract and / or reduce film posters.
Taking the art of the movie poster to an entirely new level, Taylor posts abstracted versions of popular and not-so-popular film posters on his blog, and readers guess the film based on the abstracted poster and clues.
Great concept and excellent design work.
