Moon Mix

JunkThief is eagerly awaiting the arrival of his second turntable in order to source his stash of 78s and be able to do analog mixes again. Heck, JunkThief is so retro he may buy an acetate machine to record the songs of his two pet Dodo birds.

Great blogger/vlogger/raconteur extraordinaire Eva Deadbeat has a great post over here of Kid Koala with an amazing reworking of Moon River the way it is supposed to be re-imagined. As both Shakespeare and Warhol sort of said, the best art is not original but that which is purposely repurposed.

UPDATE: And just as I posted this entry, the rattle of the familiar brown van came roaring down York Street. Christmas in April! Yeah. It's here. Many acetate to MP3s to come.

PS as a "stolen" footage montage artist, i second the delights of re-mixing art.

I hope to have them comin' soon. May promises to have less travel. Though the Numark model is very portable, those old Victor and Edison discs don't always do so well with carry on.

Just can't wait to have "Birmingham Bertha" mege with Alanis' version of "My Humps"!
