Because I'm 32 flavors and then some

I'm in a deliriously random musical mood today. I might thank copious amounts of DayQuil, NyQuil, and a litany of other miscellaneous Quils I've been employing to destroy a nasty bug. I might also cite the fact that I've been quarantined in my apartment for 40+ hours now and let's be honest, I'm going a little nuts. I telecommuted yesterday and actually did quite a bit of work from home. Today? I did quite a bit of work tooling around my iTunes library.

* My friend Kris loves mashups and dj musak, so when I visited her in North Carolina this fall I was treated to all sorts of messy music. I forgot how much I love the random brilliance of mashups...when done right. Girl Talk does it right. Oh so right. He releases his stuff on the Illegal Art label and you can choose to pay for it, or not (a trendy paradigm familiar to Radiohead fans). I've been obsessing about his latest album, "Feed the Animals." To give you a sense of the chaos that is Girl Talk, here's one mix I'm partial to:

"In Step"
