Viva la Love Story

In my humble opinion, mash-ups are one of the best musical developments of the past five years. Why do mashups work so well? I'd like to remind you of that scene in "Ratatouille" where it is explained that one food (cheese, for example) and another (fruit) are perfectly good by themselves, but something entirely new and exciting and amazing when eaten together. Music works on the same level, I think, and this is a perfect example of that.

Heck, I'm not even a big John Schmidt fan, but this wowed me.



  1. Wow, that was amazing.

    I just looked at your profile and read the 411. Very funny.

  2. I loved it! A good thing to wake up too

    on a music kick eh?

  3. Very pretty, but more of a mix up than a mash-up.
    Take for instance Neopolitan ice-cream, 3 flavors in a carton, each distinct.A mix.
    Blend them all in a food processor. A mash.
    Is his old dad gonna come out and tell German jokes?

  4. If you asked me, I'd say it was pretty schmidty

  5. True, true. It is more of a mix than a mash.

    And I've got a hundred bucks that says the "schmidty" comment was from my bro, Tyler. :)

    He, Me, and the rest of the family, saw John Schmidt's Christmas program a few years back. We called it "A Very Schmidty Christmas" because it went too long and involved 30 minutes of Grandpa Schmidt telling jokes.

  6. That is why I love John and Steven Nelson!! Hope you don't mind if I fb it. I lOVE it!!!

  7. Have you seen 50 cent meet Thomas the train?
