You might have seen Improv Everywhere’s Grand Central Station Freeze-in a few months ago. This Youtube video is from yesterday’s anti-war freeze-in that took place in Washington, DC’s Union Station. For being less than 24 hours old, my friend did a great job editing the video.

Although I don’t have an exact translation, I really enjoy this little rap (even if its a commercial). Releasing the contents of this website is a significant Change of Life in many respects. Anyways, I am now a fan of Sara Da Pin Up and will see if I can get her to come to DC sometime.

Been a fan of Gotan Project for a few years and last night I found this video. It really captures the specific time (December 19, 2001), place (Buenos Aires, Argentina), and sound of the city (Tango). If my memory serves me correctly, a good friend of mine was there when that took place. I’ll have to ask him about his recollections. I was in Saint Louis in December of 2001 at home with my old girlfriend on Christmas break from school.

Over the summer I created my first YouTube mash-up “Scratch Slavery,” which allows you to create a beat track to congressional hearing about slavery being used in the construction the American embassy in Baghdad.
Today I am posting something a little different- French Youtube videos.

Political Activism + Turntablism
Taking congressional testimony stating that your country is still engaged in slavery and mashing it up with a scratch demo video by DJ Loomy showing off the new Vestax Controller One.
Press the play button on both videos:
The scratch video ends first, but you know it deserves a rewind, because history is repeating.
(sometimes the videos do not show up in Firefox!)
