Girl Talk Projects

Whoa! Someone has started a project to do a video version of Girl Talk's Feed The Animals, with part 2 and part 3 of what looks like a 14-episode adventure now on YouTube. (Side note: I was thinking the other day about doing a database journalism project with the album, breaking it all down into statistical units. There's all sorts of metadata: sample lengths, year the songs originally appeared, genre, etc. With all this data, you could crunch the numbers to reveal some new information. For instance, I'd like to know the median year-of-release of all the samples. That sounds interesting to me!)

wikipedia has a nice page on Girl Talk, listing most of the samples

Yeah, I linked to it a while back.

It's not data though -- it's just a list.

Rumor: Waxy might be on the case!

Yeah, I'm on it.

I just decided that this cut-and-paste-old-videos approach is too obvious and therefore wrong for Girl Talk.

Instead, the videos should be by Jeff Scher.
