Another Mashup: Jethro Tull vs. Deadeye Dick

newagehuntinggirl.mp3 is my latest effort.  I was going through my itunes stuff recording bpm’s using this little utility, and noticed that “Hunting Girl” by Tull and “New Age Girl (Mary Moon)” by Deadeye Dick had almost the same beat.  So I played around and got this little number.  It’s kinda pleasantly harmonious, especially compared to the creepy monstrosity which was my previous mashup effort.  None of Tull’s and very little of Dick’s lyrics survived; it’s mostly riffs and beats.

Caller Warned DJs Of Water Intoxication Death – Caller Warned DJs Of Water Intoxication Death:

“I want to say that those people drinking all that water can get sick and die from water intoxication,” said the caller.

“Yeah, we’re aware of that,” replied a DJ. “They signed releases so we’re not responsible, okay?”

If I were one of the children of the woman who died this way, I would spend the rest of my life figuring out how I was going to find and kill that DJ.

Recreated 1918 Flu Virus Mows Down Experimental Monkeys Like Wheat

Scary stuff.

“The lungs of infected monkeys were destroyed in just days as their immune systems went into overdrive after a Canadian laboratory rebuilt the virus…. Symptoms appeared within 24 hours of exposure to the virus, and the subsequent destruction of lung tissue was so widespread that, had the monkeys not been put to sleep a few days later, they would literally have drowned in their own blood.”

No wonder that thing killed so many people so fast. The article doesn’t mention whether these findings solve the mystery of why the 1918 flu killed mostly young, healthy people.
