These Pop Culture and Video Game Mashup Posters Are Almost Too Much to Handle
If there's anyone better at mashing things together than Butcher Billy, I'm almost afraid to hear about them, because this is about as much awesome as I can stand. In his latest round of mashups, Billy pulled from a lot of different sources. Each one is centered on a video game, but some include actors while others include musicians, movies, or albums. They're all tremendous.Read on...
Cookie Monster + Tom Waits Mashup. Yeah, You Read That Right. [Video]Someone on this great wide Internet of ours made the following observation: "Tom Waits sometimes sounds eerily like Cookie Monster. Not that I mind!" Thus, the above video was born. Personally, I don't think the two sound much alike at all. For me, the pure joy of this video is watching the happiness of Sesame Street collide head-on with Tom Waits' nihilistic anthem "God's Away on Business." It's just too wonderful.

The Lady Gaga-Judas Priest Mashup [Video]
Lady Gaga, meet the real Judas. Judas Priest, of course. When Lady Gaga released her second single "Judas" off the album Born This Way this past May, it was only a matter of time before someone combined the pop superstar's song with the music of metal legends Judas Priest. Wax Audio did just that, mixing "Judas" with Judas Priest's "Painkiller," to create the impressive mash up "Lady Judas."

Anime Opening Credits are All the Same [Video]
Derek Lieu created this mashup of a staggeringly large amount of popular anime shows to show anime opening credits are basically all the same.
An explanation found on Derek's YouTube post:
It's always amused me the repeated imagery that exist in anime opening credit sequences. This video doesn't cover them all, but it has a lot of the big ones. Interesting thing I learned, if a character is running it's overwhelmingly to the left of the screen.I first started thinking about this years ago when I saw the X-Men intro that they made in Japan to replace the American one. The part that especially hit home was Wolverine, and Cyclops standing on some nondescript land mass. For this I used only textless credits I found on Youtube (with the exception of Evangelion). So if your favorite anime isn't in here either there was no textless version or it had a pretty unique opening sequence.
Below, a list of all of the anime used in the video:Read on...
