A Brand New Mashup...Or...Look Out T-Pain

I've always liked to mash things up. Mostly potatoes, but I also remember I use to mash ketchup and mustard together to dip my fries into. I also enjoyed mashing as many ingredients as possible together to make new and better recipes. Most of them failed. But, that's not the type of mashing I'm talking about.

According to Wikipedia: a mashup is a Web application that combines data or functionality from two or more sources into a single integrated application. The term mashup implies easy, fast integration, frequently done by access to open APIs and data sources to produce results that were not the original reason for producing the raw source data. An example of a mashup is the use of cartographic data from Google Maps to add location information to real estate data, thereby creating a new and distinct Web service that was not originally provided by either source.

Well...what happens when you mashup TV news and the ever popular - AUTO TUNE???
Wonder no more!

I'm not really sure if I like the news better with or without the auto tune...but I think I might like the application of auto tune better on the news rather than on music. For the record...I DO NOT LIKE AUTO TUNE MUSIC...but Auto Tune The News...I do like.

What I'm really impressed by is the quality of work by these would-be journalists. The edits are clean, the pacing is fantastic, it is funny without being forced. Take a good look stale-journalist, maybe you can learn something from this???

Remember if you love the music from the 80's and 90's, become a fan of my show...Eagle Gold
...and if you live in sure to be a fan of Eagle20
