I was just driving home this evening and rain and sunset mixed together to make everything cool and yellowish. I’d already taken more than enough photos at times like these, so I thought I’d do something a little different. Music is: Lamb – “Five”.

I shot a few bits of video during the drive from one friend’s home in Coral Gables to another friend’s home in South Miami. Here’s what came of it. Music: “Neuflex” by Two Lone Swordsmen.

While driving home one night, I encountered a lot of road construction, and noticed that the various flashing lights were vaguely in sync with the beat of the music. Music: “Beat Connection” by LCD Soundsystem.

If you haven’t seen The I.T. Crowd by now, then you’re obviously not living in the U.K., and/or not a geek. I am, of course, of the latter. Courtesy of someone posting at youtube.com and obviously violating some kind of copyright, here is a hillarious clip:
Enjoy! You’ll understand what 0118 999 881 999 119 7253 means in a moment, as soon as you press the play arrow above. Essentially, this show comes in the fine tradition of office comedies, such as Dilbert, Office Space, and The Office (U.K., then U.S. version). And if you’re a geek, you’ll absolutely love it.

2005 was the year the mash-up hit the big time. Perhaps 2006 will be the year of the re-cut. Earlier this year, several Brokeback Mountain spoofs became bona-fide internet phenomena, breaking the “scene” for re-cut film trailers wide open.
The idea is similar to that of the mash-up. Essentially, you re-edit a trailer to make it something it was never intended to be, obviously with hillarious results!
Here’s a sample of some great re-cut trailers:
1. American Pie
First, we have a re-cut trailer for American Pie, where the venerable teen movie becomes a slasher flick:
Next up, a re-cut Seven trailer turns the film into a buddy cop comedy… romance (Brokeback Mountain for that).
Tom Hanks goes from being a literal man-child to a psychopathic pedophile who kidnaps someone’s son in this re-cut trailer for Big.
4. The Shining
Rounding out this sampling is another oldie. The Shining is re-cut as a heartwarming tale about a foster father with writer’s block whose family trip leads him to come to an understanding and blah blah blah. You get the formula.
