Girl Talk "Feed The Animals"

I'm sure I've posted Girl Talk's "Feed The Animals" video, recently in fact.

But I thought it was worth reposting with this graphic mapping of the samples that compose the track (from Wired Magazine.)

In the modern laptop era, any monkey with Pro Tools can make a mashup. But Pittsburgh-based computer maestro Girl Talk (known to the IRS as Gregg Gillis) has turned the cut-and-paste process into a jams-packed jigsaw puzzle. His latest album, Feed the Animals (released digitally in June with hard copies out September 23), brims with 300 song snippets in just over 50 minutes (compared to around 250 in his previous effort). "People want to see the bar raised," Gillis says. Below, a beat-by-beat breakdown of a single track.

Interesting philosophy haha thank you very much, and yeah everyone of us want to see our bar raised in all ways, but if you want it you must work hard.
Thanks for sharing.
