Some Of Our Favorite Music Mash-Ups

The idea of mashing is synonymous with potatoes. However, there's another type of "mash-up" that has nothing to do with traditional cooking methods. The music mash-up is where two completely different songs are synced together to create a new sonic feel of popular songs. The music mash-up has been around for a couple years, and thanks to the internet many DIYers are showing off their mash-up expertise publicly. Here's some of our favorite mash-ups. Let us know what songs you think would make for a great mash-up.

Review: Prodigy: 'Invaders Must Die'

March 2nd, 2009 3:11pm EST
When it comes to success, the Prodigy has definitely had their fair share. It may be going out on a limb to say, due to the excellent body of work the band has amassed throughout the years, but 'Invaders Must Die' could be the best they have released to date.

Writer's Viewpoint: Disputing An Iconic Song List

January 30th, 2009 2:14pm EST
It takes a cataclysmic event to derail Overrated/Underrated from its usual Friday spot. Currently the Oscars have been serving as that disruptive force, but this week interruption comes from the most unlikely source: a sports columnist from the Kansas City Star.

This is because Joe Posnanski has suggested on his blog that we stop voting artists into the Rock 'N' Roll Hall of Fame and shift our focus to Hall-Worthy songs. Songs he deems "Iconic". His criterion for including a song on the ballot is that it be "A song that represents a set of beliefs or a way of life. So, I see these s...

The performances lineup is Coachella-esque impressive, with U2 and Coldplay joining the likes of Jonas Brothers, Jay-Z, Kanye West, Lil Wayne(!), Paul McCartney(!!) and Radiohead(!!!). But just as important as the performers are the award winners, and if you're in an office pool somewhere or on your way to Vegas and need a little help predicting the winners, you've come to the right place!

Okay, so Starpulse ran an article on February 21 titled "Guyliner: Hot Or Not? You Decide," but we left a number of big names off of that list-- enough, in fact, to make a second list of more men who publicly wear the dark penciling around their eyes.

Some find it sexy and attractive, while others find it downright disgraceful; but in either case there are plenty of guys doing it lately. While our first article may have taken a positive slant on the issue at hand, this writer is only creeped out by these men who are obviously more concerned with their image than anything else. Some a...

It may be an anomaly, but there are some men in the entertainment biz today who won't go anywhere without their guyliner. We can't help but notice that out of the few to publicly don make-up, the ones who wear it so well make the guyliner quotient go up big time! There are also some guyliner looks that are just not making the grade. Let us know what you think!

Leto, who graduated straight from his acting stint on "My So-Called Life" to lead band man for alternative rockers 30 Second To Mars, looks as if he never leaves home without his guyliner on.
