New Mash Up Video: Enjoy The Cylons

Ever since I was a kid, i have loved the Cylons from the TV show Battlestar Galactica. I even made my very own super cool silver cylon mask out of paper mache for halloween once. When fan of the modern remake of BSG, and an artist I have produced, Laura Harley joked about listening to Depeche Mode’s ‘Enjoy The Silence’ and thinking ‘enjoy the cylons’, I had my fuel to create the ultimate cylon tribute video.

Over the last few months, this video has become quite a mash up. What I did is start with the remix of Enjoy The Silence by Mike Shinoda of Linkin Park. Then I edited it and re created parts so that Laura could sing over top. So that was the musical mash up, a remake of the remix of the original song.
Then for the video, I cut my favorite clips, chosen to work with the lyrics of the song, and give a good overview of the new and old cylons, and show some of the drama and conflict between the cylons themselves.

So enough reading already, check out the video!

    That’s a butt-kicking video my friend. I just commented on Laura’s site that I might have to watch that show again.

    I also mentioned another “cover” idea. Remember “The Clash” and “Rock the Casbah”? I’m thinking of a remake targeted at business-owners called “Lock the Cashbox”. Now that I think about it, it should be for Restaurants so the chorus lyrics can say: “The Chef don’t like it, Lock the Cashbox, Lock the Cashbox” (wink)

    Now all you need is to get Weird Al to rework the lyrics some more…so that it can be a parody and be put back on YouTube.
