Mentioned Stuff and Link(s) (during the show)

OG Mash-up / Remix contest
Okay to Sean's (da wiki master's) suggestion, so we've started this creative contest. So the deal is... take audio from the show... and create your own music, or whatever (that you own the copyright too), and make a OG mash-up using audio from the show. Just like the wiki master did a while back, when he did that Jefferson Techno remix, and when Killer Penguin sent in a Jefferson Mash-Up as well...

By next week, we are likely to have a clean sound clips, recorded just for this contest. Come on! Submit your entires!

We will run this contest to the end of the year, and play back the entries during the New Years show... if everyone needs more time, email us, maybe we'll extend the contest... either way, send us your OG mash-up / remixes in! Do it! Do it NOW!

As usual, email your entries to:, and use the subject line of: OG MASH-UP CONTEST; stereo MP3s are preffered. Right now there's no limit on how many entries you can send; but please don't clog our email.

Listen to the show for more details.
