Butter Team Weekend Beats Vol. 25

When Girl Talk fans who downloaded Feed the Animals for free make unauthorized mashup videos of Girl Talk mashups, what happens? Is that like when Diet Sundrop tried to sue Sundrop for taste infringement?

Girl Talk - Don't Stop (Mashing)

Is the Trey Told 'Em team playing on Sunday like a hip hop version of Garfield minus Garfield, where Girl Talk = Garfield? Because that just sounds like a ripoff of The Nietzsche Family Circus.

Did the term "mashups" come from that Beatsie Boys sample where the guy said he was going to stick his Gillis in the starch?

Mantan Moreland - Mashed Potatoes Comedy Routine (maybe FF to around 2:10)

Either way, this weekend is that kind of party with an implosion of 70+ artists creating anything but familiar laptop derivates. Not even counting the inaugural incarnation of indie Voltron glob Who is the Tunafish Man? (Dan Deacon + Spank Rock + Girl Talk), expect to see some unexpected collabs and spontaneous freaking in the aisles. Word is there will even be a couple Bmore elementary school janitors on site Sunday night for when things get sick, they got that special sawdust.
