Review: Black Mirror: Season 5

The three episode fifth season of British writer and producer Charlie Brooker’s wildly popular and often imitated horror and sci-fi anthology series Black Mirror (which comes on the heels of the blisteringly ambitious and entertaining choose-your-own-adventure story Bandersnatch) suggests an enterprise that’s losing steam and original ideas in a hurry.

Bridgit Mendler and Miley Cyrus

Bridgit Mendler versus Miley Cyrus: “Hurricane In the U.S.A.” [Mashup]

Okay, Earlvin Jules Soco, you win. This is pure genius.

Earlvin on Soundcloud made the leap and mashed up two songs that go together like peanut butter and jelly. The 17-year-old Soundcloud user took Bridgit Mendler’s addictive “Hurricane” and mixed it in with Miley Cyrus’ “Party In the U.S.A.” If you didn’t hear the similarities before, you no doubt will recognize it now. The mashup even bridges some of the lyrics to the point that they even make sense as one song.
