What’s the over/under on takedown within 24?

I’ll take the over on that.

Just a heads up, don’t know if this is a false positive or not, but Malwarebytes blocks the link to the download page.

Weird. Okay, the blocked link points to


but if you do a google search for Palette Swap Ninja, it sends you to


Which Malwarebytes is just fine with. As you can see, both links without the quotes on the preview pane give you the same preview, so it’s probably just fine.


Truly a wonderful thing and better than any unicorn chaser after a day of brain hurting from Alabama healthcare moronics. Thank you.

ETA: I’d only watched the first track video when I posted yesterday. Watched them all last night and I am in awe of these guys. The way the story arc maps perfectly to the tone and cadence of each track is just perfection. From their blog announcement:

Writing hyper-specific lyrics that match the original songs’ cadences; reverse-engineering everything the Beatles recorded, from distorted saxophone riffs to Indian tabla rhythms; recording everything from scratch and learning as we went — well, that’s what takes five years.

I cannot believe only 11 comments so far from a BB community I thought might be all over this. How about linking to each video, say one a day, Rob? These guys totally deserve more exposure.


i read that it took them five years to complete these, and the more i listen, the more i believe it. there was a LOT of thought put into it. i mean, pairing obi-wan’s instruction on the force with harrison’s “within you, without you” is just inspired. and working in R2’s original sounds as a counterplay to the sitar and tabla just works so well. and that’s just one song! all the lyrics really mesh with the songs like that.


I’m disappointed that “A Day In The Life of Red Five” doesn’t end with a studio chatter tape loop. Missed opportunity for the Medal Ceremony methinks.

That really cheered me up. Thanks!

Brilliant. Just brilliant. Thank you!

So far “Luke in the Desert” is my favorite track on this mashup… seriously how can you beat that chorus:
♫ “Luke is in the Desert and Whining” ♫
