Eight is Enough Company Too

In web development, a mashup is a web page or application that uses or combines data or functionality from two or many more external sources to create a new service. Combining Google maps with a database of Irish pubs and you can have an application that shows you where the best pubs in your area are.

In music (watch any episode of Glee) a mashup is a song or composition created by blending two or more songs, usually by overlaying the vocal track of one song seamlessly over the music track of another.

These can be just for humor or they can be really great and almost stand as a new composition.

This week I want you to try to come up with your own TV show mashup.

  • Pick any two shows from any era of television.
  • Combine select elements from each to make a new show.
  • Have Fun!

Bonus: Find a music mashup online and post a link here.
