2000s mixburst #6: mash-up

another big early-decade buzz concept... this one clearly took off and exploded in pretty undeniable ways. maybe a little crazy even to attempt making this mix, but of course it's also appropriate in various meta ways that i'm not going to bother getting into... anyway, it was particularly hard to know what to include here, but i tried to balance "historical significance" (the canonical touchstones – "a stroke of genius," the grey album, night ripper – and i made it a point to feature something other than the over-lauded biggy/elton moment) with a few personal favorites ("freak like me" – which is brilliantly, as i always point out, a remix of a cover of a mashup – is undeniably both) and, in particular, trying to get in some songs that i might otherwise want to include in these mixes in other forms. killed a bunch of birds, basically.
