Enron Tapes: MP3 Remix

Boing Boing has a great link to a mix of the Enron tapes with Snap!’s The Power in their post “Enron/I Got the Power mashup”. Tuba Frenzy created them, saying in his post “I’ve Got The Power”:

Ever since the big Enron bankruptcy and subsequent accounting scandal broke a couple of years ago, I’ve gotten a perverse pleasure from laughing at all things Enron-related. I still enjoy hunting for Enron memorabilia on eBay….funny stuff like the “Enron Code of Ethics” (unused, of course!!) or Enron schwag peppered with ironic quotes like “Ask Why” or MLK’s “Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.” But I digress….I got such a kick out of these Enron trader conversations that I decided to take portions of the audio clips and incorporate them into a remix of a song that seemed pretty topical: Snap!’s big 1990 hit “The Power”.

As for mashup fate of future Enron tapes? Tim at Tuba City says “…, someone with superior digital audio skills should try a remix of the Electric Slide (aka “Electric Boogie” by Marcia Griffiths) or maybe Eddy Grant’s “Electric Avenue”. And then we’ll take it higher…”

I've published HoT along with about 300+ friends since 2002. We're all Americans who are snarky and love our country. I'm a libertarian that registered Republican because I like to win elections. That's pretty much it.
