Stephen Colbert, that master of modern web integration, is at it once again. The blowhard's blowhard is calling out for fans to remix a recent interview with Stanford University Internet law professor Lawrence Lessig, in which the pair talked about the legalities of copyright in reference to remixing.A fan remix of a talk show chat about remixing. Meta-tastic.
Specifically, Colbert is looking for a mix with a "pumping k-hole groove." He explains the challenge (and gives up some insane footage featuring himself in glow-in-the-dark war paint) here.Chronic remixers-- looking at you, Diplo, Girl Talk, Justice-- this is your chance at true celebrity.
Of course, this isn't the first time Colbert has reached out to the music community at large for nonsensical laughs. You may recall The Great Decemberists Guitar Solo Challenge (easily the most culturally rewarding endeavor in that band's entire history, IMO), his recent Christmas record with Feist and Elvis Costello among others, and his would-be beef with Kanye West. Too bad Kanye is all anti-beef now.
