It’s here it’s here it’s here!

I live for these.

He used Blinding Lights as the main beat, which makes me SUPER HAPPY because that’s my top song of the year. I would have guessed Dynamite as the main beat, but I was wrong.

As usual.

I know I’m not doing my Decade of Music project anymore, but would y’all still like to see an end-of-the-year music recap?

(Does anyone care?)
(Does anyone even read this blog anymore?)


I like this one.

The tradition is to make DJ Earworm’s yearly mashups my last downloaded song for the year, but it’s tempting to break that tradition this year by making it my download for December 30th and make his decade mashup my download for December 31st, since that would be the last day of this DECADE-LONG project.

(I can’t believe it’s almost over!)

Oh, here is said decade mashup:

Also, Piano Guys + tons of Christmas lights = yay.

This makes me so freaking happy. I love these guys.

United State of Pop: 2018 Edition

The mashup is here!


I’d probably like it more if I recognized more of the songs. I wasn’t really “hip to teh soundz” of 2018 compared to previous years.

Don’t want to diminish Earworm’s talent, though. It’s a good mashup, it’s just one I don’t “recognize,” if that makes sense.

In fact, the only song I could recognize was This Is America. Seriously.

I probably know some of the others, but not in mashup form.

I do like the look of a lot of the music videos, though…I’ll have to give ‘em a watch and see if I like the corresponding songs as well!


So DJ Earworm was a little later with this year’s United State of Pop, but man, it was worth the wait.

This one is really good. One of my favorites and definitely the best since 2014.

The Worm

Hey, check it out, the DJ Earworm 2016 mashup is here!

Not bad, not bad. Certainly better than 2015, but as I mentioned last year, 2015 was not a great year for music in my opinion.

Hell, let’s rate all the ones he’s done so far, shall we?

In order from fave to least: 2009, 2014, 2008, 2013, 2016, 2007, 2012, 2010, 2015, 2011


United State of Pop 2015

This year’s United State of Pop is out!!!

Meh. It’s not my favorite of the ones he’s done, but I don’t blame that on him. I blame that on this year’s music. The other guy I get my mashups from, Daniel Kim, has two parts for his Pop Danthology 2015, and I’m not a big fan of either one. Again, I think it’s this year’s music.

But judge for yourselves!

2014 Beats

The 2014 DJ Earworm mashup is here!

Considering how crappy the music’s been this year, this is an amazingly catchy mashup. I like it (though it took me a few listens).

United State of Pop 2013

Alright, so ever since I’ve started this “download a new song everyday” thing, I’ve made my the last download of the year be DJ Earworm’s United State of Pop mashup for that particular year.

I plan to do the same thing this year. However, this year’s mashup is so freaking good that I’ve decided to give it its own blog post. Behold!

2009’s mashup has been my favorite since it came out, but I honestly think this one’s better. The video’s pretty awesome, too.

My favorite parts are 2:03 (I love that chord, whatever that is) and everything past 4:20.


So I linked to a super awesome discussion of Leibniz’ Monadology the other day, right?

Well, if you’ve listened to that (if you haven’t go do it now, fools!), I highly recommend The Partially Examined Life to get more amazing discussions of a wide variety of philosophical works by some of the major dudes in philosophy. Click on the “Podcasts” tab up at the top to see the whole list of discussions.

Seriously, these are awesome. Next up for me is HUUUUUUME! Freakin’ love Hume, man. That’s why I have this shirt.

Also, UI drama is happening because of my tuition waiver thingy. I had  whole rant typed out but I deleted it because I’m trying to deal with frustration in a more constructive manner this year. That will probably end with me repressing everything because that’s just how I am, but what’re you going to do?

OH, and if any of you haven’t seen/heard this yet (or seen anything by DJ Earworm):

Yes, this post was heavy in the “stuff on the internet that’s not mine” material. I’m stressing about the upcoming semester, deal with it.

A good way to free the soul

So I’ve linked to this guy’s 2008 remix before, but his 2009 remix is pretty awesome too, so I’ll just link to all three he’s done, so you can get a good dose of awesome remix happiness before the new year.
