What I Likes | Pogo

I like Pogo.  His music and videos are frenetic, fast, clever and they make me feel warm and fuzzy.  He takes things from my childhood and makes me like them all over again, for new reasons.  This type of music is called a mashup, although not long ago it would've been called a remix.  Or would it?  It seems that Pogo does take existing songs and remixes them to make a new song.  But he also makes new songs from sounds, clips, bits and such. A lot of his music, without the video, would be difficult to 'source'.  The samples are so short and staccatto, that it sounds like a phone call cutting out, but in a rhythmic way.
