Here in the Experiments area you'll find all the brow-furrowing, chin-stroking activities that The ECC has been up to. Mischievous MP3s, vituperous videos, cued and ready for instant consumption and sardonic satisfaction.

Note the categories to the left. If you want only music, click MP3s. If you want only videos, there's that too. You can also peek into our Testing Area to hear beta tests and unfinished experiments that we're playing around with.  And if you're wondering just what the hell we were thinking when we made those experiments, you might find the answers in our blog.  Recent additions to all four categories are listed below.

Double the fat and still relevant

Remember our 1994 album Double The Phat and Still Tasteless?

A few months ago I was getting food for our cat.  She's 19 years old, and like many old cats her kidneys are failing so she needs low-protein cat food.  The problem is, low-protein cat food apparently doesn't taste very good.  So we experimented with a few different brands, and I lucked into a cheaper brand at a close-out store.  Problem was, while its protein content was about equal to the expensive brands from the vet, the fat content was half as much, and I figured that would mean it would taste worse.  Surprisingly, our cat preferred it, which prompted my comment:

"Huh -- the food from the vet has double the fat, but it's still tasteless."

Never expected to use that phrase in my everyday speech.  Yet, here we are.

In order to expand the Wheel Of Mashup, I downloaded the Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Songs Of All Time. I'm almost surprised that the perennially top-rocking Stairway To Heaven only made #39. I'm also surprised I hadn't used any Led Zeppelin in my monster mashup set of source material... huh! Once I did, I discovered one other thing...

 ...it goes disturbingly well with Britney Spears:
