I do love me some girl talk, and I’m not just talking about the kind I overhear from the ladies’ powder room. I’m also a fan of Girl Talk, the mash-up artist from my hometown of Pittsburgh who not only managed to release an album this year, Feed The Animals, with hundreds and hundreds of uncleared samples (and he wasn’t sued once!), but also landed himself a Microsoft PC ad.
His album (the one I was talking about in the previous paragraph) is also in contention for my Top 10 Albums of the year.
All in all, Girl Talk has had himself a successful 2008, however Carles, from the blog Hipster Runoff has done some splendid investigative work and recently uncovered the origin of Girl Talk’s musical moniker.
Warning, what you’re about to read may shock you. Click HERE to see where Girl Talk allegedly got the inspiration for his stage name.
