Salem makes Britney Spears sound even more screwy

Well, here's an unexpected remix: Michigan's gnarliest goth-synth-rap trio Salem giving the Britney Spears (as cowritten by Ke$ha) single "Till The World Ends" a vigorous onceover of chopped-and-screwed vocals, a half-time 808 drawl and gain-ravaged synthesizers. This might be essentially what the world sounded like inside Spears' head circa 2007, so pop some popcorn and enjoy the video's night-vision footage of strippers and helicopter strafing runs and think about the world ending, and how dancing won't do much to help.

I didn't realize "entertainment news" now included child porn. This is the most disgusting thing I've ever seen. What's next, LA Times? Are you going to review a snuff film.

I'm finding it hard to enjoy this music , I'm assuming because I'm not dead yet. Yep. I'm pretty sure that's it. When I die, this will seem very logical to listen to.
BTW, I don't call this a remix, I call this audio editing. Kinda like the experimenting I did when I was twelve in Cool Edit Pro.
I had no idea the LA times would have written a story about me if they'd known what I was up to.

Lovin' it!
