Peanut butter, meet chocolate.

If I had the necessary software to make mashups, I might never leave the basement.

(This assumes that Real-Life Me ever actually does leave the basement, which most of you do not know for a fact. Well, OK, my man Jim Bartlett recently discovered that I will put on pants and leave the house for a good cause.)

I’m busy, and rather amused, tonight making mental mashups from the following list: Noteworthy albums that happen to share a release date.

(All dates sourced from Wikipedia, so they could be complete nonsense.)

See if you can imagine what some of these would sound like for yourself if cut-and-pasted together.
