Mashup Has Peanuts Gang Playing Rush’s ‘2112’

By FYI Staff

If you've got 20 minutes to spare, and like Charlie Brown and Rush, you will want to watch this impressively well-executed combination of cartoon clips set to music produced by Terry Brown and performed by Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson and Neil Peart.


YouTube user Garren Lazar, has edited clips of Charlie Brown and the gang singing along to “Jet Airliner” by Steve Miller, “Freebird” by Lynyrd Skynyrd, and the entirety of Pink Floyd’s The Wall, but he says that parodying Rush’s classic 1976 album 2112 was challenging.

Posting on YouTube, Lazar states: “Ladies and gentlemen, 2112 is officially the most difficult Peanuts Parody I've ever made to date. I know what you're thinking; ‘you did the entire The Wall album by Pink Floyd! How is this harder?’ It's not about the length that makes doing a parody of a song a challenge, it's the aesthetics of a song. 2112 was not all about syncing, I had to incorporate other skills other than Final Cut Pro; such as Adobe Photoshop, and other tools to make this video possible. But, in the end, it was worth it, and I hope that you all enjoy it!”

Live Nation Antitrust Lawsuit Expected to Be Filed by DOJ on Thursday

The lawsuit is expected to charge that the concert giant has a monopoly on event ticketing through Ticketmaster.

A Department of Justice lawsuit against Live Nation for violating U.S. antitrust laws is imminent and could be filed as soon as Thursday (May 23), a source with knowledge of the DOJ’s plans tells Billboard.

The lawsuit is rumored to charge that Live Nation has a monopoly on event ticketing through Ticketmaster and that it illegally uses its monopoly power to grow its business and stifle competition. The DOJ has been investigating Live Nation for more than two years. With that investigation now wrapped, company president Joe Berchtold recently said he was hopeful his company would avoid a legal showdown with the DOJ’s top antitrust lawyer, Jonathan Kanter.
