A Question Deserving an Answer
Jumping the Mutt

Funky Good Ripoff

Now this is interesting... there's a lot happening here.

What are we going to do with you, Kutiman/Ophir Kutiel?

You're the real deal. This mash-up mix reveals both your musical and visual talents. I don't know how deep you roll, but if you did this by yourself... if that's even possible... color me impressed.

I suppose we'll have to give you a pass on this first one. That seems to be how things work, but those days are gone. You're going to be rich and famous. Just like the first rap artists that shamelessly sampled/pirated James Brown (and profited from his work) it's time for you to go legit.

It's going to be hard. Now you'll have to track down your "contributors". Get releases. Pay royalties, that kind of stuff, but it's the right thing to do.

Don't get all Fairey on us, where you've got 14 people working for you and big corporate clients, yet claim "fair use". If you go that route, I won't be able to enjoy your work anymore.

That's all I ask.
