If you want something done right you've got to DIY. That's the theory behind the doggedly democratic online t-shirt purveyors Threadless.com, who turn your clever ideas into cool coverings with the help of a voting system that hands the power back to the people and their wallets. Now they're branching out into the music game and taking their populist approach with them, as they give fans the chance to submit questions to their favorite artists to be answered in an exclusive Threadless video interview. As if playing Katie Couric to some of today's fastest rising acts wasn’t enough, they're throwing in $25 each to the five incisive souls whose questions are chosen for the interview.
Up for the grilling this round: mashup torchbearer Girl Talk. Slapping together sound collages across the country on his Feed The Animals tour, Gregg Gillis tests the limits of sonic bedfellows and intellectual property with his genre-hopping sets. Now it's your turn to dissect the sample surgeon's inner workings. Send your inquiry along with contact information (name, email, phone, address) to asktheartist@ARTISTdirect.com for the chance to get your question answered and pocket some cash. Then, make sure to check back to ARTISTdirect next week for the exclusive video of Girl Talk giving you the answers you asked for.
