Hooray for Dictionaraoke!
Audio clips from online dictionaries sing the hits of yesterday and today.
The fun of karaoke meets the word power of the dictionary!

http://www.dictionaraoke.org/

Check out the entry for George Lucas - Episode IV:
It's got the whole opening scroll read by the online dictionary voices here.
It's hilarious -- especially towards the end when they "beep beep" like R2-D2!

I also suggest listening to the following:
AC/DC "highway to hell"
John Lee Hooker "Boom Boom Boom"
Sex Pistols "anarchy in the uk"
Nine Inch Nails "closer"
Black Flag "wasted"
Depeche Mode "enjoy the silence"
Smashmouth "All Star"
Queen "bohemian rhapsody" (they almost SING here)
Liz Phair "fuck and run"

And I betya lundergaard is gonna like this one:
Misfits "last caress"

Mood: amused amused
Music: Dictionaraoke

This is right off topic...

Bonnie, did you hang up your shoes at Backwash? I have not seen an update in several months. Perhaps you have too many projects on the table?

funny you should mention that.
I'm actually writing a blog entry right now.
Actually, it's creepy you should mention that...right now. ;-)
