Pieces of a Wunderkammer

  I found Juliet Davis’s Pieces of Herself through the Electronic Literature Collection (volume 3) I selected it because it reminded me of Shelly Jackson’s My Body a Wunderkammer (MBW).

People of all kinds were giving their favorite songs a little flair using an array of “movie maker” tricks so they could watch the lyrics come a live before their eyes. It was not until yesterday though that…

The YouTube Collection

The first thing that I did on April Fool’s Day was to check all of my favorite websites for special features. YouTube was my first checkpoint and I was not disappointed.
