Teaching YouTube to read
Hoping to persuade YouTube to create a proper literature section for videos instead of lumping them all under the heading of "entertainment," Miracle Jones of the online magazine The Fiction Circus has created a site at Reddit for literary videos of all stripes
Though a fairly new endeavor, the Reddit site already has an intriguing list of videos to choose from that will gouge a nice big hole out of your afternoon. Interviews with Jeanette Winterson, Martin Amis, and George Bataille (not at the same time, of course...) Book trailers, footage of live performances, and a series of video poems written by Bruce Lee (aka Miracle Jones.) There's even a video on machines that print chapbooks.
Those interested in getting involved are tacitly warned at the webpage that, "Politics and religion are extremely boring and might get arbitrarily deleted by an extremely bored moderator." So put away that soapbox. But feel free to post something cool.
