Today’s thing you can’t unsee

January 9th, 2009 by · 26 Comments

Kids these days! Playing the damn xbox instead of enjoying the classics!  How can we get them more interested in the arts, especially Poetry, the Urkel of the arts?

Was your suggestion TAKING PHOTOS OF DEAD POETS AND ANIMATING THEM TO MAKE IT LOOK LIKE THEY ARE READING THEIR POEMS FROM BEYOND THE GRAVE?!?!

Example:  Here is poet Robert Frost reading his oft quoted-in-high-school-yearbooks poem “The Road Not Taken’

 

Line the kids up!  Youtube user poetryanimations has over 200 videos just like that!
