Music to My Ears XXXVII

Thanks to Jim Munroe's delightful DIY video CD-ROM zine Novel Amusements #3 and Jon Sasaki's clever submission "Mixed Tape," I've been introduced to Dictionaraoke. Dictionaraoke is a Web site collecting MP3 files made by combining online dictionaries' computer-generated voices with karaoke music for hits of yesterday and today. I've never heard such a dry, passionless rendition of the Beastie Boys' "Girls." Ball2000's version of Kiss' "Rock and Roll All Nite" alternates male and female computer vocals, making for an energetic, giggle-ridden number. The chorus cracks me up. Awesome... I'll be spending some time here.
