Once upon a midnight dreary, while I posted, weak and weary,(Edgar don’t roll too fast in your grave.)
Over many a quaint and curious volume of youtube screening,
While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tweeting,
As of some one rudely pleading, pleading on my smartphone screaming.
It would be fascinating to have Edgar Allan Poe join the Friday Fragment meme. Well that’s not going to happen but you can join. It’s central location is at Mrs. 4444’s blog. Leave your ravens at home please.
How do you feel about old poems or songs being repurposed and recycled for today’s social media world? For example:
“I Will Follow Him” could be a twitter theme song.
“I Want You To Want Me” by Cheap Trick could be slightly modified for our modern social media world.
Didn’t I, didn’t I, didn’t I, see you postin
Oh, didn’t I, didn’t I, didn’t I, see you postin
I want you to comment me.
I need you to retweet me.
A friend sent me this bible cartoon. Now putting the bible into cartoon format (I've seen some parts of it done for children) is another example of repurposing.
Bump the app before you bump in bed
from the developers’ site:
“This feature enables users of the app to bump two phones together to instantly see how they are related. The “Incest Prevention” is a fun feature that the user can enable through the options menu which will notify him with both text and sound if the one he bumps with someone who is too related to him.”
Remember what the Beatles told us. “Your inside is out when your outside is in. Your outside is in when your inside is out.” So C'mon.
