An Over-Looked Classic

The above video is a brilliant piece. In a sense it’s already very much of its time but this works as a reminder of the fast moving nature of the interbutts.

For me this video hammers home the fact we live in an era where the “New Media” is now outgrowing the old. You are unlikely to understand most of the references in it, if you’re not part of the internet’s growing subculture, and frankly that’s what I love about it.

    I actually enjoyed this. I wonder that it took this long to get a linguistics professor into rap.

  2. There is hope in this despite its unmet challenges for 2012–it show us we were right all along, and as you point out, have only grown stronger.
