Gate Raped by the TSA: News in Song
At the beginning of this year, I launched www.newsinsong.com. The idea for the site was to be a quick, aggregate news source for the ADD generation. Through one quick video/song each week, you'd be caught up with the big headlines from around the world - in a musically entertaining way.
It made more sense via description than it actually panned out. It was hard to create a single song while tying in 7 or more news stories each week - especially trying to do so in a humorous way. Not to mention it was incredibly laborious assembling the video clips. So the last few months, I've been trying something else. Take one news story. As it happens. And put together a quick song about it. Focusing on a single story lets me poke fun at it from a few different angles, while hopefully revealing some actual insights at the same time. Very similar to what I did for www.whyeverypresidentsucked.com.
This was yesterday's song. Let me know if you like this new approach. And if so, you can catch up and follow upcoming news story-songs at www.newsinsong.com.
