Video Activism

Pretty much everybody has seen this video already, and I wanted to post it a while ago, because I was pretty certain Alanis was doing something smart here. I couldn't, however, quite put my finger on it.

Now Patrick Goldstein has. You can read what he has to say here.

I like the political angle he ends up taking, but I'm wondering too how all of this could be applied to literature, to art. As of now, I still haven't figured out anything concrete. But it's there, waiting to be discovered, I think.

I'd lost my teenage wonder of Alanis, but this video makes me like her again.

I know what you mean, Caroline.

Though, you know, I wasn't quite a teenager when Alanis came around.
