I rail against YouTube a lot. I mean, it’s just a pain in the ass for me to watch: I have to wrestle my docked laptop for access to the headphone jack which is a pain, or I have to find the video on my iPhone, which will not play unless the screen is on, which drains my battery. Plus I walk around a lot, with the phone in my pocket, so it defeats the purpose of watching a video. I know I’m in the minority, but honestly, I just don’t get it. Is the golden age of YouTube over? I sure hope so. (The Verge)

Tracey Chevalier’s novel, Burning Bright was inspired by William Blake’s poetry collections Songs of Innocence and Songs of Experience. KimMiE" enjoyed the novel, but she thought the best part was rereading Blake’s poetry collection in the original illustrated version (online at the British Library). "Blake was not only a writer but a printer and an artist. He illuminated his poetry with original etchings that work in conjunction with his lyrics. In a way, I feel sort of cheated that I studied his poetry without the benefit of the experience-enhancing artwork, as the words are only half of what the poet produced." Have you read the poems? Have you read them with the illustrations? (Cannonball Read 11)
