Have you ever wondered what it might sound like if you took the dialogue from a film, cut it up into little pieces, and arranged it so that every word of it was put in alphabetical order? I bet the majority of you never once thought that. But someone out there did and turned The Wizard of Oz into a restructured alphabetical work.
I give you Of Oz The Wizard
Essentially, this is just a gigantic YouTube Poop, a video and sound collage of sorts, but for some of us who are sound junkies and fans of the spoken word, this is a little more than that.
Every word has been pulled out of its original context and placed into its proper spot in order, making this an almost two hour long word fest. There is something quite amusing about hearing it laid out this way. Taking a masterpiece, breaking into its smallest pieces and then reconstructing it is sort of an art form onto itself. Look at mosaics, collages and even remixes. They were all something else before getting rebuilt into something new.
Words by themselves only have the most basic of meanings and most times rely on other words arranged around them in a specific way to give a larger meaning. In this video, that’s gone out the window. For some reason, that fascinates me. Maybe I’m weird, I don’t know. Maybe you’ll get a laugh out of this as well. I sure did.
