Video Half-Day Friday: Werner Herzog

Dear fellow Girl With The Dragon Tattoo readers,

The first half of the book will be so much better if you read it to yourself like Werner Herzog.  Then you can get to the good parts (hint: it picks up at p. 297).

On a similar note, these versions of children’s books, read in “Herzog” ‘s voice, are easily the funniest kids-lit parodies I’ve ever seen.  I’ve been meaning to post them forever, but it’s no big, because they just keep getting better with age.

“They smiled at the good, and frowned at the bad, but being children, their concept of good and evil was not fully formed, and it would shock a grown person how much grey area existed along their moral compass.  In truth, children are next door to sociopaths.”

“George is lured out of hiding by the yellow hat, an alien trinket of unimaginable cultural significance.  George quickly learns a hard lesson about desire, as his adventure with the hat leads to his immediate captivity.”

“Like gangsters in an American movie, they have dug their own grave.  Mike seems doomed by his own hubris, and he is doomed to Maryanne as well.  She is like a beaten dog who still loves her master, because he is all she has ever known.”

“We search for Waldo, but what is Waldo searching for? Perhaps he is not searching at all, but running from something.  Does this man even want to be found?  Or in searching for Waldo, did we really find ourselves?  No, probably not.”
