Sorry friends and readers, I still have to wait on lots of news. Hopefully by weeks end things will be set and I can start posting about it.

In the mean time, I’m diving very deep into mash-ups — media were multiple "tracks" (typically audio, but also video) are juxtaposed against each other. Take for example DJ Mei Lwun’s Sweet Home Country Grammar — Lynyrd Skynyrd’s Sweet home Alabama meets Nelly’s Country Grammar. This also ties into a lot of the content that’s popping up on YouTube and on MySpace. In particular I’m thinking about this in terms of new forms of "literacy" and "writing," as well as their roles as emblems of identity. More to come on all of that.
