Downsizing

by @ 9:44 am. Filed under Technology

There is a great article in this month’s “Wired” magazine. The theme of the article is downsizing in today’s world…the author, Nancy Miller gives examples: using iTunes allows us to listen to our favorite “single song” instead of “albums”; For $1.99 Video iPods offer one recent epispode of our favorite TV show; Miller even cites the iincredibly popular “shrunken Oreo” (Mini Oreo) cookie…I found this all interesting, but what struck me the most was an insert in the article written by Steven Leckart. Leckart jokingly lists (I think he was joking) some major movie titles with a “downsized” summary. Here is a sample…I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Title…………………………………Summary

The Empire Strikes Back ………Vader is Luke’s dad
Citizen Kane……………………….Rosebud was his sled
Psycho………………………………Norman is the killer
The Sixth Sense…………………..The Doc is dead too
Planet of the Apes……………….Earth, in the future
Gone with the Wind……………..He dumps her
Romeo and Juliet………………..Double suicide
Old Yeller………………………….Dog is put down
Moby Dick ………………………..Whales destroys boat lives
Jaws…………………………………Shark desstroys boat dies

Thanks to Wired magazine
