Origins of this content
This texteo, dialectically holding two videos—my student's assignment and my video interpretation (transcribed as text below)—was developed in 2008 from my attempt to write clear, systematic lessons from the output and experiences of LFYT 2007. In this texteo I respond to Indievintageclassic's midterm project video for LFYT 2007.
According to The Onion: "In a statement made to reporters earlier this afternoon, local idiot Brandon Mylenek, 26, announced that at approximately 2:30 a.m. tonight, he plans to post an idiotic comment beneath a video on an Internet website ... Mylenek, who rarely in his life has been capable of formulating an idea or opinion worth the amount of oxygen required to express it, went on to guarantee that the text of his comment would be misspelled to the point of incomprehension, that it would defy the laws of both logic and grammar, and that it would allege that several elements of the video are homosexual in nature."[cit]

Digital rhetoric, as defined by fellow-blogger and UCSD professor Elizabeth Losh, "is not one but two literacies: a literacy of print and a literacy of the screen. In addition, work in one medium is used to enhance learning in the other."[cit]

There has been debate in documentary studies/production about the effective use of the talking head. While it is most common to advise avoiding too much of a person talking in medium-shot, radical traditions committed to oral history and self-expression of disenfranchised communities have advocated the use of this style.

I summarize: "Maia plays with the destablization of the aural/visual binary by using her well-written words in a self-consciously bad video (it rolls too fast and has no images) to illustrate the decline of the word on YouTube, alongside a continued reliance on and need for words, in long-form, within higher education."
