Also in recent issues Wire (the april issue) and SPIN (not sure) covered the
all too amusing project: Dictionaraoroke


 From Wire:
"The wonderful Dictionaraoke website, set up by the
Negativland-loving New Media collective Snuggles,
offers a collection of MIDI versions of records like
Van Halen's "Jump", Joy Division's "Closer" and Elton
John's "Don't Go Breaking My Heart" with vocals by
talking dictionaries like Encarta. Right there beside
them is a version of Culturside's "The Heart Of Rock
'N' Roll Is The Profit", complete with an anti-cloning
rant at the end by the digitized lead singers."
