Dylan does Dr. Seuss

Ridiculous but fun, it's two of my favorites together, just like peanut butter and chocolate. Some insane wag has decided to combine 60's electric Dylan with Dr. Seuss, creating the Dylan Hears A Who site. Now you can enjoy classics like "The Things You Can Think," "Miss Gertrude McFuzz" and the classic "Green Eggs and Ham" done in the style of Highway 61 Revisited and Blonde on Blonde. As a bonus, they also concoct a classic Columbia Records album cover and a looped picture of the imaginary record being played on a turntable. And it's just in time for the 50th anniversary of The Cat in the Hat.

Dylan might get a laugh out of it and his label doesn't really have anything to nail these pranksters on since they didn't cover any of his tunes per se but the Seuss estate might not be as understanding (since they probably didn't license it despite the copyright notice on the page) so check it out now while it lasts. It's as least as fun as Modern Times, which I thought was pretty overrated itself.

One warning: even when you're not playing the music, the webpage loops scratchy vinyl surface noise that can drive you crazy if you leave it on the background and wonder what's coming out of your digitial speakers.
