subterranean homesick news

At last weekend's BBC-sponsored Mashed 08 (a festival held at Alexandra Palance that allows hackers to mash data streams for various ends), Team Bob came up with a mash-up in the spirit of the mashed_prophet that mixed live subtitles from BBC News with Bob Dylan's video for Subterranean Homesick Blues "in a little spoof called 'Subterranean Homesick News'".

The Guardian may have called the the mashup "pointless but fun", but they're only things with "future application" eyes. The mashed_prophet sees the deeper subversive point as well as the fun.

Like. Would like to know how to do this myself i.e. insert my own words. Not especially tech-savvy tho...

Great idea!
