Of Oz the Wizard
Matt Bucy took the film The Wizard of Oz completely apart and rearranged it in alphabetical order. That sounds nonsensical, and it is, but there’s a lot to be enjoyed here for those of us (all of us, really) who already know the story.
You get a sense of which words are repeated the most. It starts off with all the screams of “Aaah!” Wordless sequences follow the last word said, and all of Toto’s lines are together because he only says “Arf!” The sequence for “dead,” starting about 19:40, is priceless. Many of the strings of words are quite musical, like “ding” and “ha” and of course, “rainbow.” (via Metafilter)
