Daily DigVid Review: Me me me me me
Can’t travel? Not to worry. Antenna Audio has put its Discovery Audio productions and CityGuides on iTunes, so you can visit Manhattan’s Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Guggenheim and the Rijksmuseum without ever setting foot outside your door. Antenna Audio’s CityGuides – a new produt for the company – go a little broader than that, offering tours of New York, San Francisco, South Beach, London, Paris, Rome and other cities. Listeners can either enjoy the tours at home, imagining that they are gazing at the Eiffel Tower, or take the audio tour guides on the road.
If a best-selling author like Paulo Coelho is addicted to MySpace, I don’t need to feel so ashamed about having my own profile on the site (although I understand everyone has moved over to Facebook these days, so maybe I should be more ashamed about my unwillingness to evolve with the times). Coelho is collaborating with the News Corp.-owned social network to create a user-generated movie of his book The Witch of Portobello, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Coelho fans are being asked to create videos that focus on one of the book’s 15 characters. The winning submissions will be fashioned into a mash-up. Those same fans also can submit songs, with up to 16 planned for the UG-video’s soundtrack. How’s that for being a man of the people? Maybe Coelho will win the Webby next time around.
