I heart Stephen Fry – On Language

I love Stephen Fry – love his ways with words, his easy erudition, his vibrant way of speaking.  and so does Matt Rogers, who created a “kinetic typography animation” from a portion of one of Fry’s essays on language and usage.

to hear the rest of the essay, mousey over to the audio/video section of stephenfry.com: Stephen Fry on language

  1. Brilliant. I just love that kinetic tyopgraphy stuff. The first and best one I’ve seen is a Pulp Fiction one by Samuel Jackson found here.

  2. There’s a bunch of them around. Done well, they really add so much more to the words. Some really terrific examples out there, too bad I can’t recall a one. LOL

    I think Fry would wholeheartedly agree that these uses of moving words and audio could be a whole new chapter in the usage of language.
