Another McSweeney's publication with a music CD of songs, most of them specially written for the (progressive) occasion. [jutta, Apr 30 2006]


       I think this is an absolutely fantastic idea! A nice corollary might be to issue ebook text on movie DVDs for movies based on text -- Peter Jackson, are you here, do it for the complete set.   

       I'd suggest some techno upgrades (mp3 player or sound chip built into the book), Leap Frog type passages (click on the Passage and a famous actor reads it), etc.+

       I own something like this - McSweeney's tried it once. They Might Be Giants recorded a piece for each story, and tried to match the length to the story. They recommended pressing the repeat button on your CD player, in case they were off a bit.   

       It's actually quite a strange experience that I recommend trying at least once.

       TMBG whoa I want this book, is this like when you play Pink Floyd's The Wall with the Wizard of OZ?
