grind poetry and deliver directions
I hardly ever use the sat-nav on my phone but recently
a visit to Rotterdam I had to find an address at midnight
from the central station, via a bus then a 15 minute
walk, so I sparked it into action.
The system worked fine, but there's a great opportunity
here for a much more inventive
narration of the journey.
Instead of bland directions delivered in a mechanical
monotone, I want someone like (my favourite) poet John
Cooper-Clarke or the late William Burroughs to deliver
directions, interspersed and punctuated with
appropriate rhyming slang;
swearing; and various other poetic colourful invective.
