New Media

Here's something new. Some mad genius is currently at work tweeting Top Gun, in its entirety, frame by frame, in all of its homoerotic glory.

Every half hour, another still appears on the twitter feed of 555 µHz. It is up to the bar scene right now. 

This is one of the strangest and most wonderful re-purposing of a film I have seen in a very long time. It is a super slow-motion screening. It is non-performance art.

It includes the subtitles in the screen-captures for those of us who haven't memorized absolutely all of the dialog from the movie.

Somehow this novel treatment of the too familiar manages to create something of interest out of nothing. 


  1. Fyi, it is still at the bar scene. But there have also been a number of copyright takedown notices. Is a lawyer somewhere sending out notices frame by frame too?

  2. That didn't last long. It didn't make it through the bar scene before the account was suspended. Another new art form strangled by copyright.
