News: "Austen on YouTube"

For those who enjoy Jane Austen movies, Linda forwarded me a New York Times article on a new trend that might tickle your fancy:
Austen on YouTube
Published: July 29, 2007

"A look at a few clever YouTube videos that capture Jane Austen in a
contemporary way."
If you don't have time to read the article, below are two of the YouTube videos mentioned in the article that I thought were good, silly fun. Each video is roughly 4 minutes long and consists of Jane Austen movies outtakes edited to current pop music hits. The editing is done by amateurs so it's a tad rough, but the enthusiasm shines though and the song choices are amusingly apt.

"Jane Austen Ladies 'Maneater'"

"Regency Men Bringing Sexy Back"
