Because it’s increasingly true that you can indeed find anything on the Internet, here’s a brand-new way for Morrissey fans to kill an hour: by listening to a robot recite the former Smiths frontman’s full Wikipedia entry out loud over the course of 59 minutes and 54 seconds.
Yes, this is obviously a tool to help bring Wikipedia to those who can’t see or read — it’s part of a huge series of such videos posted to YouTube by wikispeak10 — but there’s just something oddly wonderful about hearing a disembodied, computer-assembled voice telling you about that time Moz “took up boxing and was accompanied everywhere by a skinhead named Jake.”
