In the video above, you'll be slowly lulled to spend the next seven minutes watching Angie Dickinson hit Lee Marvin. The curator of this clip took a snippet of a film and remixed it into art.
It happens more and more nowadays. Whether you call it sampling, mixing, borrowing, or stealing, you can take what's old and make it new again.
Do that this weekend. Repurpose something, reuse something, or remix something and make it something worthy of keeping, spreading, and creating.
About Weekend Assignments
Here’s the deal: Each Friday, I’ll offer up a different weekend assignment. It won’t be something you blog about or something you change your Facebook status to (you can do either after the fact, of course). It’s something you go and do. It’s homework. It’s designed to stretch you and to offer you something you won’t get from trolling the Internet or watching sports on TV.
Do it if you want to. I promise to make the assignments interesting in order for you to discover something about yourself. Leave a comment about your experience if you’d like. Just try it and see how it feels. I’ll report back on Monday on what I did to hold up my end of the bargain.
