Youtube Connection 21

December 25, 2009

First of all, I wanted to wish everyone a MERRY CHRISTMAS! 🙂 Usually, Youtube Connection is a Thursday feature, but since I chose a Christmas-themed book/video, I decided to move it to Friday, to coincide with Christmas.

This week’s book is Dr. Seuss’s classic How the Grinch Stole Christmas. This week’s video is How the Grinch Stole Christmas (surprised, right?) narrated by Walter Matthau. Enjoy!

Every Thursday, I will post a video (or more) that is somehow connected to a book I’ve read. I’ve also included a Mr. Linky widget at the bottom for anyone that’s interested in posting videos of their own.

This week’s novel is The Boyfriend Game by Stephie Davis. In the novel, Trisha finds herself in a dilemma when she develops a crush on Graham. Their relationship is based on the fact that they would much rather play soccer than flirt with the opposite sex. I chose the song “It’s Tough Have a Crush” by OK Go. Enjoy!

In celebration for Thanksgiving, this week’s book is A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving. For the video, I have a part of A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving. Bet you didn’t see that one coming. 😛 Enjoy!

This week is a little different from what I normally do. I started looking for a video to correlate with Sylvia Plath’s The Bell Jar. I stumbled upon a video of Sylvia Plath reading her poem, “Daddy.” The old film quality gives the video an eerie quality (and also makes me wish I had found it before Halloween, but that’s beside the point) that I had to share. Anyway, enjoy!

This week’s book is one you have all heard of: Frankenstein by Mary Shelley. The video I decided to show is the 1994 movie version of Frankenstein. Admittedly, I mostly chose this video because it has Helena Bonham Carter in it. 😛 Enjoy!

This week’s book is Second Skin by Jessica Wollman. The novel deals with high school popularity, so I chose to show a scene from a movie about high school popularity. The movie is Mean Girls, which most of you have probably seen. Enjoy!
