Video killed, then marketed, the book

No essays today.
Barely any words, at all.
Blog of videos.

The Melville House hosts its first annual Moby Awards tonight. (Yes, I know, technically something cannot be “annual” until it happens for two consecutive years; but that’s how they billed it, as the “first annual.” Next year, Melville House should call it the second inaugural Moby Awards.)

The awards recognize the best book trailers. The categories are best low budget/indie, best big budget, best performance by an author, best cameo in a book trailer (if Zach Galifinakis doesn’t win for his performance in Lowboy, I’m calling shenanigans), and least likely trailer to sell the book.

For your viewing pleasure, I have imbedded a few of the trailers.

I Lego N.Y.

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter

The aforementioned Lowboy

Now, two completely unrelated book videos:

Brontë Sisters Power Dolls

Finally, Bill Murray reads poetry to construction workers
