    April 11, 2010 8:06 pm is theater for the mind, so watch the animation of said classics. Get ready to laugh when you see the 1850’s Carl Spitzweg painting “The Bookworm.” It seems that The Book worm of mistakenly replaced his fine reading library with an Apple I Pad. Since the Bookworm was clueless about technology he gallantly replaced his bountiful library with I Pods totally misunderstanding exactly what an I Pod can really accomplish. In this case the lending library turned out to be very, very expensive to The Bookworm as his friends suddenly developed an all encompassing need to read the classics on a daily basis. Just watch as the old master’s library becomes digitized. The books really get replaced by I Pods right in front of your unbelieving eyes. Sites like this represent a new type of art online and speaking of art online go check out sell great artwork online .and get a of the real classic of your own.
