I’ve really been enjoying fiddling with web pages, so I decided to take X-Ray Goggles to YouTube for this next assignment. As a Lord of the Rings enthusiast, I decided to alter the video where Eowyn famously declares “I am no man” before stabbing the Witch King. I changed the description to “Classic tale of boy meets girl” to imply a romance. In a similar fashion I edited the name of the channel that posted the video. I also altered most of the LOTR related suggested videos on the righthand side to have a pro-Sauron bent. For example, I described the Mouth of Sauron as a diplomat who was brutally murdered. This was another fun exercise demonstrating the power of words and context, in addition to the ease with which the web can be altered. The full site can be seen here.
