Palindrome: The Best Site EVER

Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your tax-deductible financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

Remember when refrigerator magnet poetry was en vogue? Well, this site is kind of like that but a zillion times better -- especially if you're a fan (or foe?) of VP candidate Sarah Palin.

We got a heads-up e-mail from Culver City's Jordan Kolasinski, the creator of this new site: Palindrome. He writes, "I created this site where you can take actual words Sarah Palin has said, re-arrange and re-contextualize them as you'd like, then HEAR her speak your PALINdrome back. You can also save yours and send it around."

Basically, he's uploaded three of Palin's speeches and interviews and uploaded the words as separate soundbytes so you can create your own speech. Here's our quick little attempt at a Palindrome.

Trust us. This site's addictive. But maybe he should think about calling it Palin-drone.

(The site's a bit slow because of heavy traffic, but he's working on fixing that issue, so be patient.)
