The Lexicon of They Might Be Giants
Today I (briefly) met @scottmccloud; listened to him speak about comics, communication, and design; and got him to sign my copy of Understanding Comics.
I am inspired.
I’ve been playing around with David Mackenzie's They Might Be Giants lyrics data set. This visualization enumerates every unique word that appears in They Might Be Giants’ songs, in chronological order—at least according to how those lyrics are transcribed on tmbw.net (meaning that there’s no fancy stemming of “p-p-puppet” to “puppet”). The lexicon is presented in the style of film credits.
Note the speed controls to the right. The default speed (a speed at which I find reading comfortable) takes about 30 minutes to get through the entire list, so you may want to speed it up.
