Son Of Strelka, Son Of God

We here at ilictronix are no strangers to cutting things into teeny tiny pieces and then using those pieces to create something bigger, just look at Pogo for example. But what I bring you today takes that concept and does something truly amazing with it.

I saw this a few weeks ago, over on the Something Awful Forums and have waited anxiously for it to be completed. Son Of Strelka is an audio story set to music. Nothing unusual about that right? Well, the bloke who made it, Dan Warren, dissected the audio version of Barack Obama's autobiography and has meticulously been re-arranging it for the past four years to make this tale of creation set to music. I was skeptical at first, expecting not much in the way of quality but I was wrong. The whole thing flows amazingly well to say it's formed from fragments of sentences from throughout the book. So, in essence what you are left with is a 30 minute short story narrated by Barack Obama himself. And with that: Enjoy the first four chapters of Son Of Strelka, Son Of God

If you want to read more about Son Of Strelka or just simply hear the rest of the story; find the original thread with download and torrent links provided by Dan Warren himself here: Here and animations of the first two chapters here and here.
