In this youtube, a young man sits down at a table and begins singing backwards (I won't spoiler the video for you by naming the song), while undertaking a variety of time-bound activities -- popping balloons, knocking over a Jenga tower, pouring liquid, etc. At the halfway mark, the video rolls again, in reverse, with all those time-bound effects doing that cool liquid-pouring up/balloons unpopping thing, ostensibly to prove that he really did learn the song backwards, but really, I suspect, because it makes for a great visual accompaniment to this chap doing his backwards singing thing, which he does very well.

I write books. My latest is a YA science fiction novel called Homeland (it's the sequel to Little Brother). More books: Rapture of the Nerds (a novel, with Charlie Stross); With a Little Help (short stories); and The Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow (novella and nonfic). I speak all over the place and I tweet and tumble, too.
