The Medium is (Still) the Message

Thanks to Marc for the pointer to Ubuweb, "a completely independent resource dedicated to all strains of the avant-garde, ethnopoetics, and outsider arts."

Like Marc, I was fascinated by the recording of Marshall McLuhan's appearance on The Dick Cavett Show. But I was even more intrigued by the fact that Truman Capote and Chicago Bears receiver Gayle Sayers sat in on the McLuhan interview. Also cool: Samuel Becektt's Film, DJ Food's "Raiding the 20th Century," and Mairead Byrne's "Some Differences Between Poetry and Stand-Up".

Update: While I'm thinking about it, I just wanted to provide a quick link to the Ourmedia homepage, which I found via one of my recent trackbacks. I could spend days digging around in the archives of Ubuweb and Ourmedia (and probably will), but my guilt about not getting some work done is starting to kick into overdrive.
