Mailer And McLuhan (Google Video)

Norman Mailer died recently and there is a good bit about him in the press as a result. One of the most interesting interviews I have seen of him is this Canadian documentary of him with Marshall McLuhan. If you are not that familiar with either Mailer or McLuhan you probably should be and this is an interesting introduction to their thinking. The language they use can be a bit difficult to follow at times but it is worth the concentrated effort it takes to sit all the way through it.

(Thanks to Snarkmarket for finding it!)
