Art They Don't Want You To See. Posted on 11/09/2002.

It turns out I'm late to this blog party, but Illegal Art is new to me. A collection of video, audio, and pictorial art that uses copyright materials. For me, I'm excited I can finally see Superstar: The Karen Carpenter Story.

Everyone should see Superstar. It's one of the 10 best movies of all time.

I highly recommend Brian Springer's Spin video. Critical thinking for today's Smart Mobs.
