Samuel Beckett hovers over Ubu.com.
Do social networking sites distract you from your workday? Are you frustrated when friends aren’t tweeting constantly, filling you in on the mundane details of their lives?
My friends, I give you the greatest indulgence on the World Wide Web: Ubu.com, a site for rare visual art, audio files, films short and long, interviews — everything.
In the past hour, I have found an audio file of people speaking in tongues, an interview with Salvador Dali (in French), video art from Pipilotti Rist and Patti Smith reading a poem for Jim Morrison. Tell your boss it’s my fault.
