Do you know about UbuWeb? Here's an explanation from their own website: "UbuWeb was founded in November of 1996, initially as a repository for visual, concrete and, later, sound poetry. Over the years, UbuWeb has embraced all forms of the avant-garde and beyond. Its parameters continue to expand in all directions."

And here's their pricing policy: "Nothing is for sale on UbuWeb. It's all free. We know it's a hard idea to get used to, but there's no lush gift shop waiting for you at the end of this museum."

One of the great things you can do at UbuWeb is download pdfs of poetry books by writers such as Juliana Spahr, Christian Bok, Aaron Kunin, Ron Silliman, and Rosemarie Waldrop.

And here are their podcasts. And their ethnopoetics page. You can download films and videos too. And their homepage listing all their resources.

Warning: Don't link to UbuWeb unless you have a lot of free time, and I mean immediately free time.

Great collection of stuff! I've already watched a fragment of a 20-year-old documentary about J.G. Ballard. Now if I could just find time away from work to do some more rummaging around in their extensive offerings.

I warned you. It's a compelling site.
