Kenneth Goldsmith sings works by media theorists

My professor for my Imagining Language class sent us a link to a site by an NYC radio DJ named Kenneth Goldsmith who has recorded himself singing the works of media theorists over music, and I thought it was just too hilarious not to share. If the guy's voice wasn't so awful I could probably learn something from him -- oh, and if I hadn't already taken the time to read most of these works.

I particularly enjoyed his rendition of Benjamin's "Unpacking My Library" and, of course, his musical version of Baudrillard's critique of Disneyland.

I'm not quite sure if my professor thinks this is brilliant or just plain ridiculous. I guess I'll find out in lecture tomorrow.
