A tribute to and a lament for Marshall McLuhan.  Five days a week, Tuesday through Saturday, I present one of McLuhan’s observations and talk about its relevance today.  300 ideas. 300 days.  300 posts.

I’ll win your heart singing!

Marshall McLuhan (September 1979, age 68).  Song!

With this damn stroke going on, as you know I can’t speak, read or write. [Thank God for the magic of this blog. ] But you know, every now and then i just feel like singing.  And I do.

Michael Hinton (April 6, 2010, age 57).  Song!

Marshall McLuhan apparently did sing after he had his stroke.  Once I’ve read he sang an old Presbyterian hymn.  I’m not sure it was well received.

Here’s a short piece of music this blog has commissioned as a tribute to Marshall McLuhan.  The piece is called Lament for Marshall McLuhan and is by a young composer:  Sebastien Joseph.

What do you think?
