Sometimes It Is Like Being In A Woody Allen Movie

Last night after leaving the Park Ave Armory where I had seen the multimedia extravaganza Adam Curtis v. Massive Attack, I overheard a young man say to his lady friend "Malcolm, not him...Malcolm McLaren. That's his name. You know, the whole 'medium is the message' thing..." 

I fought the urge to say "it's Marshall McLuhan, you stupid fuck." More importantly, I wished I could pull Professor McLuhan out from behind a nearby tree to say "I heard what you were saying. You know nothing of my work...or even my name for that matter."

Maybe he actually meant Malcolm know that whole Droogie, Yarbles and Horrowshow is the Message thing? Nu?

I'm a little jealous. I love Massive Attack. I know that's not the point, but still.
