Bas Jan Ader
Ubuweb has just added six rare Bas Jan Ader films, including Fall (I and II) and I'm To Sad To Tell You. Check 'em out now before Patrick Painter Editions (who manages Jan Ader's estate and has produced the videos in editions of 3 to sell to institutions) shuts it down.
Update: Turns out these videos are legitimately online - www.basjanader.com has posted them. Check out the blog section , where earlier this month an image of Ader's recently discovered boyhood sailing permit was posted, complete with a note written by his mother, reading "Mrs. J.A. Ader Appels gives her son, Bastiaan Johan Christiaan Ader permission to go to sea."
