Next Meeting 4/7: Copyright in the Digital Age

5 Apr

Hey Undergrounders! Time to finally reunite for another meeting. And with some recent complaints about “copyright” plaguing our humble club, we figured that discussing the nature of copyright and the internet was a good topic to cover.

This is a long article, but if you want to familiarize yourself with the topic, it’s pretty good.

The Challenge of Copyright in the Digital Age

Already a lot of people have told us that they won’t be able to attend, so we expect a low attendance tonight. But the discussion should be really interesting, so please come out and invite your friends. See you there!

 

Midterm Blues

19 Oct

Since it’s midterms at UF and our football team is getting us super depressed, we in the Media Underground thought you could use a break from the harsh realities of life and your constant effort to champion alternative media.  So, here are some random youtube clips and memes (which are kinda alternative, if you think about it) to get your mind off the mountains of work still in front of you.

The Toilet Paper Debate

Super Awesome video by Brad Neely about Washington (but it gets really awkward at the end)

Maybe the worst movie idea we’ve ever seen: The Human Centipede

Enjoy, Undergrounders!  And stay strong!  See you all Thursday!
