PSA: in support of post-punk laptop rap

Here's a new release from MC Lars, who calls himself a "post-punk laptop rap artist."

I found out about MC Lars's work via my day job as educational researcher for Project New Media Literacies. I worked with literary scholar Wyn Kelley and media scholar Henry Jenkins, among others, to develop a teachers' guide for integrating new media literacy practices into the classroom while teaching Moby-Dick. Henry introduced us to an MC Lars song called "ahab," and later, he posted an interview with Lars on his blog.

Here's the "Ahab" video, which makes me so very happy. My favorite part is when Queequeg dances, surrounded by the crew of the Pequod.
