Early in Obama’s first administration I did dozens and dozens and dozens of Hollywood- themed agitprop with Obama as the star. Here are a few examples:
The Village Voice’s writer on pop culture (whose sole qualification is that he enjoys men running it up his chocolate starfish) Michael Musto, wrote a review of them, calling them “trite, amateur, unfunny, predictable, racist,” and any other word you can think of that was meant to dismiss them wholesale. The “amateur” comment particularly amused me because I once did some artwork for Michael Musto when he needed invitations to a Halloween party he was throwing at The Limelight in Manhattan. He thought the invite was fantastic, and not at all “amateur.”
It’s 2015. Want to see examples of sheer brilliance? (To be fair, Michael Musto didn’t review the following, but I can guaranfriggintee you he wouldn’t go out of his way to give a negative review of these-)
Dangerous minds says:
Reality scares the absolute living sh!t out of me every day, and I can’t go to the lobby for a drink or hit a pause button when the intensity gets ramped up. And few things in reality currently scare me into near-paralysis like the idea of President Donald Trump.
”I’m always a sucker for a ‘shop contest… this one reaches some dizzying heights of prime Internet smartassery.
“Dizzying heights.” “Prime internet smartassery.”
Whoa. I guess I’m in the wrong camp.
It’s not hard to be a star (fish?) when you’re on the left, is it?
That’s the side where Obama gets a peace prize and Gwyneth Platrow wins a best actress award.
