Getting a satirical makeover by UK artist Banksy…I always enjoyed it when the show went down a dark path and depicted characters dealing with their innermost demons (ie. Hiddy Ho, Neighbor)…loving the last half of this.
I don’t want to get into that antiquated philosophical debate about which ones doing the imitating, “art or life?”. That’s best left for you ‘Wilde things’ out there (ba-dum-pshh!). One things for certain, as a fan of both art and life, I can’t help but find this shit MAD funny! HAHAH! The resemblance is uncanny!
If you don’t have HBO then call your cable or satellite provider and get it, like, now! You need HBO to watch East Bound & Down which is the funniest TV show I’ve seen in years. So many laughs. So many quotable lines. So much good, old Redneck humor. I wish real life Rednecks were this funny. Check this show out. Our photo editor is also a huge fan. This is the first season and the sixth episode was the last installment for now, but it’s totally worth watching the reruns On Demand if you’ve already watched them. If you haven’t watched East Bound & Down then you’re blowing it. “If at first you don’t succeed then maybe you suck.”-Kenny Powers
I’ve recently come to grips with the likelihood that I will somehow manage to be late to my own funeral. I can see it now, open casket with a post-it note on the pillow which reads: “BRB, playing Halo2″. That said, consider this, my inaugural blog entry, a minor miracle. Can a brotha get a collective “hallelujah!”? *crickets* Gee thanks, guys
Now that I’m up and typing, I figure what better way to pop my proverbial Contrast blog cherry than by wishing the entire staff and friends-o-family a happy belated (yeah, get used to it) New Year! And by this I mean both the AZN and Haole calendars. Heck, I’m feeling generous, I’ll even include the Mayan calendar for no extra charge! On second thought, scratch that. 2012 is right around the bend. I want you all alive in order to continue reading my blog. Ha!
One last thing- In an effort to smooth things out with the big wigs up at Contrast Corporate, my lawyers recommended I submit my official mayoral pardon for public consumption:
^ In keeping with the theme of my perpetual tardiness, the note is signed by Mayor Frank Fasi. Yes, a couple decades too LATE!
