Persian Poofta's

Any theocratic political system like, say, the Islamic Republic of Iran, is sure to create a strange mix of cultish nihilism and dramatic exhibitionism - but Mahmoud Ahmadinejad seems to be leading a nation of summer stock actors hell bent on building an A-Bomb.
Will someone please cancel this show.

The Tradition Continues

There’s a smart young woman on a light blue screen Who comes into my house every night. And she takes all the red, yellow, orange and green And she turns them into black and white. But you tease, and you flirt And you shine all the buttons on your green shirt You can please yourself but somebody’s gonna get it Better cut off all identifying labels Before they put you on the torture table’cause somewhere in the quisling clinic There’s a shorthand typist taking seconds over minutes She’s listening in to the venus line She’s picking out namesI hope none of them are mine But you tease, and you flirt...

Goodbye Mr. Wuhl

Tonight I had the great displeasure of watching Robert Wuhl's new program on HBO titled "Assume the Position" as in "take my idiotic propositions as fact." This is yet another reason to hate the smug pomposity of the HBO network - here a "comedian" edutains a group of NYU film students by teaching an alternate history of the USA (and at times the world). How alternative? How about having the entire classroom chant that "Star Fucking is as American as Apple Pie"? - no, I'm not kidding. You see, Mr. Wuhl believes that "pop culture is history" and that is the root of his problems - he must live a tormented life.

Want more? Read the Interview if you are able.

It is a sick, pathetic use of money and time - but what can you expect from a man who's wife is "to the left of Lenin". [That's a direct quote from Mr. Wuhl]
