The Longest Now

Eminem carves up Bush

So everyone’s heard about the video Eminem made for the upcoming election, right? Mosh. It’s a bit about portable mosh pits for expressing anger,
a bit about getting out the vote, and a bit about sticking it to the president really, really hard. In one five minute video, Slim Shady manages to:

  • reprise the scene from Fahrenheit 9/11 where Bush sits reading to elementary school kids while the second plane flies toward the Twin Towers;
  • suggest that Bush knew about the attacks
  • suggest that Cheney et al are behind the Bin Laden videos
  • encourage a recalled soldier to rebel against the administration (yelling ‘Fuck Bush!’ and putting a combat knife through Bush’s head in effigy) and against his fellow soldiers (fooling them long enough to let protestors turn a firehose on them)
  • encourage massive civil disobedience, including storming government buildings — though in the end, ha ha, it turns out to be in order to vote in an orderly line.

I think I’ll wear my hooded sweatshirt when I go vote tomorrow.

The new video from JibJab is supposed to also be good: Good to be in DC. I haven’t watched it yet.

not quite as good as videos past; a bit too hokey. the eminem video, in contrast, is unlike any video to come before it…
