I knew, if I
waited - that this "Journey Series" would be a 10
parter. :) Just took 2 years.
freaking tap-dancing christ how cool was
that shit. Not 2 seconds after Obama
mentioned McCain singing my song (the full
chronology in the video to the right) did
my cell go off with multiple calls - and
the winner of first to whip out my digits
is Jessica by about 20 seconds. :) Cousin
Jimmy was a close second.
to rewatch this - it's absolutely a "pinch
In fact it
actually did take me a second because it's all been
spread out over years. My first reaction was - "duh,
we all remember Mccain singing that..." because it's
certainly part of MY past. But then you wait a
couple moments and remember - oh yeah, I created that
piece of household vernacular with my cartoon that got
so popular in a year that a certain candidate alluded
to it to his own detriment (or
so I thought at the
moment which ended up getting even more press for
McCain now ends up being referenced by Obama during a
freaking presidential debate and literally means I am
cemented not only into pop-culture history, but
political history. It's a tiny flag, no doubt - but
it's my flag, it's my piece and I couldn't be more
proud and excited if I tried. Holy Balls.
Not to get all
"See, your ideas can become anything if you put your
mind to it" - but you have to realize how random this
was. From the first Let's Bomb Iran entry 300 entries
behind the song is really funny. I touched on it in
the entry about going back to Columbus. I was
getting a cold and was feeling "drunk" because my
body was going through the ensuing war inside my
body. It lead to me dreaming up the "NEIN" bit, and
as well - this song. The song however happened on
the plane, and wouldn't you know all I had to write
on was the barf bag. God that rules. I took a
picture of it on the plane (much to the chagrin of
the flight attendant who informed me I would not
being doing that again - LOL).
funny, was it occurred to me while I was writing
the lyrics: "BOMB BOMB BOMB, BOMB BOMB IRAN" - that
I was probably risking a serious in-flight
situation had anyone seen what I was writing. LOL.
And of course, you kind of have to sing what you're
writing while you're writing it so here I am
sitting on a plane writing and singing BOMB over
and over. Brilliant Adam. You're way too tan to be
pullin' that shit. LOL.
And instead of
waiting until one of my animator friends could take
time away from his job to help me make it, I just
put my nose to the grindstone and went through the
hell that is animation to pull it off. Absolutely
incredible and will be one of my proudest
accomplishments for the rest of my life.
extraordinary than Palin's answer to Katie Couric
about the Alaska/Russia connection. That had to be the
moment I knew, without a doubt, that the tables
had turned. I believed it when McCain had his "worst
week ever" but when that absolute NIMWIT defended her
foreign policy credentials by explaining that Putin
FLIES OVER HER FUCKING STATE when he
LEAVES RUSSIA... People, come on. Like let's all
stop fuckin' around here. I seriously expect Ashton
Kutcher to jump out at the VP debate next week and
yell "You've been Punk'd."
SHE DEFENDED HER FOREIGN POLICY EXPERIENCE
BY SAYING PUTIN FLIES OVER HER STATE
WHEN HE LEAVES HIS COUNTRY.
AND WAS SERIOUS.
For the love of
fucktards this is a farce of astronomical proportions.
Enough. Enough. Enough. This can never ever happen.
Matt Damon wasn't trying to be funny when he called
this a bad Disney movie. He was dead-serious. This is
reality-television gone REALLY bad. People in this
country who have fallen for Palin are watching this
election like it's fucking Dancing with the Stars.
Ahem. Sorry. This
shit makes me crazy. I have held back soooooooo much
as I could write a political entry DAILY, but this is
The Journey and I'm really trying to stay
...but as long as
we're on the subject...
You tellin' me if
Obama was a white guy named Edwards (well, bad
example)... uhm Johnson (heh now that's an innuendo)
FUCK - if Obama was a white guy with a normal name
that we'd even have a race? How much worse can McCain
look? How many more gaffes can he make? How much more
intelligent and full of common sense can Obama
possibly be? Is there a more shining example of
leadership, cool during chaos or overall sense of
command over the issues (no matter what side of the
fence you're on) in a generation? He rocked that
debate on every level and all that's left is racism.
Are we to that point in the evolution of our society
where we can get past that... that's all that's
Time will tell.
But right now it's tellin' me the time has
