It’s obvious that this fun Shark paste-up by street artist Captain Eyeliner (@captain_eyeliner) has been out in the elements for a while, but I just noticed it while I was visiting Freeman Alley on my recent Birthday, and happened to walk west on Rivington toward Bowery instead on heading east towards Chrystie, which is my usual route. The message of Smash the Patriarchy, featuring an engaging image of Uncle Sam as a hungry Shark is both powerful and timely. A bit of research on Captain Eyeliner’s Instagram tells me this campaign is from 2019. Glad to see it has survived. Shark Attack on the Patriarchy, Bitches!
It’s a good thing I have a sharp eye or I would have walked right by this fun street art sticker, which cleverly portrays the hideous orange face of Dump as an Orange Dum Dums sucker! Bwhahahaha! They got the sucking part right, that is for sure. Just six more that of this loser. January 20th can’t come soon enough.

No, this isn’t a mash-up tie-in for The Force Awakens and racist douche Donald Trump’s mortifying horrorshow of a campaign to win the Republican Presidential nomination; it’s an actual artwork by Seattle-based artist Michael Leavitt, that appeared in his 2103 exhibit, Empire Peaks. For this exhibit, which was shown at the Jonathan LeVine Gallery in NYC, Leavitt created action figures of celebrities, politicians, humanitarians and other famous non-fictional personalities crossed with Star Wars characters, juxtaposing the classic archetypal roles found in Yoda, Luke Skywalker, and Darth Vader, etc. With Trump, I think he really nailed it.

Oh, this is really good: a new blog that lists and discusses all things that are Younger Than John McCain! Worth bookmaking, for sure.
While Googling the phrase “liberal is not a dirty word,” I totally stumbled across this awesome article discussing the easily supported belief (which, by the way, I share) that Jesus was a Liberal. It’s from 2006, but it’s even more timely today than it was when it was written.
