Peoples Geography — Reclaiming space

Creating people's geographies

I-Rack

Oh dear. Poor Apple becomes the subject of a very punny and spot-on analogy with the current US administration’s policy in Iraq.

This has been around for a couple of weeks, but I’ve just spotted it at Ed’s over at the Fanonite.

Very clever skit from Mad TV. I’ve posted the vid version sans the bloopers at the end. This vid is all the send-up one needs! (RT 4:16)

    Ye-e-ess! Very apposite, if a little heavy-handed.

    Thanks HA. I thought implicating Apple might have been heavy-handed (shame the products of corporations like Halliburton or Bechtel do not readily lend themselves to puns!) but apart from this i think the whole thing is spot on

Timely Reminders

"Those who crusade, not for God in themselves, but against the devil in others, never succeed in making the world better, but leave it either as it was, or sometimes perceptibly worse than what it was, before the crusade began. By thinking primarily of evil we tend, however excellent our intentions, to create occasions for evil to manifest itself."
-- Aldous Huxley

"The only war that matters is the war against the imagination. All others are subsumed by it."
-- Diane DiPrima, "Rant", from Pieces of a Song.

"It is difficult
to get the news from poems
yet men die miserably every day
for lack
of what is found there"
-- William Carlos Williams, "Asphodel, That Greeny Flower"
