Good Magazine assembled this series of videos on social media site iMeem as some election-by-numbers edutainment. While some of it may prompt the informed among you to press the fast forward (do it, it's OK), there are some fun and informative bits like the 'Swinger States' clip (number 3). In that one, two ladies men, played by playboy attired Obama and McCain, break out their little black books of states 'they can pick up.' Yeah, it's election time, kids.
While you're in a video mood, double back to iMeem's Manifest Hope Gallery video from Denver, during the DNC. It's great stuff featuring Shepard Fairey, David Choe, Morgan Spurlock, Z-Trip and others.
In 1990, I co-founded a magazine called URB (urb.com) in Los Angeles. URB captures an intimate view of progressive urban sounds and landscapes in print and online. Beyond my day job, I also explore the world of politics, race and culture, photography and media (new and old). pure/ROKER is designed to be a living and shared notebook of the most discussion worthy aspects. Enrichment is encouraged. Debate and disagreement unavoidable. And dissent welcomed. As always, please leave a comment if you're inspired, subscribe to my RSS or email me anytime at email@example.com.
