The recent fracas indicates the problems with using metaphor, nonsense, sarcasm and parody in commentary. It doesn’t matter in politicians do it, they are called politicians for a reason.
I applaud mrbrown for his persistent commentary and ideals, but there are limits to what a lampooning podcast can do in terms of delivering the ideals behind sarcasm. The only way to prove one’s credibility is to stand up as worthy, examinable candidates to the majority vote.
It saddens me that the use of metaphor is regarded as contentious in this climate(will the creative drought ever cease?), but in a hypersensitive arena, facts remain unassailable. Facts and precision are still lacking(or poorly publicised) in alternative ideologies and media outlets.
I am all for critiquing the alternative until it is able to stand up as a viable choice against the mainstream, instead of delivering yet another pat on their back for their brilliant wit and prize insults.
uurrggghhh…ahem! There are some humorous parts so I don’t see this as a poor production from you guys. Not one of your better productions but pretty hilarious for some of the suggestions you guys gave! eg. the swimming costumes…that’s a good idea.
