You realize people are getting sick of seeing our faces, right?
WHOA WHOA WHOA YOU HAD A BIRTHDAY?!
One full hour of NFL discussion regarding Free Agency activity, the impending NFL Draft, and covering all of the major offseason topics with Bleacher Report Lead NFL Writer and Editor of B/R’s blog The Go Route, Josh Zerkle.
10. Michael Douglas as Andrew Shepherd, The American President.
Who among us hasn’t shelved his girlfriend’s green legislation for political gain?
9. Frank Langella as Richard Nixon, Frost/Nixon.
I’d expect no lesser portrait of angst from a guy that fucked Whoopi Goldberg.
8. Will Ferrell as George W. Bush, “You’re Welcome America”.
It was better than Anchorman, which is saying very little, really.
7. Morgan Freeman as Tom Beck, Deep Impact.
At least Freeman’s Beck never shelled out any money to Solyndra.
6. Martin Sheen as Josiah Bartlet, “The West Wing”.
More political cartoon than performance, but almost peerless in pop culture.
5. Phil Hartman as Ronald Reagan, “Saturday Night Live”.
Nothing captured Reagan’s essence better than this sketch, ca. 1987.
4. Paul Giamatti as John Adams, “John Adams”.
The heartbeat of McCollough’s tome brought to life…and with no pinot to boot!
3. Kevin Kline as Dave Kovic as Bill Mitchell, “Dave”.
“Hail to the Chief, he’s the one we all say ‘Hail’ to!”
2. David Morse as George Washington, “John Adams”.
Can’t think of a better portrayal of our most esteemed founding father.
1. Dana Carvey as George H. W. Bush, “Saturday Night Live”.
That Bush voice we all did in school? Not gonna do it. Wouldn’t be prudent.
People are taking the piss out of you everyday. They butt into your life, take a cheap shot at you and then disappear. They leer at you from tall buildings and make you feel small. They make flippant comments from buses that imply you’re not sexy enough and that all the fun is happening somewhere else. They are on TV making your girlfriend feel inadequate. They have access to the most sophisticated technology the world has ever seen and they bully you with it. They are The Advertisers and they are laughing at you.
You, however, are forbidden to touch them. Trademarks, intellectual property rights and copyright law mean advertisers can say what they like wherever they like with total impunity.
Fuck that. Any advert in a public space that gives you no choice whether you see it or not is yours. It’s yours to take, re-arrange and re-use. You can do whatever you like with it. Asking for permission is like asking to keep a rock someone just threw at your head.
You owe the companies nothing. Less than nothing, you especially don’t owe them any courtesy. They owe you. They have re-arranged the world to put themselves in front of you. They never asked for your permission, don’t even start asking for theirs.” —Banksy (via thenewavengers, angwe & moorehn)
