It's time to stop playing
Games in this country.
It is time to actually believe
In something. I do.
I know you do as well.
Believe in something.
Even if it's wrong.

Shepard Fairey has written a piece discussing the controversy surrounding his use of an AP photo as a reference for his iconic HOPE poster of Obama. He makes all the expected (and I think highly valid) arguments for why he didn’t need to ask permission to use the photo, why he doesn’t owe AP or Mannie Garcia (the photographer) any money, and why the poster is still his own original work. And driving the point home, he also points out that the photo he based his illustration on wasn’t even the one that the press has been circulating.

Supreme pitchman Billy Mays is calling out Vince the ShamWow guy for ripping him off. Two relevant YouTube clips: Comparison of ShamWow/Zorbeez and Billy Mays talking shit on Adam Carolla’s radio show. I find it hard to have any sympathy for Billy Mays getting ripped off — no matter how many ultra-winning smiles he flashes. Of course, Vince doesn’t get much sympathy either on account of his whole punching hookers shtick. (But come on, she bit his tongue!)

Boo. The Shamwow guy punched a hooker. Although apparently she bit his tongue and wouldn’t let go. Weird.
