The Fuck New York video which I sent a link to in 0435:1 is one of the most brilliant things I’ve seen all summer and easily will make this year’s top ten list. Since it’s that good I’m obviously not the only one out there who thinks so. Hiphopmusic.com reporter Irina Slutsky got an interview with the filmmakers, the link to which is posted below. – Timothy

“If we saw one more poster with a fist on it, in stark black/white contrast, telling me to go fight whatever, I was gonna puke. We feel like protesting needs to be fun and have some sex appeal. We want to get younger people involved. In the 1960s, a lot of people were getting laid for protesting – not that we’re getting laid cuz of this movie – (laughs) But protesting is a way to align like minded individuals. […] These kids are punk-ass young republican prep school kids. We wanted to have a next generation of Republicans shown as the antithesis of the people we want to reach. […] Throwing in the fact that the kids are these thugged out individuals is showing that the whole Bush family is the most thugged-out crew in the world. We wanted to write it the way kids tal k on the street. ”
