I have 5 Girl Friends and I Look Like Michael Jackson on the Thriller Album
July 16, 2009 5:49 PM   Subscribe

He lives somewhere in LA, looks like Michael Jackson and Barack Obama, loves rap, chess, nachos, movies and pizza, has some comic books to sell, and wants to meet white, Asian and Latina Ladies with big butts to give him money, be his sex slaves, or just help him with Things. Performance art project or genuine kook?

CAREFULLY STAGED MEME CRASHES, BURNS.

Prose "too cutesy" say experts, handwriting likely staged.

Film at 11.

Based on the fact he says he looks like both Michael Jackson and Barack Obama, two individuals who really do look nothing alike, I say kook, regardless of whether it's performance art or not.

Sometimes "Performance Artist" is just a nice way of saying "nuttier than a squirrel turd". At least they get paid.

I guess the street team for MF Doom's next album is struggling for inspiration.

Yeh, why not both? Look at that van Gogh fella, he managed to achieve a good art/crazy balance...

But is it some prankster doing this to "freak the mundanes" or make the world a bit odder for whatever peculiar motivation they have, or is there generally some nacho-loving, comic-book-collecting individual who sincerely wants big-butted sex slaves to help him with Things, and believes that what ladies want is a guy who looks like a young Michael Jackson and has made money selling books?

These are indeed not mutually exclusive things, but in this case I believe the optimistic man who is (literally) posting these thinks he will find his big bottomed benefactress.

He says he looks like Michael on "Good Times", well I look like Rerun on "What's Happening!!" Can we double date with some of those ladies with big butts?

Hmmm--it's getting talked about on the interwebs. That's more like "carefully staged meme achieves take-off." Now the only question remains whether it can achieve escape velocity. The whole thing could be someone's sociology experiment.

He added tags to his fliers. He's definitely someone trying to become internet-famous.

Hey, just like Wolverine. Who has a daughter, apparently. Oh, it's some alternate future thing, or an X-chromosome only female clone.

So are we just picking up krap from the floor and putting it on the blue, here?

Mods...I seriously believe that metafilter has thrived because of your mod-fu skills.

When you put it that way...maybe the Internet has woken up and is looking for a mate.

Hey, ye who doesn't want big-butted sex slaves may cast the first stone.

Oh shit: I like nachos, pizza, rap, chess, and movies as well as big bottomed white and latina girls.

I think this might be me.

actually, for this kind of 'street performance art,' you can't beat the sign i saw on a telephone pole in pittsburgh: crude line drawing of a woman in a flowered dress, with 'have you seen this person?' hand-lettered beneath it.
i liked it so much i stole it.

Well, two knuckle claws per hand is certainly less daft than son-of-wolverine and his two knukle claws and a wrist claw. On the other hand... foot claws?
posted by Artw at 10:10 PM on July 16, 2009


Also notice from the Wild Thing article that Wolverine turns up to pick his daughter up from school? That's certainly one up on anything that anything shit dad and general bad husband Scott Summers has ever done.
posted by Artw at 10:13 PM on July 16, 2009


And do derail even further, my god, is son-of-Wolverine everything that's wrong with modern comics rolled up into a tight little bundle or what?

I have a dream of one day creating Vlaw Force, which would be the ultimate fan-wank superheor team, which would consit entirely of all the Wolverine knock offs and their various types of claws. It would be the most Edgy! and Extreme! and Gritty! and full of Attitude! and Angst! thing commited to paper since the Image comics opening lineup.

Of course, the tricky thing would be finding a convincing reason for the team not to all kill each other five minutes after coming together.

To be fair, it's entirely possible to look like Barack Obama and Michael Jackson, given that Jackson's face progressed not as quite a straight line from what would have been a handsome man, who, yes, would have looked as if he had ancestors recently from Africa to that living mime mask, androgynous and racially neutral, along various routes, turning back from surgical dead ends. Somewhere in those permutations Barackness might have lurked.

I like the fact that he's embedded his main message in a tag cloud. Yeah, I won't be using a printer on this one, but here's a tag cloud. Relevance: THUNDERCATS

So before you're all snarf snarf on the guy, he's at least hip to current search techniques.
