For some reason I have been thinking how I miss the Occupy Wall Street movement. They had trenchant humor

corporations are people

and righteous indignation
shit is

And terrific graphics

take the square

direct action


And where are the movies? Where is the romantic comedy about the two people pictured above? Where is Shia LaBeouf as the cynical police sergeant awakening to what’s really going on? Where is Paul Giamati as a city bureaucrat trying to cope? Where’s Peter Sarsgaard  as a protest leader? Where’s Amy Adams doing whatever she wants? Sound check,  film makers!

By the way, I googled the phrase “shit is fucked up and bullshit” to find the image above. The images page for that search is just great.
