Don’t You Have It?

I don’t have anywhere near enough Photoshop skills — I don’t even think I have Photoshop — but it seems like it ought to be possible to mash up Martin Amis’s bit about his urges to retaliate against the entire Muslim community with “The Urge” from “They’ll Do It Every Time” (RIP Al Scaduto). Something like:

“Wanko says it’s time to deport all Muslims/ but when he gets called on it he says “I wuz just adumbrating the idea!” [arrow pointing to audience member: “The urge to adumbrate him upside the head”]

Or “Blowhardo writes five thick books on politics/ but when he gets called out his friends say “He’s a novelist, not a sociologist or politician!” [“the urge to make him suffer”]

I think what this shows is, just because “the urge” appears two different places doesn’t mean you can make a mashup of it.

  1. It’s generally speaking way more fun to dream up ways that two things could be mashed together into an interesting synthesis, than to acquire the DJ’ing skills necessary and make it happen. (Well I assume it is anyway.) I don’t think this is something that Photoshop would be the appropriate tool for?
