One Song More

Wow, is it that time of Election Year already? When superblogger and apparently self-hating theater queen Andrew [Lloyd] Sullivan posts a WTF Obamafied version of a Les Mis anthem?

This time it's "One Term More" which, Holy Cameron Mackintosh, people. Just go watch it this very instant. Don DeMesquita, ladies and gentlemen.

Because it even has "A Political Parody" right in the subtitle, I'm forced to wonder what, exactly, it's a parody of. And then how do I really know it isn't some kind of super-jiujitsu triangulating GOP countermeasure to psych out musical theater liberals? But no, the fair use disclaimer is so desperate, they must be real.

HOW COULD I HAVE EVER DOUBTED UPDATE: I forgot the couplet, "Emboldened by Star-Spangled myth,
We want a JEDI...NOT a SITH!!!"

Anyway, in 2008, it was "Les Misbarack," UltimateImprov's straight-up lipsynch of "One Day More," set in the Obama National Campaign HQ on election eve.

Which Sullivan introduced on Sept. 12th, at 4:53 AM, with the comment, "Whatever happens, the McCain campaign could never pull this off. Patience, steel... triumph."

To which I will only add, "Malgre tout, la Resistance demeure." Or in this case, "So hat doch, la Resistance gesiegt!"

Since 2001 here at greg.org, I've been blogging about the creative process—my own and those of people who interest me. That mostly involves filmmaking, art, writing, research, and the making thereof.

Many thanks to the Creative Capital | Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Program for supporting greg.org that time.
