Randy Rainbow New Video
They deploy comedy tactics to satirize politicians and ask us to think about our complicities with our own exploitation. They ask us to question not only the still-forming, constantly evolving “new normal,” but also to dig into the “old normal” that facilitated both the coronavirus and its global mishandling. The second invasion of Iraq self-consciously manipulated public opinion via the “shock and awe” strategy. Journalists embedded with the military, eliminating journalistic distance for access—and ultimately ratings. Following the first contentious presidential debate, where Mr Biden was repeatedly interrupted by Mr Trump, it was decided the moderator can mute either candidate’s mic this time around.
One of the original stars of Rent, Anthony Rapp, had this high praise. The Kamala video is the latest installment in Rainbow’s series of politically themed musical numbers. Left-leaning fans have praised the video as one of Rainbow’s best. In his first video since the tweets resurfaced, Rainbow broke the fourth wall as he sought to address his past views. Joe Biden will be sworn in as president of the United States on Wednesday , with a televised special hosted by Tom Hanks set to air afterwards. The song ends with Rainbow begging Americans to “never again” let Donald Trump hold any kind of power – and we’re fairly sure plenty of people will agree with him on that one.
This project turns to New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo. Although Cuomo and Trump are positioned as opposing politicians during the pandemic, Decotis’s videos reveals their rhetorical and patriarchal similarities. Maria Decotis reveals that Republicans were not the only US politicians monopolizing precious live-coverage time during the pandemic with insipid ramblings. As this video makes clear, normalization of consumerism during a crisis is a vacuous and even dangerous distraction. The video remixes and mashes scenes from a variety of advertisements to reveal their formulaic appeals for consumer confidence through emotionally manipulative imagery of trite humanistic interactions with products and nondiegetic musical scores.
The supercut of corporate strategies to reassure customers that things would return to normal reveals the intrusion of disaster capitalism into our daily lives. A pandemic of media illiteracy twins with the public health pandemic. He partnered with Christine Nobiss and Seeding Sovereignty to create a GoFundMe campaign to raise the US$3,000 to make the banner that reads “Capitalism is the Pandemic” and hire the aerial advertising plane. Seeding Sovereignty also contributed community and social media outreach on the project.
Buffalo-based media artist Jason Livingston wanted to figure out a way to protest creatively despite the lockdowns during the pandemic in New York State. He started imagining what kinds of protest are viable under these extreme conditions. The short video satires compiled in this playlist consider ways in which social media might provide platforms to enable political critiques within these corporate-controlled media spaces.
Comedian Randy Rainbow has released a new parody song targeting Georgia Congresswomen – and noted Qanon conspiracy theorist – Marjorie Taylor Greene. In Wellfleet, there’s a little year-round purpose-built theatre the Wellfleet Harbor Actors Theatre, where I saw Raging Skillet, an affectionate and affecting stage version of Chef Rossi’s autobiographical account of her relationship with her mother and much else. Even if there are times when the gear shifts from autobiography to stage play are a bit clunky, it tells such a good human story that its an uplifting joy to watch. David Drake, Provincetown Theater’s new artistic director, staged a richly Chekhovian production and starred himself as the choreographer.
He digitally clones his own images as backup singers, who help him skewer the hypocrisies of those in power. Trump’s ramblings pollute media ecosystems with both misinformation and disinformation. They infect our thinking like a virus, with both supporters and detractors forwarding and propagating them in community spread. In order to deny the US president free publicity, many argue against repostings. The originally slated flyover of New York City on International Worker’s Day was postponed due to weather for two days. The video documentation of the flyover has gone viral, and a social media campaign of still images of the plane and banner have populated various social media platforms.

Set to the tune of Barbra Streisand’s “Evergreen”, the song parody takes aim at “nuts filling the GOP” but focuses on Greene, who “seldom has a clue”. The clip also frequently cuts to old footage of Greene promoting conspiracies on social media. This YouTube sensation with his wonderfully astute video pastiches of Trump’s regime that puts new lyrics to theatre songs has become one of the viral pleasures of living through this era.
The round also included funding from two existing investors, Imaginary Ventures and Alliance Consumer Growth. The TV personality’s lucrative businesses – makeup brand KKW launched in 2017 and Skims in have gained popularity with young shoppers, and have been heavily promoted and sold online with the help of Kardashian’s social media huge following. Kardashian, who launched her career off the reality TV series “Keeping Up with The Kardashians,” was included in April for the first time on Forbes magazine’s list of the world’s billionaires. The video covers all of Giuliani’s greatest hits, including his My Cousin Vinny legal defence, his help in covering up Trump’s alleged crimes, and of course, that time he was caught by Borat in a hotel room with his hands down his pants. The infamous news conference where a strange brown liquid started running in rivulets down Giuliani’s cheeks was undoubtedly a low career point in a year he’d already marred with a Borat controversy and a chaotic appearance at Four Seasons Total Landscaping. Accompanying the post is a photo of Joe Biden on a video call with a smiling Harris as they discuss the news.
Here, it deviates a bit from the flow of the original song, as Randy spills all his feelings. The video borrows quite a bit from Grease, in addition to the tune. Randy’s ‘backup singers’ are made up of copies of himself singing — while dressed up as Frenchie with her Easter egg-pink hair. An American comedian recorded a love ballad for New York Governor Andrew Cuomo — to the tune of the song ‘Sandy’ from the movie Grease. Comedian Matt Forde on his impressions of the British prime minister and the US president.
Seeing him live at the Crown and Anchor was a joy as well as participating in a shared act of resistance. In his latest video, Rainbow kicks off the conversation in a mock studio interview with Trump where he touches on Trump’s recent statements about being “King of the Jews,” the president’s claim that he is the “Chosen One;” and his trip to the G7 Summit. Corporate talking points such as “we’re all in this together” and “strange and uncertain times” are exposed as shameless lies. We are neither all in “this” together, nor is anything strange or uncertain. His song parodies hack the styles and melodies of Broadway musical theater with a heavy flourish of camp at its most queer, which is particularly satirical when paired with statements by homophobic politicians. They are produced as a one-man show, starring only Randy in various costumes.
Not exactly a show, but a weekly Wednesday night institution is drag bingo with Scarbie calling the numbers (and calling out the audience with her own withering put-downs). I played it almost every week I was in town — and even won a couple of times — but mostly this was about a real community get-together, bringing locals and visitors, straight and gay, together for sheer fun. Also at the Crown and Anchor, a concert appearance by the former wife and muse of composer Frank Wildhorn — for which she starred on Broadway in his musical Jekyll and Hyde — was a gorgeous evening of belting vocals. She seemed when she burst first onto the recording scene as a natural successor to Streisand; if she’s never realised that full star potential, she’s easily in the league of Streisand and Celine Dion. “Well, it is a special day indeed as I am joined now by the divine Miss T, our lord and savior, king of the Jews…am I leaving anything out?
DONALD TRUMP had his mic turned off by the moderator during Thursday’s presidential debate in Nashville, Tennessee. One of the experts, C Robert Kehler, who was commander of the US Strategic Command from , said that in his former role he would have followed the president’s order to carry out the strike – if it were legal. Republicans starting to feel the breeze as diverse Dems have a good election day. Daily news, satire and comment from the world’s worst local newspaper. Ever since we first saw him, we at The Herald have loved the fabulous Randy Rainbow, but he’s outdone himself this time. The recently impeached Trump is stepping down from office later today with Democratic president-elect Joe Biden poised for inauguration.
RuPaul’s Drag Race UK season two has hardly bing-bang-bonged its last, but the good news is that there is already a new international Drag Race to look forward to. The White House COVID-19 response team holds a news briefing. The aptly titled “Rudolph the Leaky Lawyer” is set to the festive tunes of “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer”, and it well and truly destroys any semblance of dignity the president’s lawyer may ever have had. Rudy Giuliani’s last hope of forgetting the moment he began melting live on TV is gone forever thanks to Randy Rainbow, who’s immortalised it forever in song.
