Strange Days, Indeed?

The photography of Stanley Kubrick, circa 1940-something, may give you comfort that there were once freaks who were just as freaky or even freakier than the freaks of today.

The evidence makes the characters in Dr. Strangelove and A Clockwork Orange look stiff and colorless (of course, Kubrick did shoot Strangelove and Lolita in black and white…).

Nobody told me there’d be days like these (3X)…strange days, indeed. Most peculiar, mama.

About Professor Mockumental

I enjoy almost all forms of parody, buffoonery, and general high-jinks. Satire has shown itself to be an essential societal need; I therefore humbly offer my services in such a manner. I enjoy mocking the usual suspects at the New York Times (Charles Blows, Moron Dowd, and the earth is flat guy) and Washington Post (Dana Milkbag, E.D. Dijon, and David Ignoramus). There are many others as well, but sadly, there are always too many targets and too little time.
