This poster does it for me. The vectorized thing doesn't bother me much here, and I don't think the idea is ripped off. This isn't a bad Spitzer. Rock posters don't have to be spit and polished, and don't have to have great typographic cleveness to be kickarse. The details of the pantyhose webbed-feet and reinforced heel and toes are a good touch.
I think you all are complaining like a bunch of women about programs on the computer and files and what not.
The picture is funny. Come see the show. What the shit else do you want from it... to wipe you baby asses?
er...those old punk flyers "appropriated" a lotta their crass imagery, too. and "punk" is an attitude, a spirit - to reduce it to merely a style (power chords played fast, a mohawk, xeroxed collages) is to miss the point & sap it of meaning
you guys all seem to revere those old punk flyers - crudely drawn, cheaply reproduced, wantonly crass imagery. this is essentially the same thing, updated with the tools (vectorized imagery & digital printing) of the modern day
i'm serious! rocknroll isn't supposed to be "classy," anyways! it's suposed to be rude, vulgar, offensive - a revolutionary squawk against "class" (meaning, of course, UPPER CLASS values). when Rock became bourgeois - tasteul, sophisticated, refined - it died.
the cheapness of its production, the clumsiness of its execution, the tastelessness of the imagery - this is the contemporary American world staring back at you. this is what makes this such an insightful & charming piece of pop detritus - what any rock poster might hope to be
The way this usually goes is that the GP cognoscenti will diss the poster mercilessly, then the "creator" will come in and defend it/blast the denizens of this site for "not having jobs/lives".
The circle of life.
