Dave Pell @NextDraft has a great commentary on Michael Eisner's slow tumble toward destrcution:

Everywhere we look,
our worst paranoias are confirmed as being
anything but. They cheat us everywhere from WMDs
and mutual funds to mass marketed midriffs and
four bladed razors. They're laughing at us and now
we finally get a chance to laugh at one of them.
Die Eisner. Die.


As someone who once had their tiny paychecks signed by a reproduction of this man's signature, i wholeheartedly agree. burn baby burn. It all reminds me of Baudrillard: "Disneyland is there to conceal the fact that it is the "real" country, all of "real" America, which is Disneyland (just as prisons are there to conceal the fact that it is the social in its entirety, in its banal omnipresence, which is carceral). Disneyland is presented as imaginary in order to make us believe that the rest is real, when in fact all of Los Angeles and the America surrounding it are no longer real, but of the order of the hyperreal and of simulation"
