Decision 2010: The Rent is Too Damn HighNovember 1, 2010
New York gubernatorial candidate Jimmy McMillan is running on “The Rent is Too Damn High”platform. And his album, The Rent is Too DAMN High (Vol. 1) will be available digitally tomorrow. He got a little attention on the (GD) New York Times today. They’ve also got his first single — “What is This?” — on their City Room Blog.
Whatever you think of his politics — and I don’t know anything about them, other than what I read in the comments section of the City Room blog post — Jimmy Mack (as he was known in the 1970s) can bring the funk.
Oh, and speaking of musical politicians, don’t forget the screening of Huixia Lu’s film Independent For Governor, about Rod Bryan’s 2006 campaign for Governor of Arkansas, 7:PM on Wednesday, November 10, at the Reynolds Performance Hall on the campus of University of Central Arkansas in Conway.
