This is a re-imagined Donald Duck cartoon remix constructed using 50 classic Walt Disney animated shorts from the 1930s to 1960s. Donald’s life is turned upside-down by the current economic crisis and he finds himself unemployed and falling behind on his house payments. As his frustration turns into despair Donald discovers a seemingly sympathetic voice coming from his radio named Glenn Beck.

Will Donald’s feelings of disenfranchisement lead him to be persuaded by his radio’s increasingly paranoid and divisive rhetoric? Or will our favorite Disney duck decide that this voice is not actually on his side after all? Watch and find out!

Damien Hirst is an artist used to catching flack. Possibly the richest living artist, many of his works are high cost shock tactics including  a human skull adorned with 8,601 diamonds collectively valued at approximately £15,000,000.

The Stuckist Art Group had this to say about the wealthy artist, “The fact that Hirst’s work does mirror society is not its strength but its weakness – and the reason it is guaranteed to decline artistically (and financially) as current social modes become outmoded. What Hirst has insightfully observed of his spin-paintings in Life and Death and Damien Hirst is the only comment that needs to be made of his entire oeuvre: “They’re bright and they’re zany – but there’s fuck all there at the end of the day.”

This does not stop his works from fetching incredible price tags, regardless of their actual originality. Hirst has made himself into a designer brand that can be slapped on just about anything from a fish in a jar, to a page of color dots. This is how he has come to be worth an estimated 388 million dollars, yet with all that money and means, why is he so furious about an unknown collage artist named Cartrain?

It’s probably pride. Cartrain has been getting a lot of attention from his collage portraits of Mr. Hirst combining images of his hyped work to catch his smug likeness. Notice the diamond skull to the right, originating from Hirst’s over-glorified piece titled “For the Love of God” (my sentiment exactly.) The piece perfectly captures an artist in his midlife crisis surviving on a bug diet to maintain his figure.

Unflinched by the obvious class divide, Hirst launched a full throttled attack with lawyers and actually claimed all but one of these works to have them destroyed. He’s gone even further demanding the 16 year old artist to pay 200 pounds in copyright fees for use of the images in the works that he just seized. Luckily this one to the right has been saved by a collector and shared with all of us.
