one of the most important question now that we know who killed Bambi and what Paris Hilton did in her young days: The Obeys, alien beings from a dying planet? Their destination: the Earth? Their purpose: to make it their world?
King Negrito has seen them, for him it began one lost night on a lonely Paris street, looking for a short cut that he never found. It began with a closed deserted diner, and a Grito too long without sleep to continue his journey. It began with the pop up of a face from another galaxy. Now, King Negrito knows that the Obeys are here, that they have taken wall form. Somehow he must convince a disbelieving world that something has already begun, whatever it is.
King Negrito: Obey? Who, What, Why?
Of course you know me, when I faced that strange thing on a pillar of the French Tax ministry I was both puzzled, interested, excited, amused, it looked like kind of political message in one word, or maybe was it the new tax collector message, but there was nothing more to explain what it was. Immediately I contacted through my Gritberry the A12G secret services, and launched an official SWCA - Strange Wall Creature Alerts – which are lower level than the IWA - Intellectual Watch Alerts - but higher than the FPA - Fashion Police Alerts- and soon came back an information saying another Obey has been seen Rue des Rois de Sicile, 3rd district, in fact not that far from Gritoland, so I ran there…
Negrito: damned, that’s an invasion!
There again, I faced the same problem. The creature was clearly visible, but was not saying anything, that was really strange, like if the medium was the message. I looked around to see if there was something special to be watched, but there was nothing unusual in that part of Paris: a sun bed shop, a gay bar and a restaurant… The Obey creatures were clearly doing something but what? Trying to remember what I had discussed with the White men from Jerome Mesnager a few months ago, I put myself in their mind and my best guess was that they were there to be there. From there my brain started to work again, and I suddenly remembered that I already had seen one of them without paying too much attention, so I crossed the Seine and ran to the Intellectual heaven, the 6th district… to see that even Angela Davis had joined the Obeys !
Negrito: This one I know, she’s Angela Davis!
Of course we had a nice chat, and she told me that she was starting to be surprised that someone like me, always looking for the latest trends, and very well acquainted with the bi-dimensional creatures , had taken such a long time to make the connection between the various Obeys that were visible in the City of Lights. She also told me that they were all over the place, and that in my trips now it would be a good idea to look for them, because they could help me if need be. I asked her who their king was, and she laughed, “We do not have a King, we have a Posse” was her cryptic answer before people passed by and she went back to silence… I must admit I was kind of in a state of shock, I mean, such a wall invasion that went unnoticed – not really as we marveled at all of them separately, but the amazing thing is that we did not make the connection – and I needed a good glass of red Wine in an Intellectual bar to recover and regain my brain, so I headed for the “Bar Du Marché” rue de Buci, but I was stopped in my way…
Negrito: The message is now clear to me!
That kind lady stopped me with a flower, and she asked how Angela was, and I realized they all were connected, they know who we are and what we do, and they love us! They are like some guardian Angels flying on the walls, and the Red wine helped me clarify my vision: I typed “Obey Posse” in my Gritberry browser, and suddenly the Truth was revealed : you can find it here : http://www.obeygiant.com/ . The Obeys are the members of Shepard Fairey’s team. This mysterious Shepherd and his posse are delivering a worldwide twisted propaganda message, just to put yourself five centimeters above your previous self, and that small shift is more than enough to wake up your little grey cells. That awareness enlightened my mood so much that I offered myself a second glass of wine, and when walking back to the Sorbonne I even smiled when reading the French Intellectual typical debate pitch…
Negrito: that’s the French touch!
As you may know, there has been kind of a funny story this year around the book awards, and Christine Angot was kind of expecting to win the Goncourt, but Jonathan Littel kind of poublished a blockbuster, and the Goncourt jury found it wise to board the boat to success at the last second and gave him the Goncourt, which meant for Angot she only won the Prix de Flore, which is a pity as it is supposed to reward the brightest newcomer and she has been hanging around for quite a few years.. Anyhow this is still agitating the little intellectual world in Paris as you can see on the walls.
Is there a conclusion to this story? No, because it’s a never-ending story, the Obeys are all over Paris and if you come there, you’d better check them out, it’s also an excellent way to discover the city far from the tourist corridors. And who knows? Maybe next to your place, in the street, just above that barber shop, yes there is an Obey agent watching over you, so be careful!
Kisses to all
