Hold Steady's Craig Finn x Popular Culture's Chuck Klosterman: BROGASM



Since Chuck Klosterman evolved from a nerdy humorist from the Dakotas to a nationally worshipped figurehead for a very specific breed of blowhardy American male, conditions have become increasingly worse for the animals. And ever since Craig Finn's The Hold Steady went from a beer-chugging Minnesotan bar band to a Moet-guzzling ensemble of arena-ready performers, a small child's hamster has died once an hour. Perhaps the only way to stop the poaching of zebras was for Craig Finn and his old pal Tom Ruprecht, writer on David Letterman (whole 'nother post), to band together to turn Klustramoun's seminal first book, "Great American Presidents," into a watchable film starring Natalie Portman, known friend to the animals. Because so little of today's popular entertainment and culture caters to white males, they are doing us all a service, looking out for the little people. When this film is made the oppressed bepenistacled across America will finally have something that they can relate to. And then, if this plan that Kloosterhein and Finn and Ruprecht have hatched doesn't actually save the Albanian tree frog from getting iced to extinction by frothy chefs, it will not matter, because an entire breed of person will have been saved.
