This mashup of “Niggas in Paris” and Midnight in Paris is not just everything because it’s fun, clever and slick, but because tastemaking (yes) blogger Jason Kottke said about it:
This is so perfectly in the kottke.org wheelhouse that I can’t even tell if it’s any good or not.
Most “fun things we found on the internet” bloggers experience this. I defy them not to. But I don’t know how many would recognize that they’re experiencing this, or admit it. Videogum‘s Gabe Delahaye could probably write two thousand David-Foster-Wallacean words on it. He’s done as much before.
Because blogging for money and/or attention is partly giving people what they want, and partly showing what you value, and a very important part is trying to make those two match up in a satisfying way, and oh god just watch a Woody Allen rap video.
