YouTuber "Pogo" (you know the one) is a misogynist.

All those lovely Disney mixes? Upular? Alice? Yeah. You know the guy. He’s a slimy fucking trashlord and I want everyone to know it. Nick Bertke hates women and thinks they should be treated like children (because they’re stupid, right?)

Here’s just some choice words from his blog:

“A lot of women you meet, feminists in particular, will preach that you are the source of their failures and womanly strife. This won’t stop them from playing powerless, and they’ll insist that you roll up your sleeves and rescue them from their mysterious bonds.”

Here’s some more!

“I’ve always found that the more I treat a woman like a child, the stronger the relationship, the better the sex and the more often it happens. Discipline, reprimand and complete indifference. I think the feminine woman craves the attributes of a firm father in the man she enters a relationship with.”

Yeah, so unsubscribe, delete his music from your iPod, whatever you need to do to make your point. Unacceptable filth. I am really disappointed.

WALT KELLY

Cartoonist Walt Kelly began his career in journalism, comics, and working for Walt Disney. However, he is most well-known for creating the iconic comic strip Pogo (1948), featuring the titular Pogo Possum, Albert the Alligator, and dozens of other characters inhabiting the Okefenokee Swamp of the American south. Pogo became known for its language and turns of phrase, as well as tackling political issues of the day. In particular, Kelly satirized Joseph McCarthy and the extreme Right wing of American politics.

A couple weeks ago I got an email from Pogo - one of my favorite musicians/video artists on YouTube. He was asking me to do the cover art for his new album, “Kindred Shadow” and I couldn’t have been more flattered. I’m a huge fan and this was a terrific project to work on! The top image is the cover art, but is 16:9 format for YouTube. (Cropped to square for Spotify, Bandcamp, etc.) The bottom image is the back cover and has the track listing laid on top of it. He wanted something that captured loneliness, yearning, and wonder. He’s also well known for sampling Disney movies, so I tried to hit all those notes.

Go listen to the album NOW!! The whole thing is available to stream on YouTube here
