Cool. I get it now. I didn't realize it was done by Barry, but when you refer to those others it makes sense now.

Personally, I love the 96 Ireland. It's soooo politically incorrect, and I like that type of 'black humor'. Conan O'Brian runs along the same genre with his whisky swilling Irishman impressions.

I can see now where our differences are.

Oops.

I just looked at the 'bandage man' from Ireland 06. I don't like that one since it is a sloppy simple design, not many colors. Kind of a gritty industrial look. But, on the other hand it doesn't look at all like the Chicago '06 Bush character.

From the Rolling Stone story:

"Pearl Jam going back on tour in '06 gave us an avenue to funnel not only our creativity, but also a way to voice our frustrations with how unbelievably out of control things had become with our current administration. If I were to sum this poster up in one word, it would definitely be 'dastardly,' a word usually reserved for 1970s cartoon supervillans." — Colby Schultz

I'll guess someone thinks the "gas pump tentacles" and the "Ratfink eyeballs" and cartoon style probably remind them of the other hot print. :roll:



By the way, what was the run on this?

My two cents - really really late. It's a poster for Chicago, but every time I look at it I think it should be a D.C. poster. I get that it was the Bush era and gas/oil was a major point of contention, but even though it sez "Chicago" on top, it still doesn't feel like it's a Chicago poster. I like the concept and, were I at the show, being a die hard PJ fan, I would have probably bought it, framed it and hung it up in my living room... but from a non-show-goer's perspective, Ames has done way better than this (I do like it better than the Chicago Klausen offered up that year).
