The Embassy Has Left the Building




Like all mighty global powers--as well as a variety of tin-pot dictatorships--The United Provinces of Ivanlandia keeps an embassy in NYC.

Although the swine at the UN
have so far refused to recognize the moral, mental, scientific and philosophical superiority of The United Provinces of Ivanlandia,
our glorious nation expects its seat in the General Assembly and the Security Council any day now.



Be that as it may, the Ivanlandia High Command has moved the embassy north, very north.

Of course, the move and the additional security measures (SAC’s 100 megaton payloads and their electromagnetic pulses are like water off a duck’s back
to the Ivanlandia Embassy’s SecCon defense grid!) have nearly bankrupt the Holy Ivanlandia Treasury, but it was worth it.

The Embassy staff has been working hard setting up their new location, often in sweltering heat.

But it’s either that, or back to the Ivanlandia plutonium mines for them!

So that is why transmissions from Radio Free Ivanlandia
have been few and far between lately.
Now, what are Otto Mannix and Toestubber’s excuses?



In other good news, one of Ivanlandia’s favorite films, Robert Altman’s Brewster McCloud (with a screenplay by Skidoo scribe Doran William Cannon!!!), is now finally available on DVD. This makes me so happy, I could just shit in my pants.

Oops. I did.

  1. Wait, I don't see sign online that Brewster McCloud is available on DVD. No sign of Skidoo either. And have you seen the Japanese poster for Brewster with the title "Bird Shit"?

  2. Dave,
    I'm not sure if you're making sense. But if you email that Bird Shit jpeg, I'll post it. Hey, we've got to check out Lustig's next film series at the Anthology!

  3. Why don't you interview Lustig. That would be great.

  4. OMR staffer (fired)July 28, 2010 at 10:51 AM

    Half the staff of OMR was fired due to recession crunch. Otto himself was spotted recently wandering aimlessly around Chinatown, visibly drunk and disheveled. Two big blobs of bird shit were seen on his shoulder and back, indicated he had sat in one spot outdoors for quite a while, probably DRINKING!
