If Man Repeller was stranded inside a deserted dictionary and could only use one word to describe itself, it would manipulate the notion of generation portmanteau and choose “Funtent.” This is a combination of fun and content, but the caveat here is that fun doesn’t just mean fun — it also means fucking great. Capital curse words and all. So, Man Repeller at its core strives to produce content that is fun(ny) and fucking great. Period
As such, it doesn’t matter how it’s presented — written word, photography, video, cartoon, smoke signals made of farts — but as far as I’m concerned, we haven’t done our job unless you’ve walked away feeling something: accomplished, enlightened, satisfied, nourished; even angry. Enter one more way to pull emotion out of you: the most recent medium we’re adding to the roster of ways to connect includes audio and our inaugural podcast, Oh Boy, hosted by our filmmaker, Jay Buim. In it, he sits down with cool women for one-on-one conversations about their life and work.
The first episode of Oh Boy bends the rules by foregoing the clause about cool women to feature one weird one, or the artist formerly known as me. Listen to it while you meditate, drive home from work, eat cereal, walk to the grocery shop to buy avocados, breast feed your baby or walk aimlessly through the streets near your home and then let us know what you think. We look forward to connecting with your ear lobes.
Also! Check back next week, same day, same place for a brand !new! episode. This is going to be a lot of fun.
Respect, waist bands and high-crown top hats,
