This Week's Video: Financial Fondue
APRIL 26, 2011
Here’s Angelo Mozilo of Countrywide Financial as a cake. See what happens when he meets regulator John Reich (HIS PAL!) who is a soft piece of chocolate in my new video: Financial Fondue, for Slate.com.
Here's what happens when working in new media; in this case, with meat. The brave piece of cheese was originally supposed to be the topping for a cheeseburger. I thought the softest cheese would be a piece of Edam, which I scupted and painted. The top of the burger never got hot enough to bother the cheese in any significant way. The bottom of the burger started to burn while the cheese stubbornly kept looking at me like this. Finally I opted for Velveeta and mac (which, as we all know, is something that never fails).
