From This American Life alum David Rakoff comes a hilarious collection that single-handedly raises self-deprecation to an art form. Whether impersonating Sigmund Freud in a department store window during the holidays, climbing an icy mountain in cheap loafers, or learning primitive survival skills in the wilds of New Jersey, Rakoff clearly demonstrates how he doesn’t belong–nor does he try to. In his debut collection of essays, Rakoff uses his razor-sharp wit and snarky humor to deliver a barrage of damaging blows that, more often than not, land squarely on his own jaw–hilariously satirizing the writer, not the subject. Joining the wry and the heartfelt, Fraud offers an object lesson in not taking life, or ourselves, too seriously.
Let's get this out of the way: David Rakoff is not David Sedaris. When you hear him being incredibly smart and funny on This American Life, you invariably think, "Oh, it's David Sedaris." But if you listen closely, you can tell the difference. Rakoff, while no less witty or nasal, is a little more disappointed. In his first collection--a series of pieces for public radio and for various magazines--he positively revels in his world-weariness. Whether he's investigating the Loch Ness monster, attending a comedy festival in Aspen, Colorado, visiting a New Age retreat hosted by Steven Seagal, or just, you know, playing Freud in a department-store window at Christmastime, Rakoff tends to get comically depleted. Watching the comic Dan Castellaneta, for example, he writes, "It's a bad sign when I start counting the unused props on stage. Only two wigs, one stool, an easel, and a dropcloth to go. I begin to pray to an unfeeling God to please make Castellaneta multitask." In a piece where he attempts to climb a mountain (well... a very short hill), Rakoff immediately nips any Sierra Club fantasies in the bud: "I do not go outdoors. Not more than I have to. As far as I'm concerned, the whole point of living in New York City is indoors. You want greenery? Order the spinach." But in the end, what makes him such a terrific writer is that he's not only onto everyone else, he's onto himself. No wonder his visit to a kibbutz becomes the occasion for some supremely self-conscious amusement: "I know I sound like the Central Casting New Yorker I've turned myself into with single-minded determination when I say this, but the main problem with working in the fields is that the sun is just always shining." --Claire Dederer
FRAUD, WASTE and ABUSE!
If you can try to imagine the most corrupted, ill led and ill trained company on the face of the earth. Well, I don’t know if you have it in you to do such a thing but, there are those out there who may be able to relate to what I am saying. I worked for a company called Combat Support Services Ltd (CSA) who was responsible for a security contract in Kuwait in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom.
The acts of “leaders” by this security contract committed day in and day out are so severe that I am not able to openly, publicly speak of them due to the nature of the contract and the geographic location and the fact that we (United States) are at war. I feel that if I spoke up on all that I know publicly I would be betraying my country and the hero warriors out there every day doing their best to perform a job their leaders have sent them forward to complete. Some may say I am doing this exact thing with what I am putting up here. I will have to respectfully disagree no matter the personal risk to myself. As I stated earlier I have sent a message to the FBI stating that I am willing to provide evidence and testimony in the ongoing Federal investigation being conducted on CSA.
The issues I had I brought up to my superiors only to be told not to worry because, “this is Kuwait, nothing happens here”. Or, “don’t worry about it, if you need this or that or if it needs to be done it will be”. My next step was to contact the U.S. Government Contracting Fraud Waste and Abuse hotline. Much to my disappointment they too didn’t seem to care and I never heard back from them.
Ok, so if no one really cares what are we, the employees, supposed to do? Where can the employees turn to next? Well, most if not all employees simply fade into the realm of not caring. If no one else cares, why should I? I mean, there will really be no consequences because no one cares. So then why should the employee continue to deal with the stress of being the only one who cares?
I can tell you this, CSA and its security leaders and managers are not contractually completing their duty to the American tax payer, moreover to the very people they have been entrusted to secure from security threats within a possible hostile environment.
But I ask myself this, if after nine years CSA has been allowed to continually get away with blatant abuses, what is my lone voice going to do? I’ve complained up the chain! I’ve even tried to complete a Fraud Waste and Abuse complaint but was not taken seriously…so I wonder how far into the “ranks” of this contract the corruption reaches! Just another reason to hate paying taxes that are continually wasted!
First idea was to draw this burglar paying at a shop's counter with a credit card, but then I thought since itz a "fraud" thingy, I wanted it to look dark and very "theivey" so decided to do something with the police man's torch (spot light) catching a burglar in the dark alley.
Thinking along the line of a vector kind of artwork at first. End up, I added alot of textures and it turns out to be more of a mixed media finished.
