Steve Lambert in the news... the really, really, news


Apparently, fellow Aggie and artist Steve Lambert was behind the New York Times hoax that took place last week where 1.2 million copies of a fake edition of the NY Times were passed out around the city proclaiming the immediate end of the Iraq war. In addition to the war story, there was also a piece about nationalized healthcare, as well as the implementation of a standardized "maximum wage." Accompanying the paper edition was a web edition natch. Here's a link which may or may not still exist by the time you read this.

Bravo Mr. Lambert, bravo!

I have heard that it was a consortium of about 15 NY artists.

It was indeed including a group called the yes men. I noticed that Steve seems to be getting the lion's share of the interviews...

I am surprised the loud mofo who lived below me at Chateau didn't hog more interviews. Standing in a corner doesn't seem his style.
