“Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff” a Unique Metaphor for the U.S.

Sean Penn has always had outspoken political views, and this march he released a book called “Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff”. Sitting down for interviews with Trevor Noah, of the daily show, and Vogue Magazine, Penn describes his book which he calls a strange metaphor for the current state of American affairs. Penn tells Noah that the book talks about the “dark nature of humans” and their fascination with fascism. He mentions that he feels that democracy can easily fall into fascism and he worries that is currently happening in the United States. The book talks about Bob Honey, an angry American, who in his free time murders older citizens with a mallet. He believes that these people stand in the way of progress.

Though Trevor Noah believes this book is hard to describe due to its satirical look and absurd plot, there appear to be societal takes that Penn is looking to investigate. During the book’s first chapter, Bob witnesses the presidential election of 2016, and even writes an angry letter to the President, telling him that he is truly unfit for public office. Bob Honey Who Just do Stuff has received mixed reviews but Penn’s interview clarify his intentions to write the book. Penn says that Bob is created to describe the feeling some Americans have, that they are compelled to serve their country but lack direction and cause in doing so. This could describe why Bob goes on mallet wielding sprees for the sake of “progress.”

Aside from just discussing the book, Penn gives both Vogue and Noah a background on where his views came from. He talks about his anger towards Trump, when the president said harsh words towards Haiti and other third world countries. He also discusses his friendship with Hugo Chavez, discussing American’s role in the world, and his contempt of democracy being enforced elsewhere. Penn even brings up the war on drugs, and the death toll it has caused. He feels that his interview with El Chapo was important in learning more about it. From these interviews, it seems clear that Penn stepped away from film, to discuss his anger with the U.S., and Bob was a perfect symbol of it.



The Chainsmokers Plan to Change their Tune in 2018

The Chainsmokers is a musical group comprised of two talented men, namely Alex Pall and Drew Taggart. In late January of 2018, the group was invited to perform at an event being held at the Conrad New York hotel in New York City. They performed their musical hits for the Hilton and American Express function being held at the Conrad.

The group has been a regular on the list of top 10 hits since 2015. The Chainsmokers had a hit with their single entitled “Roses.” It was then followed by another top 10 hit for the group, this one entitled “Paris.” Their songs are appealing to music lovers in many age groups, including the mainstream pop music fans. The songs of the musical duo have frequently remained in the top 10 on Billboard’s top 100 U.S. hits list for many weeks in a row, sometimes even months in a row. For instance, when pop stars Alex and Drew came out with “Closer,” the song was tremendously popular and it remained on the charts for 12 weeks.

The song released by The Chainsmokers soon after “Roses,” entitled “Don’t Let Me Down,” won a Grammy for Best Dance Recording. Additionally, the group’s first song to hit number 1 on the Billboard Chart was “Closer.” Alex and Drew of The Chainsmokers seemed to be releasing hit after hit.

It’s been several months since The Chainsmokers have come out with a new song. They were asked about that in an interview earlier this year. The duo said they will soon release a more serious, darker sounding song entitled “Sick Boy.” Their songs, they explained, will reflect a more grown up side of them, in terms of as artists and as individuals. The Chainsmokers will be releasing a series of songs with their updated tone.

The two artists have been making music together as The Chainsmokers since 2012.
