Over on my Strange Up Salem Facebook page (give it a Like by a click at the top of this blog's right sidebar), today I posted a paean to a local blog -- The Upright Cyclist -- I hadn't known about before.
The blogger is a genius! Reminds me of me.
Check out this amazingly well-written and amusing post, "The Hidden Meanings in Campaign Signs."
The campaign signs of Ward 2 city council candidates Tom Andersen, Bradd Swank, and Sheronne Blasi are analyzed in entertaining detail. I bow at this blogger's feet.
Anyone who can throw in a reference to "Gerhard Baumschneider, the noted German campaign sign theorist and author of Will to Power: Creating Overwhelming Posters and Signs that Crush the Opposition in Attractive Ways" deserves a big thumbs-up.
Especially since Baumschneider seems to be a figment of The Upright Cyclist's imagination. Way to go, dude! You had me until I Googled the reference.
