Sam Lipsyte’s Self-Affirmation
Posted by: Keir Graff
I hesitated before sharing this video, which illustrates the essay, “Get a Head of Steam for Your Self-Esteem,” by Sam Lipsyte (The Ask, 2010). But, I decided, if we can review a fake children’s book called Go the Fuck to Sleep, to draw the line at man-breasts, simulated barfing, and seemingly genuine flatulence would be mere quibbling. Also, to withhold this video would be to demonstrate my lack of belief in your ability, dear reader, to make the kinds of tough choices that include not clicking on things you are likely to soon be leaving angry comments about.
Also, it is Friday, and this is quite funny.
