Now Dave Nuttycombe Wants Blake Gopnik’s Job
Dave Nuttycombe is at it again. On the heels of creating an application video to replace WaPo fashion critic Robin Givhan, the former City Paper staffer has done the same for the vacancy created by art critic Blake Gopnik. Wearing a Tweed Ride-worthy ensemble, he notes his qualifications ("I was an art major at a respected community college") and gives a tour of his art collection, which includes a velvet Elvis painting. He also doles out this indispensable piece of wisdom: "If Michealangelo were alive today, he'd be creating action figures. Depend on it."
