For the second week in a row, your humble PSO hosts have chosen violence. We’re drunk with power!
We’re not quite done on the whole AOC Met Gala brouhaha just yet. Having assessed the imagecraft skills of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s “TAX THE RICH” gown at the Met Gala in a post earlier this week, we’re returning to the subject to respond to how the story has evolved in the days since, where this moment sits in relation to Met Gala red carpet history, and some criticisms about the stunt that we’ve had some time to consider. This leads into a further discussion on how politicized the Met Gala has become generally and how the public largely misunderstands the “theme” conversation.
Having stuck our feet directly in the fire, we opted to pour a little more gasoline on the flames and wade into the Harry and Meghan discourse once again. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were named one of the Time 100 and they posed for a decidedly odd cover for the magazine. We wade into why it doesn’t work and why we think Harry was making some very deliberate choices as to how he would like them presented. As per the uzh, people overreacted wildly to it and largely misinterpreted it.
Just us, working our particular corner on Zeitgeist Avenue, darlings. Come stop by and say hi!
