Become what you are

I had been under the impression that the leather kilt was made famous by Kimye. However, a google search reveals Axl Rose wearing the leather. Yet another strike against Kimye!

Egyptian street posh (i.e., neo-dandyism) is a vital weapon against the medieval monotheism.

From Emailgate in America (Hillary Clinton) to Kitchengate in England (Ed Miliband). Can contemporary journalism sink any lower than this?

Re alleged misandry: Men hate other men, and often kill each other wantonly. Why then should men care whether women hate them.

Making little headway and facing the wrath of the Greek electorate, the new government has reached the point of desperation (see Nikos Paraskevopoulos’s reference to German “war reparations”). Greece is looking for any excuse to default.

From afar (NYC), Mr Farage sounds like an extremist. He appears to stand in a long line of politicians who willingly demonise a minority of the population in order to gain political power. In other words, he seeks British unity through the promotion of division. Quite the paradox. On this side of the pond, he would be indistinguishable from the Palins, Bachmanns, Huckabees, etc.

The Napster generation (e.g., Kim Dotcom, Pharrell etc.) thinks piracy is OK. Arr!

City’s full

It has probably already been mentioned before but isn’t there something ironic about a voluntarily celibate man (Pope Francis) decrying the “selfishness” of those who choose not to have children.

Kanye West unveiled his new line of zombie couture at New York Fashion Week.

David Carr was the last great American journalist: not posh, worldly, insightful.

The Devil is quite an attractive character, it is doubtful He will leave the stage of the human imagination anytime soon. I rather enjoyed the depiction of the Devil as a dandy in the film “Constantine” (although, technically He’s credited as Satan).

I take Constantine’s Devil/Satan as a dandy because of the white suit and the rakish display of tattoo creeping above the shirt collar. I wouldn’t quibble if one called Him a popinjay though.

The glamorous life

The only time Kanye West was right about fashion was when he donned the leather kilt.

The existence of Babymetal demonstrates there might yet be hope for Japan. An old Situationist like Malcolm McClaren would have enjoyed Babymetal. And tried to make money from it.

Mark Zuckerberg was upset (at 21:38) by the film The Social Network. Even billionaires get hurt.

Taylor Swift is a leading light of post-third wave feminism (joined by Lena Dunham, Keira Knightley, Emma Watson, and Beyoncé).
