|Britney Spears Is A Punk Rocker
March 8, 2007 - Buzz Fugazi
Two front pages grabbed my attention yesterday.
The first belonged to the daily Chicago Tribune. I was grabbed by the headline and subhead: After Verdict, jurors call Libby ‘fall guy’/ Ex-Cheney aide guilty of perjury.
The second belonged to a tabloid I saw in passing as I ran through a supermarket checkout lane heading to the exit. The money was mine, legally obtained from the bank, any security chasing me was unarmed and the car was waiting just beyond the automatic door. I was in a big hurry. Despite being home sick, there’s precious little writing to show for it. I’ve been too sick to take advantage of being home sick. Yesterday, I merely felt lousy. It was a big improvement so the typewriter was screaming for attention. As I ran past the checkout lane I saw a picture and did a double-take to get another look. It looked like the cover of London Calling with the bassist from the Clash replaced by former mousketeer-turned-skinhead Britney Spears.
Judging strictly by the blown up cover photo, Ms. Spears, rather than selling softporn and pap, seems to be replacing giant eco footprint Al Gore as pop culture icon for the armchair suburban Ludite factions. She’s raging against the machine. If not smashing the state, she’s being practical and destroying whatever is at hand with whatever is at hand. She’s gone Trog on us all. While the multi-multi-mega-cyber-muffin theme music used to purr affectionately in harmony with her synthesized woo woo homage to the soulless three-fingered cartoon mouse droppings that delight children and child molesters everywhere, now they can only grab the final dollars off her rapidly declining soft porn marketability from the Ain’t White Trash An Awful Shame cutout bin. Teams of engineers and directors using the most advanced communication technology ever known to humanity link the New World Order together with a synchronized duet of Spears and zillionaire corpse/model Anna Nicole.
As for the Bush Administration compromising the national security of the United States for oddball political reasons, basing military operations in Iraq on a pack of lies… old news. Punkrock predicted it all 20 years before it happened.
Welcome to the club, Brit. You’re a reject now. You don’t want
to be friends with those assholes anyway. Join the MSIG
ARMY! Get a new band and tell them what to do with their
softporn and their mouse. Stay away from Kabbala until you’re
older and saner and you know better. Didn’t anyone from the
Tribe warn you? That stuff can make you crazy.
