« Paradise in Hot Contention, Possibly Lost [by Jennifer Michael Hecht] | Main | This just in . . . a terrible loss for Amy Lemmon and for all of us. »

September 02, 2010


Couldn't agree more! I mean I had a similar reaction to seeing this month's cover of Vanity Fair. Truly I can't think of any other word to describe Lady Gaga besides awesome, but at this point it feels like decades ago that I was in Spain getting down to "Pokerface," or ignoring my tapas and Irish and Algerian friends as I stood transfixed while the "Bad Romance" video played in the background. Spain's obsession with the '80s aside, and pardon my French, but WTF! Shouldn't we expect more from Vanity Fair? They have all those unbelievably talented writers who can cover whatever is most cutting edge in society broken up by the glossiest Gucci ads this side of Vogue, and we have to wait until September 2010 to get a Gaga cover. COME ON is spot on. Once it's breaking news that Jerry Seinfeld is throwing a temper tantrum about showing your bra in his box in the new Yankee Stadium can you still be considered avant-garde?

PS. Love Paul Muldoon, just love him. Lady Gaga too!

on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness

"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark
