And now it's no more Open Source Boobs, it's the Miley Cyrus In A Bedsheet Show! [Apr. 29th, 2008|12:25 pm]

This is, from what I can tell, generating more noise and light than the FLDS swamp and way more than the horrifying Austrian report about the sick bastard who kept his daughter locked in a basement for 24 years and fathered seven kids with her. The main trend in what I'm hearing: blame Annie Liebowitz. At this rate they'll have Liebowitz up on pedophile and child porn charges by the end of the day.

The bottom line here is, again...nobody thought this through properly. I'm not going to stand up and defend the picture, either -- it's certainly a nice shot, and a very typical example of Liebowitz' work -- because I do think it was kind of inappropriate, mainly in terms of its timing. If this was two years from now (when Cyrus may not even have the career momentum she does now) it would be less of a problem. It's given the bluenoses yet another cause to squeal over, certainly. However, it's no more inappropriate than a lot of teen idol imagery, and has more to recommend than much. And let's not even get into the pre-teen arena, because I really don't feel like getting ill.

This is a royally fucked up world. Things are tearing apart all over the places, bloody havoc is being committed, the planet's coming apart at the seams...and this inspires hair-tearing and chest-beating and rending of garments across the land?
