Southern Cross.


There's a motif popping up lately that combines Nazi symbols with those of the Confederacy. At the Assume Vivid Astro Focus show on Saturday one of the day's performers was wearing swastika pasties made of tape and Confederate flag panties. Last month at No Fun Fest I picked up an amazing sonic collaboration between Prurient and ffh, Women In The War. The stunning packaging is an obsessive exploration of the same theme. Seriously. Our times so totally SUCK.

It's SO not okay. Did you see this bit in the NYTimes?:

Y'know, I saw that when the Times first posted it. Seeing that headline again . . . it looks like a fake headline for the Onion. But it's not. It's what it is and it's scary. People are idiots. Not to repeat myself, but . . . Our times SO suck.
