"Is Nothing Sacred?"
"Oh great. Victoria Beckham is writing a blog. That just cheapens the entire thing; we don’t want to be a part of a club that would have her as a member.
According to People:
For the past few months, the former Posh Spice has been penning small missives to fans on her Web site, www.dvbstyle.com. In her latest post, titled "Greetings from L.A.," she gushes about moving to Los Angeles later this year, where her soccer star husband David will play for the L.A. Galaxy.
[Translator's note: PLEASE click the link below. And I just hope the "Bang and Olufsen" titled clip is still playing.
Is this self-promotion? Or is Posh Spice engaged in some kind of complicated, super-ironic self parody? She's mike-ed. Check the bunny ears by the store clerk or passer by at the beginning. And the spill?
And I swear Mrs. Beckham almost walked right into that door. And who's the smoker, by the door, who is so remarkably unengaged by the "action?"]
'I've been so touched by the support from all the people we've met," she writes. "People in the street have been calling out things like 'Welcome home, we're so excited you're here.' That has been fantastic, and one of the best things about this trip.'
This entire madness over the Beckhams moving to LA is getting obnoxious..."
Me, I think it's an interesting twist on meta this 'n' that -- commercialism, imperialism...vapidness wrapped in an enigma with a fish taco.
(another shot at a soccer revival at a time when video games are so g'dam real there's no need to watch t.v., anyone?...)
