One of my favorite blogpost genres is “here are two things that, for some reason, seem like they go together.” Chris Coldewey serves up a good one: a mural in NYC and a music video featuring Lady Gaga.
I haven’t been following L.G. at all, really, and while I’m not 100% enthusiastic about this video—it’s really just homage, and doesn’t push anything forward—I’m impressed by its over-the-top, throw-everything-at-the-camera fantasia. There are some indelible images in there.
