On My Mind

This is why no one takes "Ice Dance" seriously. It is also proof that political correctness has still to be invented in Russia. In fact, it's probably one of the few examples to prove that maybe we give political correctness too hard a time, you know. Sometimes there are some pretty good reasons to be "correct", politically speaking.

I know this story is about three months too old and has been sitting in the back of the media fridge for so long it has passed mould/fungus states and gone straight to Penicillin but it's still on my mind. Nagging me. Saying, "How on Earth, could anyone ever think, hey this is good. This is working." Not just in like your own home, or for a private party, but you know, out in a public performance. It would not surprise in the least if this couple performed in Germany in a mash-up of "Diary of Anne Frank/Marriage of Eva Braun" to Edith Piaf's La Vie en Rose whilst wearing full SS/Nazi uniforms including the stylish leather boots and jodpurs, claiming historically accurate themes are their wheelhouse.

Yup. There's a time and a place to be politically correct and this is it.
