Elle: Shoulder Woulda Coulda

Elle PSD
In a stunning deconstruction of the neodynamic of consumer culture, Elle magazine reifies the nowness – and overarching implausibility – of Lady Gaga’s armpit to emphasize the detachability of her arm and, by implication, the detachment of postmodern modes of avoir-fromage; the stark contrast of one arm literally textualized in comparison with its counterpart – photoshopped to merry hell – provides a dyspeptic vision of modality that itself resonates across [continued p94]

Let’s establish some ground rules here. You can either say a missing reflection is deliberate, or that someone is convincingly boating around in an upturned beach umbrella. You can’t have both.

On the other hand, if this is a calculated attempt to get onto PsD then I salute you, sir.

Thanks to Ryan! Original is here!

PES Soccer: World Keepy Uppy Champion

Pro Evolution Soccer – not to be confused with Atheists Will Burn In Hell Soccer – obviously sees some sort of competitive advantage in shorter, stumpier legs for players. Who are we to judge? Oh, right.

Oh, what a disappointment! So it wasn’t that Messi is good, it’s that all his rivals are crippled! by Nuri

It is called Pro EVOLUTION Soccer for a reason — they are footballers who have evolved into something else. Although they look like pretty awful footballers now they have evolved shorter legs! by Avoura

Wgate: Demi Moore, Demi Anja Rubik

Wgate Demi Moore PSD
OK, already, enough, here’s the Demi Moore W cover.

While most of your submissions were about Ms Moore’s hip position – something Jezebel picked up on, a greater conspiracy is in the offing: Pop Culture Madness thinks it’s a body swap with Anja Rubik. NY Mag reports on the conspiracy, but doesn’t really endorse it. The Huffington Post, on the other hand, goes full Glenn Beck.

For the record, I don’t believe it’s a PsD, or a body swap, and that there’s nothing wrong with her hip. Yes, it’s been retouched, but it isn’t a disaster. I don’t usually* post non-PsDs but this will hopefully reduce the flood of mail I’ve had.

Either way, Happy Thanksgiving.

*quiet down in the back please.
