Got a gig to review the L. Gaga concert in Dallas. I'll probably also do a post on it/her; but 'til then, here are some vizis. (Sorry for the audio distortion; it was v. loud.)

One of her more interesting statements was along the lines of,

There's something heroic about the way my fans operate their cameras. So precisely, so intricately, and so proudly. Like Kings writing the history of their people. Its their prolific nature that both creates and procures what will later be perceived as the "kingdom." So, the real truth about Lady Gaga fans, my little monsters, lies in this sentiment: They are the kings. They are the queens. They write the history of the kingdom, and I am something of a devoted Jester. It is in the theory of perception that we have established our bond. Or, the lie, I should say, for which we kill. We are nothing without our image. Without our projection. Without the spiritual hologram of who we perceive ourselves to be, or to become rather, in the future.

When you're lonely, I'll be lonely too. And this is The Fame.
(Text from Gagapedia.)

This statement raises lots of interesting issues for the "reality-based community." For now, here's hoping she acts further to preserve our alleged kingship, which is now threatened by opponents of net neutrality, among other things.
