My opportunity to use the word ‘pussy’ in a post while still staying classy

Spencer Ackerman hits the jackpot writing an article fusing foreign policy (his regular job) with punk music (his musical preference). The subject is Pussy Riot a Russian punk band whose members conducted an improptu gig in a Russian cathedral mocking both Vladimir Putin and the church’s collaboration with him. Good for him to getting the opportunity to write it and good for Pussy Riot for making music (even pretty bad music) politically dangerous.

All of us here at TwShiloh await what, if anything this means for music in general.  I, for one, welcome anyone who can get us out of the auto-tuned, homogenized rut we currently find ourselves in.
