Several years back we had Peder Zane of the N&O Lifestyles section viewing downtown Raleigh in overtly sexual overtones. And now?
Meet David Menconi.
Earlier this year, he wrote of the Michael Buble concert:
"A couple of songs in, Bublé did a comedic monologue that was surprisingly salty, with a couple of F-bombs and flip-offs (although they were so good-natured, it was hard to imagine anybody taking offense)."
Yes, what parent would take offense at some F-bombs?
Menconi writes about the Lady Gaga concert:
"Over-the-top show borders on brilliant." "The show drew a packed house of people dressed for the occasion in remarkably elaborate gender-bending costumes..." "Like lady M, Gaga espouses self-empowerment and sexuality as sacrament, in a cultural context of gay-friendly androgyny." "During the latter song, flames began shooting from her naughty bits. It was brilliant"
Seems like all that's missing is a few good natured f-bombs. I guess flames "shooting from her naughty bits" is good natured as well beyond being brilliant.
Oh yeah and calling the Wake County Board of Education racists as well.
