Word dropped today that the crown princess of vegan fashion (McCartney) will team up with longtime in-your-face activist and original emo crooner (Morrissey) for a men’s vegan shoe line. According to McCartney, “we are still in the early stages, but the shoes could be launched next year.” I hope you like Hush Puppies.
All kidding aside, one of the things I have been working on, personally, and am hoping is reflected in this blog, is being more supportive. And this is no doubt a commendable effort. I am a little skeptical of Morrissey, not because he’s not awesome, but simply because I don’t think he’s that popular anymore, and I wonder how much reach he will have. Then again, I am not privy to fashion, high society, or anything very glamorous for that matter. So maybe Morrissey is well-to-do in those circles. Worst case scenario, maybe some of the whitest kids you’ve ever known will buy some of these kicks.
In any case, I echo the Smith’s song – “Meat is Murder!” Don’t let that ten ton truck crash into you, kids.
