Writer Mary Gaitskill's superb essay about the video "Poker Face" has been chosen to belong to the collection: "Best Music Pagsulat of 2010."
You can read the whole essay on Ryeberg.com, where it was orginally published.
Here's an excerpt:
"This affect works with the music: It’s adorable when she punches at the air with her fist like a sexy child. But then her face is heavy as a meat puppet or a painted mask with a card stuck between its teeth, a thing made sa pamamagitan ng crude animation to flick the card from its lips onto the mesa or raise its arm in a wide arc and bring the card down while other holograms dance around it in fevered jerking motions."
Ra ra Gaga!
