Access of Evil

Hello, I'm Tamara Palmer -- my friends call me Teemoney. I'm a writer/editor/DJ from the San Francisco Yay Area. Mr. Smooth has kindly asked me to be a guest blogger here, which is an honor, and I can assure dear readers that he's given me a tough set of standards and practices to adopt in my posts. . .

Thought I'd start off today with something that really makes my bile boil, especially after the recent KKKramer drama. Two 13-year-old twin girls who call themselves Prussian Blue are at number four in the Billboard charts this week for selling 91K copies of an album called End of a Black World.

(thanks to stic.man of dead prez for pointing this out, as well as this background story that follows)

Young Singers Spread Racist Hate
Duo considered the Olsen Twins of the White Nationalist Movement

They may remind you of another famous pair of singers, the Olsen Twins, and the girls say they like that. But unlike the Olsens, who built a media empire on their fun-loving, squeaky-clean image, Lamb and Lynx are cultivating a much darker personna. They are white nationalists and use their talents to preach a message of hate. . .

[EDIT: Turns out this is a hoax, and I am so glad! I had a nagging voice in the back of my head that said to check the actual charts, but I didn't. But let me just say that I'd rather look silly for falling for this than to actually have it be true. My faith in humanity remains.]
