The wedding from Planet Excess is going the way of the American auto industry, says a story in the Washington Post. Which brings me, it just so happens, to a story about myself! I'm currently stuck in Seattle, where I attended a really great wedding on Saturday only to get stranded because of bad weather, so in the meantime I've spent some time reflecting on the genius of what I just witnessed. I've gone to a lot of weird weddings, namely because my friends, while not conventional or "regs" in any sense, are the types of people other people choose to mix gametes and spend whole lifetimes with, so I know how it's done. And you know what? I never thought I would really address the subject of weddings beyond the yo, check out the limitless capacity of late capitalism to create vital imperatives from invented frivolities and turn consumption into hard labor angle. But the truth is that anyone who cares about parties has an opinion about weddings, and in that vein I thought I would write some down.
