LOVE the excitement about the song in the credits of In Vogue: The Editor’s Eye. Of course, up to this point it has been all about the owl. The octopus made a valiant attempt to snare the zeitgeist in its tentacles, but the owl has gone on and on. However, as more and more retailers appropriate this wise old bird for their nefarious ends, it can only be a matter of time before the owl jumps the shark.
These are memes for greater minds than mine to parse but, unlike the owl and the octopus, the butterlfy is an open book; almost anything can be about the butterfly, even if it is not a butterfly. It really is a Rorschach test. They don’t call it the butterfly efffect for nothing.
And in this random yet connected vein does anyone remember that Barbra Streisand ’70s folly The Butterfly? Instead of the to-be-expected butterfly, the cover showed a fly on butter. No less weirdly, the album featured covers of David Bowie’s “Life On Mars” and Bob Marley’s “Guava Jelly.” According to Wikipedia, it is her least favorite album. So there you have it. What should the cover for It’s All About the Butterfly be? Butter? A fly? Or?
