Transmedial Inauguration

There has to be something to criticize, the man cannot be perfect! In this otherwise lovely photo there is, my friends, evidence of two grave sartorial faux pas.

BHO's dinner jacket has notched lapels. This is not comme il faut, a DJ must have either peaked lapels or a shawl collar! (Oh dear, my age is showing... for my daughter a DJ is someone who plays records in a club. But I do prefer the term 'dinner jacket' to 'tuxedo'.)

And a white bow tie is only ever worn with tails!

Onward! Rocketboom's episode embedded below evokes well the transmediality of the Inauguration, which the Guardian also covers here.
