Girl Power with garters? In this case, it’s a match — a marketing-manufactured match, given that both sides of this equation owe more to hype than to actual quality.

Which brings to mind a particularly telling Chris Rock joke from his movie I Think I Love My Wife (I’m paraphrasing from memory, since I can’t find the exact quote online):

“I’m buying records in a record store, while I still can. With Starbucks selling music, pretty soon you’ll have to go to a liquor store to buy gangsta rap CDs!”
