Long time, no see, eh, intothemuckers? After months of hiatus, trrrracey and I have finally agreed to quit with our respective reading lists (hers–feminist crap; mine–teen smut) and join together to read something of importance.

Well, insofar as Britney Spears and Chicken McNuggets are important.

That's right–we're reading Chuck Klosterman's new collection of culturally-significant drivel, IV: A Decade of Curious People and Dangerous Ideas. It's an easy read and a fun read, but Chuck has some pretty awesome theories about why the world of pop culture works the way it does, and he's not afraid to call bullshit on celebrities who think they can trust him.

So get to readin', friends. And don't forget to feel free to post any of your thoughts as you go along.

I really really appreciate the essay about anti-populism as pretend intellectualism. It's such a lazy way to form opinions- just going against the grain to feel superior. And I appreciate all his obscure references (Yngwie Malmsteen anyone? That's good fun.).
