Inebriated Friends #1


Here are some links to things that we like:

Following up on my post about Young Money and post-modernity, here is a fantastic Jamesonesque Marxist analysis of Lil B as symptom of late capitalism.  I had a feeling someone had written this before I'd seen it and I'm glad that they did.

While we're on the topic of pop music, there's a careful investigation of the role of empty center that Britney Spears plays on the Billboard Charts over at Hooded Utilitarian.  Thought provoking and fairly discouraging.

A series about Pokemon theme songs by our good friend Jacob on the blog of our good friends Ashley and Andreas.  A well-written and mildly traumatizing trip down memory lane.

In keeping with the high-flown, slightly overreaching video game writing that's been going on, here are a few more Tim Rogers posts, these ones about Earthbound and Shadow of the Colossus.

In keeping with nothing (but fascinating nonetheless!), here's a response to the Werner Herzog documentary Encounters at the End of the World written by an interview subject in that movie.

Here's an old video about Charlie Rose that fills me with dread.

Next up, our first installment of "Don't Drink This"
