Trust me, I’m recommending this break from a place of love and understanding.
Well, we may not have written much in 2013 but that hasn’t stopped you guys!
As usual, your almost impossibly high level of discourse and repartee have kept this site ferociously alive and brimming with the electricity of rhetoric.
As such, your top 12 comments of the year.
What happens when David Simon Cowell and I emerged from our recent hibernation to discuss the lazy abomination that is Grantland’s obituary for the very much alive David Bowie?
One person who adores David Bowie and one person who doesn’t really have a dog in that race!
We use the word “inarguable” a surprisingly high number of times, given that we are in the midst of an argument!
And David Simon Cowell writes more words for this blog than he has in the last year combined! Who can fucking resist that?
Pop Culture Has AIDS isn’t a lecture. It isn’t a monologue. It’s not a polemic or a soliloquy. It’s a conversation.
This blog is as much yours as it is ours, and you guys are what makes this a great place to live, work and write. You are the reason we do this. David Simon Cowell and I like to say that we have the best commenters on the Internet, and we often spend our limited time together poring through the comments section, letting you spark discussions and ideas and the best kind of intellectual fulfillment.
This is your time to shine. We turn the spotlight to you for the very best comments of the year on Pop Culture Has AIDS. Take a bow, you beautiful creatures. You’ve earned it.
Hey, y’all, what’s up? Has it really been three months? Wow, time flies when you’re… well, we’ll get to that.
I know that P.C.H.A. nation has been in an uproar since my unannounced disappearance. Don’t worry… the long national nightmare is over. Here’s what happened… The Dilemma came to me and said that he was a bit worried that I was shouldering a bit too much of the load (really, I think that he was worried that my productivity was making him look bad). So, he suggested (insisted, really) that I take a sabbatical to recharge my batteries. But now that the Fall Pop Culture High Season is in full effect, the time has come for P.C.H.A. to become whole again.
So, what have I been up to? Glad you asked.
You’ve gotta give Julius Caesar some credit. Jesus may have outlasted the Roman Empire with Christianity, but more than two thousand years after the pagan warrior’s death, the date of his assassination is still well known enough for George Clooney to name a mediocre movie after it. While Caesar failed to treat the Ides of March with the kid gloves he was warned to, maybe we should in this Final Year of Civilization, especially given what’s already transpired in the first half of March (otherwise known as the annual David Simon Cowell sabbatical):
While Pop Culture Has AIDS didn’t quite go dark to protest SOPA this week, make no mistake that we’re on board with those that did. Instead, we’ll do what we do best: post an angry screed about somebody who’s just the worst.
Growing up in the fabled urban jungle of Connecticut, Christopher Dodd was often viewed as the “Good Senator,” with Joe Lieberman filling the role of the heavy. While we were obviously right about Lieberman — the guy’s a sad joke — we didn’t realize that Dodd was on Lieberman’s team of baddies all along.
Now, as “Hollywood’s chief lobbyist,” the head of the MPAA, Dodd is continuing a streak of corporate servitude that began in the Senate.
