Looking into the forgotten crevices of popular culture.

Off Duty VIII
Several weeks ago, I posted a review and commentary of Werner Herzog's 2005 documentary, Grizzly Man, which tells the tale of Timothy Treadwell, a self professed savior of bears who was mauled to death by those he was trying to save in 2003. During the course of writing that piece, I had contacted Dr. Franc Fallico, Alaska's chief medical examiner and the coroner who performed the autopsy on Treadwell. In Herzog's film, Fallico provided a particularly dramatic interview to Herzog on Treadwell's last moments. Recently, I received Dr. Fallico's response to my interview request. Accordingly, I have updated the original post to feature the unedited Q&A with him (which you can find if you scroll down to the last part of the posted article).
Thirty-something suffering from nostalgia but, thankfully, not from bouts of irony. Here, I will revisit artifacts of popular culture not sufficiently explored elsewhere, though I may perhaps stray from that mission at times.
