Looking into the forgotten crevices of popular culture.

Happy Birthday, Slicing Up Eyeballs.
The far, far better nostalgia blog, Slicing Up Eyeballs, is, as of yesterday, one year old. (See here for the site's very first introductory post, aptly titled "Welcome to the Occupation," published February 20, 2009, and here for its own anniversary coverage, which ran yesterday.). The site had its first string of initial substantive posts one year ago today, on February 21, 2009, including pieces on Sonic Youth's then upcoming album and the possibility of a Replacements reunion (which alas, does not seem to be in cards). Happy Birthday, Eyeballs. Keep up the stellar work.
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.
