Looking into the forgotten crevices of popular culture.
Thursday, April 22, 2010
Well, it's Earth Day. The fortieth anniversary of the very first Earth Day, actually. You were expecting some type of nostalgic homage to TV's "Captain Planet and the Planeteers"? Not today. I'm not quite sure what to say about Earth Day, other than that I hope that the planet is around long enough for someone in his or her mid-30s to be posting nostalgic posts about 2010 twenty years from now, just like I do here in 2010 about 1990. We'll just have to wait and see.
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.
