Sex, Drugs and Cocoa Puffs

Book of the day. Well, actually, yesterday.

Chuck is a writer for SPIN, which I can forgive in light of this pretty decent set of essays he put together. Chuck likes to “deconstruct” pop culture and uses the word “postmodern” a lot but I can forgive those things too. Mostly this book is funny as hell and has a lot of great screeds including some of the following topics:

  • Why the Pam and Tommy Sex tape is not sexy at all
  • The exclusionary nature of Sugar-Based breakfast cereals
  • Why soccer is stupid and should be outlawed
  • The nature of cover/tribute bands such as “Paradise City”
  • And much more…

A great read in a day and the Santa Monica library has it on the shelf (or they will when I return it). Checkit.
