The Hoard Potato: The Words You Read, The Songs You Sing...  
You know, in my last post, I linked to last year's tirade about Alvin and the Chipmunks. I should have gone ahead and quoted the best insight from the comments on that older post, courtesy of circuit_four, since it really gets to the heart of the matter:

"A lot of this pop-culture purism is just people clinging to their own generation's nostalgia -- and I'm not really comfortable, myself, with how much of that nostalgia was hand-chosen for us by commercial interests."


Amen.


Now, if you'll excuse me, I need to order my tickets for Star Trek.
 
 
I feel: blankblank

Let me know how Trek is, if you would. As itself, as a remake of old Trek, and as Brain-Numbed Pointless Explosion Escapism. Thanks!
