    want to engage. the silliness i can go without. there are multiple ways to view any cultural text, some are more accurate than others. and most--most certainly mine--can certainly be improved.

    people are so defensive about something as "silly" as popular culture. this tells us about its power. you should see how students react in one of my intro to cultural studies courses when I have them deconstruct Disney cartoons. The tears and anger. I like my job.

      I think it's just a bit off, like an alternative universe where Al Gore became president.  

      For example, they don't seem to have the word "zombie" and they don't ever seem to have encountered zombie movies.  

      You have exactly 10 seconds to change that look of disgusting pity into one of enormous respect!
