In partnership with the new fiction publishing platform Liberty Island, PJ Lifestyle is going to begin promoting and co-hosting a series of debates and discussions about popular culture. The goal is to figure out what works and what doesn’t so that in the future we can promote and create better fiction and culture of our own. These are public brainstorming sessions for writers and culture advocates interested in developing a more vibrant popular culture. You’re invited to submit your answers to any of these questions — or a related one of your own! — that interests you:

A) in the comments

B) Via email to PJ Lifestyle editor Dave Swindle.

C) at your blog, then let us know in the comments or via email. 

The most interesting answers may be linked, crossposted, or published at PJ Lifestyle. Also check out Monday’s question “How Did Your Music Tastes Change As You Grew Older?,” Tuesday’s provocation  ”What Are the Most Overrated Beatles Songs?,” Wednesday’s “Which Classical Music Recordings Do You Listen to The Most?,” yesterday’s “What Is the Most Under-appreciated Beatles Song?“ and last week’s writing prompts: 5 Geek Questions To Provoke Debates About the Future of Sci-Fi and Fantasy.

PJ Lifestyle Pop Culture Debates Features a new prompt each weekday to weigh the good, the bad, the overrated, the unbelievable, and the amazing throughout the worlds of books, film, and TV. We can't figure out how to build a greater pop culture until we dissect the mess we already have. Want to contribute your perspective to the debate?

As P.J. O'Rourke once pointed out, “If you say a modern celebrity is an adulterer, a pervert and a drug addict, all it means is that you've read his autobiography.”

Any aged rock-'n'-roller will suffice. Take your pick. They should have retired years and years ago, especially that wrinkled, that rut-faced, that double-ugly group, the Rolling Stoned. Perpetual juvenile delinquents.

Back in the mid-80's there was a Nordic black metal band called Mayhem.
The band members committed acts of arson, suicide, cannibalism, murder, and they were big in their time.

This topic has all the appeal of driving to Skid Row to stare at bums.

Most of those mentioned above are less disturbing than annoying.
