PJ Lifestyle Pop Culture Debates!


May 20, 2014 - 2:00 pm

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 the previous weeks’ writing prompts: 5 Geek Questions To Provoke Debates About the Future of Sci-Fi and Fantasy5 Controversial Questions To Inspire Spirited Debates About Music.

Chris Queen: Alabama’s Back… And It ‘Feels So Right’

Chris Queen: Why Are There So Many Country Music Awards Shows?

This week we’re talking about music genres. What debate questions do you want to see featured next?

Updated: An email received from Jim M.:

I’m not writing to criticize. Those are some fine artist (videos/songs) that were included in the post. All worthy of inclusion.

I only thought I’d write to mention a very dark horse, Workingman’s Dead by the Grateful Dead.

Some of the finest bluegrass south, north, or west of the Mason-Dixon.
And I’m neither a Deadhead nor a big Country music guy.

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?
