“Lifestyle blogs often have a PC bent; it will be refreshing to have one for the rest of us.”
Speaking of which, welcome onboard! This is the place where we’ll be discussing movies, TV, music, the sort of food and tobacco products that would cause Michelle Obama and Michael Bloomberg to have a serious case of the vapors, and anything else that doesn’t fit into the rest of the PJM homepage or the Tatler. Not to mention the pop culture of the past, and the gadgets of the future. As you can see on this section’s homepage, you’ll be hearing from many of our PJM and PJTV all-stars on these topics.
And we’ll be having a fair amount of video and audio podcasts as well. First up, to give us a sense of the pop culture of the past and present, and the seismic shifts in the culture over the years is columnist, pioneering blogger and multimedia maven extraordinaire James Lileks:[audio:http://pjmedia.com/lifestyle/files/2011/07/20110710-PJM-ED.mp3]
James and I discuss:
- How much can you learn about a time and a place by observing its pop culture?
- What is the “Overculture” — and what is its current state of health?
- What an era’s fashions say about it.
- And Interior Desecrations, both then — and now.
