State of Affairs Versus the People’s Choice Awards, Part I

19 Nov

Welcome back dear readers.  Yes, it’s actually me – the prodigal son of State of Affairs has returned, albeit briefly, to titillate your hate-bone once again.

My good friend Lu Galasso of Inching Towards Mediocrity, who has generously donated his time in the past while doing guest posts for SoA, informed me this morning that voting has opened for this year’s People’s Choice Awards.  For the uninitiated, the PCAs are sort of a poor man’s Oscars, Grammies and Golden Globes rolled into one – with all the pomp and circumstance that entails, no doubt.  Reading through the nominations, we found (somewhat unsurprisingly) we share a mutual distaste for most things pop-culture.  And then, after a few whiskies, we got to thinking – hey!  We’re blog writers!  Blogs exist for the express purpose of inundating the internet with our jaded opinions!  Let’s do a post on the People’s Choice Awards and give people the serious skinny on what’s good and what sucks!

On that note, let me be the first to apologize for my spotty update schedule of late – I’ve been embroiled in some silliness recently that is on its way out the door as of now, so you can expect a return to the high standards of cynicism you’ve come to expect from old Uncle Alex.

Alice’s Adventures in Mediocrity

24 Jul

If you haven’t noticed yet, I have a very dark sense of – well, of everything, actually. I’m a bit of a cynic and my aesthetic tastes tend to reflect that disposition. So when I heard that a new film was being produced based on Lewis Carroll’s Alice novels, I did a very brief, very private happy dance – or at least I would have if I wasn’t too jaded to believe it would be any good.
