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!

And third, nobody is going to accuse this blog of jumping on anybody’s bandwagon for the sake of page views while I’m in charge.

23 Nov

Welcome back to State of Affairs. For those of you who are regular followers of the blog, you will be pleased to hear I’ve got some big, big SoA news to announce very soon, but it’s taking a lot of work on my part, so my update schedule is going to stay a bit off-kilter for a while. In the meantime, I’m working on a mega-post for tomorrow that won’t be done by day’s end, so I thought I’d treat you to a little something from the archives. I wrote this piece exactly two years ago today, and it’s just as relevant now as it was then. So without further ado, take a little trip with Uncle Alex, the Ghost of Bitching Past.
