The phrase guilty pleasure has long outlived its usefulness.
If you really like a song or a movie or a TV show, no matter how cheesy the conventional wisdom says it is, you should feel free lopez to say so without guilt, and to defend your appreciation vigorously.
Thats one reason why I (and, judging by the number of comments, you as well) enjoy reading Mandi Bierlys. They get at how important entertainment really is in our lives, and they open the emotional floodgates for readers by reminding you of things youd forgotten you loved.
It was this sort of writing passionate discussion of things individual writers cared deeply about that marked the best of PopWatch for me in 2007. Whether or not you shared Michael Slezaks enthusiasm for. Fergie, or his appalled feelings over.
The Bachelor, you had to enjoy his writing about those subjects, maybe more than the subjects themselves. Same for Annie Barrett. And reality TV, or Adam Vary on, american Idol tapings and, transformers toys,.
Simon Vozick-Levinson on hip-hop, or Chris Willman on country music and, bruce Springsteen, or, marc Bernardin on sci-fi, or Whitney Pastorek foto on music festivals and indie film, or Ken Tucker on, friday Night Lights, and too many others to name. Looking back on my own writing this year, I found myself writing far too many obituaries we lost too many talented people in 2007, and its tough to sum up the lifes work of an artist you admire in two or three paragraphs punched out. (Credit here properly belongs to those who inspired.) I also got worked up writing about such issues as free expression, the hijacking of pop culture for partisan political purposes, and the war on film critics, all of which are, of course, linked.
That these continue to be issues of contention saddens me, and itspartly our fault as critics and journalists for not doing a better jobof explaining what the stakes are.
Thats why I am so grateful to havebeen part of PopWatch in 2007, to have a forum to raise such issues andstart a conversation.
So while I want to thank all the writers, editors, photo mavens, tech wizards, interns, and celebrity guest bloggers who helped put together PopWatch in 2007, I especially want to thankyou, the readers, for your lively, intelligent, and civil commentary. We posted nearly 2,500 blog items this year, and you responded withmore than 110,000 replies.
