Retroactive Blogging...

I just read this in the most recent Lefsetz Letter. It's one of many random e-mails from readers he publishes every now and again...

Did you happen to catch "The World Series of Pop Culture" on VH-1? I watched theentire run on Saturday, testing my own knowledge. They had a category, "partylike it's 2006." The idea was the host would read some lyrics to "hit songs"from just last year and the contestants had to name the song. Six questions,back and forth. Neither contestant could answer any of them. Neither could I. By the 5th question's end, which means two people said "I have no idea"/"I don'tknow" ten times, the host said, "doesn't anyone listen to radio anymore?"" I almost jumped off my couch, screaming, "NO!!! They don't!!!" It was kind of an amazing moment, though, and apparently the only time a category - where people of all ages know the most obscure and random pop culture information - has been shut out 0 to 0 in this event. It speaks volumes, and I thought you'd find that interesting, since it relates to so much of what you write about.

I saw this very episode (if my wife and I were contestants on this show we'd smoke all those other pretenders to the trivia throne) and I thought the exact same thing. Couldn't identify a single contemporary lyric and I'm a guy that listens and memorizes lyrics like a tape recorder. There are three reasons we all couldn't indentify the songs those lyrics came from: Broadcast radio blows, today's pop music and modern hip hop blows, and lastly, the undeniable fact that rock is dead.

Rock is dead, long live rock!

I wonder if anybody in the industry is taking away any learnings from this - probably not.

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
Generic [url=]Viagra 100mg pills[/url] is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.

Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
