    " Okay, so I would just like to say that Chuck Klosterman isn't really the next literary messiah, and that the post-modern/post-internet (misguided) impulse to deify certain forms of popular culture might conflate him to canonical status. But, as a self-proclaimed "smart-kid" thriving among media saturation, I do admire his staunch disaffection in the face of celebrity degradation, as well as his willingness to declare that U2 never actually sold-out, they just learned how to turn the ability to make money into the ability to determine your own destiny. Lucky for us Bono feels his destiny is to make the world better. Regardless of how you feel about the importance of Culture (be it high, low, popular, or vulgar), Chuck Klosterman reminds us that it is simply there, it will always be there, and that it is up to us to choose how to co-exist with it. "

    " This is a pretty male-oriented book. I'm not a huge fan, but the writing is good and Klosterman presents interesting ideas. "

    " Frankie loaned me this book while I was in Chile. It was weird reading about N. American pop culture in South America. I wrote Chuck Klosterman a post card from Valparaiso. He has yet to write back. "
