In the process of belatedly adding a new LJ friend charliegrrrl
, I belatedly stumbled upon this feature
magazine. It's a blast, though I winced at the reference to Bad Subjects
. Annalee is right, to an extent. There has always been a little too much academia in its pages. But I also can't help but hear the strange-mixture of bravado and insecurity of the former academic in her characterization. There's a difference, after all, between "academic" and "pretentious." Plenty of those who go pop lapse into pretentiousness from time to time. Then again, maybe it's good to have a little pretense from time to time.
