All right, it’s not so much madness as it is rampant consumerism run wild the day after we’re supposed to give thanks for all the stuff we already have.
However…it is the day after a holiday, and PopCult‘s readership is always low on this day, plus I’m still a bit tryptophaned-out from a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner for two at home, which has become the the tradition of late for your cocooning PopCulteer and his lovely wife, so this is going to be a really, really short post.
No way in hell am I going out shopping today. I will leave that to the young and foolish.
This weekend brings a couple of marathons to The AIR. The AIR is PopCult’s sister radio station. You can hear these shows on The AIR website, or just click on the embedded player at the top right column of this blog if you’re reading on a desktop and your Firefox Browser isn’t acting like a jerk.
Starting Friday at 10 AM we are going to run a marathon of every episode of Mel Larch’s MIRRORBALL, which will wrap up Saturday at midnight. Of course, this is only natural because, as everybody knows, the day after Thanksgiving is officiall the start of Disco Season, as all the kids start singing traditional Disco songs and the networks show specials like “A Charlie Brown Disco” and “Rudolf The Disco-Dancing Reindeer.”
Some folks will even rush to put up their Disco tree.
Anyway, that’s most of Friday and all of Saturday, and then at midnight Saturday Radio Free Charleston takes over for a 24-hour marathon, which isn’t quite as big a deal, since the show is three hours now and that’s only eight episodes.
This is all to give your PopCulteer a little break as he heads into the final entries of The 2021 PopCult Gift Guide, which will wrap up next week. Speaking of said Gift Guide, later on Friday check back for five more gift suggestions with the theme “Ghost of Christmas Past,” as we dig into the PopCult Archives and recommend five cool gift ideas that we told you about in previous years, which are all still available, and still great gift ideas.
And come back over the weekend for our regular features. Your PopCulteer always offers up fresh content every day, even when it means working Thanksgiving night when he’d rather be napping.
