cultural conservatism

  • Microwave popcorn is an abomination.
  • The heavy white Ma Bell rotary phone had better sound quality than anything I have used since.
  • Emotionally, I do not really believe in forms of winter heat which do not involve burning pieces of trees.
  • Nothing in the ill-advised, mythos-betraying prequels looked cooler than the costumes, muppets, and models of episodes IV-VI.
  • Religiously motivated vilification of Darwinism was more interesting when its foremost practitioners talked about Loch Ness and argued from Job that man had shared the earth with dinosaurs.
