Manifesto

Wednesday, July 27, 2005
Stephen King had an interesting column in Entertainment Weekly this week. Every few weeks he covers pop culture stuff and often I breeze through the article and by the time I'm done I've already forgotten it. This one stuck a little bit. He writes about what he likes in pop culture today and a lot of it resonated. He likes the classic country feel of Alan Jackson, but also the new "hick hop" of Cowboy Troy (country mixed with rap). With a parting shot at self important critics, he then closes the article with reference to Confederate Railroad's "Trashy Women" and that sold the entire article for me. It's been so long since I've heard that song and while not something I want to listen to every day, it's a nice tacky fun way to end.
