It is E!'s #15 Reason the 90's ruled that has made me question my quest to systematically dissect the lowest forms of popular culture into a sort of fetal pig of sociology. Am I kidding myself? Is there neither rhyme nor reason to it? Can it be that it is all just shit?
The #15 Reason the 90's Ruled: The 90's was Paris Hilton-free. She was a preteen debutante, merrily coking herself up unbeknownst to the public. People, FHM, Maxim, Vogue--none of these magazines had slaughtered trees in her honor. And yet, eighty-six individual aspects somehow defined an entire decade less than this abstract "absence of aspect"; only fourteen things defined it more.
Does E! have some code of programming akin to the Dollar Bill Rule of newspaper publication? One series, five installments, and you guys only managed to last FOUR before bringing her up again? Fuck you, E!.
