Reading Rainbow: Sex, Drugs, and Cocoa Puffs: A Low Culture Manifesto by Chuck Klosterman

Having recently read "Fargo Rock City" based on the recommendation (and lending of said book) of well-known Austin lover, KRD, I picked up "Sex, Drugs, and Cocoa Puffs" while perusing the sale racks at a bookstore while killing time. I won't go too in depth here about how great this book is, but if you are looking for a book that fleshes out the cultural importance of "Saved By The Bell"; examines the significance of cereal marketing to children; argues that the fame serial killers attain is more authentic than that of celebrities in general; asserts that Luke Skywalker within the confines of Empire Stikes Back was the blue-print for the GenXer; and compares Pamela Anderson's significance to Marilyn Monroe's once factoring in America's changing sexuality, and you want it to be laugh-out-loud funny, then this is your book.

If you know me at all, you know it's my kind of book.

YAY! I'm sitting at home in PDX clapping my hands together and saying YAY! out loud because I am so very, very happy that the gift of Klosterman has kept on giving.
