it was ok
Read in July, 2011

The sweeping generalizations and conclusive statements pretty much gut his theories on life, society, etc. all made through the prism of pop-culture. Might work better in in the context of fiction where a character can espouse these views, which feel like nothing more than than those of an intellectual who has devoted his life to reading to Entertainment Weekly, watching TV, smoking pot and making clever off the wall arguments for the sake of making clever, off the wall arguments. I'm pretty sure I can find those in any bar in any college town in America, but I'm even more sure That if i did, I would excuse myself after I finished my beer.

I chuckled here and there, but not enough give Klosterman another try, at least the non-fiction. I should add that I wanted to like this guy, but oh well.
