Consuming Crap Culture: Worth The Guilt?

Alex McCown considers the question of whether we should feel guilty spending our time consuming crap culture by the likes of Miley Cyrus (pictured). “There are dozens of better options out there, but [crap] is cheap, easy, and we know what we’re getting. It doesn’t challenge, inspire, or ask anything of us at all beyond our fleeting attention span. We know there are better things out there.” Here’s my fuddy-duddy reply: Sometimes, we don’t want to think or feel and for those moments Miley and her like should require no guilt in the enjoyment. At the same time, if this is the only music you ever listen to then you’re slowing self-medicating yourself into inanity.
