new blog idea

I came up with an idea for a blog called “Commercial Curmudgeon.”  In it, I would post random TV commercials and mercilessly criticize them (and by extension, offer my critique of American consumerism and pop culture).  I’m sure something like this already exists on the web, I just haven’t found it yet.

  1. Well, there’s a blog I’d read! Adbusters is a bit like that, but with more political agenda than I think you intend. Thomas Frank and others used to have a quarterly magazine called “The Baffler” that was a fairly erudite form of what you are talking about. They particularly decried the cooptation of “authentic” cultural matter (particularly countercultural stuff) by corporate America.
