Tragically Hysterical


Cultural appropriation by cats

I can’t believe I have to write about “cultural appropriation” again/now/anymore. But as another Clinton veers toward the White House, and a new Blair Witch movie debuts, why shouldn’t the Permanent Floating Nineties Revival embrace the other accoutrements of that decade, especially the asphyxiating political correctness that never did go out of style?

And why did we blithely presume it would?

    I really like the pic of El Gato. Maybe Pip should start wearing hats?

    Sadly I believe what Lionel Shriver really means is that writers should internalize all that left wing nonsense to the point where it would never occur to them do such a thing.

    I hate to pile-onto the Tragically Hip, but gosh, if they had any good songs, I mean really good songs, I would know of them.
    They are an obscure “local band”.

      dementia ,a far crueler way to go

      Cut to them while watching CFL during commercials. What of waste of time!

    • As my brother-in-law put it, they tried hard to be a Canadian band. The Guess Who, for example, simply acted themselves.
