...Thanks to Parabasis columnist Anne Moore, I have discovered Antenna, a blog run out of the University of Wisconsin on all things television. It's a really, really good blog, and I highly recommend it to Parabasis readers.
Take this essay right here. It's about Miley Cyrus, something I couldn't care less about. But it held my interest and said some very smart things and covers a lot of thematically-related ground in its 1000 words.
Anyway, check 'em out! I think you'll be pleased.
