New Stuff This Week

Yeah yeah, New Stuff is getting posted a day earlier than usual. Now you can plan your weekend early, around what you’re going to come in and buy.

One thing’s for sure, tomorrow night (Sat 4/23) Dr. Chris Smit, who wrote the book The Exile of Britney Spears: A Tale of 21st Century Consumption (Intellect/University of Chicago Press), will be here at 7pm. Just in time for Britney Spears’ new album, Dr. Smit’s book illustrates the American popular culture’s thirst for—and complicity in—celebrity disgrace. And oh yeah, how we consume culture and puke it out when we’re done.
