Eating the Dinosaur, by Chuck Klosterman

I really love reading Klosterman’s essays, and this is a great collection, as always. Includes essays on:

  • the similarities between David Koresh & Kurt Cobain
  • the impossibility (and merits) of time travel — only real reason to do it is if you want to have dinosaur for dinner)
  • the way the public reacts to high profile failures like Ralph Samson
  • a polemic against laugh tracks
  • and then lots of stuff about Abba, as per normal for Klosterman

Great, fun, smart book, and insightful about our modern media culture.
