Pop Culture: A Working Definition


c>log
Popular culture (or pop culture) is the widespread cultural elements in any given society that are perpetuated through that society’s everyday language. It comprises the daily interactions, needs, desires and cultural moments that make up the everyday lives of the mainstream.

Pop culture can include any number of practices, including those pertaining to cooking, clothing, consumption, mass media and the many facets of entertainment such as sports and literature. Popular culture often contrasts with a more exclusive, even elitist “high culture”, that is, the culture of ruling social groups.

*



Pop culture finds its expression in the mass circulation of items from areas such as fashion, music, sport and film. The world of pop culture has had a particular influence on art from the early 1960s on, through Pop Art. When modern pop culture began during the early 1950s, it made it harder for adults to participate. Today, most adults, their kids and grandchildren participate in pop culture directly or indirectly.

Led Zeppelin Catalog Now Available!


Led Zeppelin. A name that’s probably been scrawled onto notebooks, carved into park benches, and spray-painted on walls more than any other. The name came from Who drummer Keith Moon’s idea that the group would sink like a lead balloon. Indeed they would create something heavy, but it wouldn’t sink – it would set the model for the ultimate rock band in the years to follow. Guitarist Jimmy Page, bassist John Paul Jones, and singer Robert Plant, and drummer John Bonham united to become the most deified rock band of the ’70s, embodying excess, reinventing FM radio, and writing music that made you want to move your feet, shake your fists, bang your head, and basically act like a rock ‘n’ roll lunatic.

For the first time, Led Zeppelin is now available for download on iTunes! The complete Led Zeppelin remastered set is available to download for $99.99! 165-track digital box set of the group’s 13 legendary albums – awesome!

Lindsay In Jail (84 Minutes of Hard Time)


c>log
Lindsay Lohan has spent just 84 minutes in jail for a drunken driving and cocaine possession conviction.

The 21-year-old actor was sentenced in August to one day in jail after pleading guilty to drink and drug charges and told by the court to serve her time before January. The LA County Sheriff’s Department website showed Lohan checked into jail at 10:30am on Thursday and was released at 11:54am for a grand total of 84 minutes served. Hard time for an out-of-touch pampered celeb!

The charges stemmed from a July car chase and an arrest in May after she wrecked her car in Beverly Hills. She has since spent two months in rehabilitation.
