Your PopCulteer has been operating at less than 100% for some time now, and there are lots of story ideas, news bits and other items that have been piling up on my desk. This week, we’re going to see about clearing a bunch of those off so we can get a fresh start next week.
What follows are brief bursts of infotainment, slashed in price and marked down to next to nothing. We pass the saving along to you! How do we turn a profit? VOLUME!!!
Saturday is the infamous East End Yard Sale. Get up early and hit up the Historic East End of Charleston hunting for bargains. Some people consider it paradise…others find it to be somewhere between the third and fourth levels of hell.
I’m taking some kind of perverse glee in the way our local traffic reporters handled the rash of accidents that happened recently on the stretch of Interstate 64 between Hurricane and Milton. After blaming distracted drivers for all the problems of people driving into one another, they would then pivot, without a hint of irony, to plugging the “WAZE” app, which lets you learn about and report traffic delays on your phone…while you’re driving.
Speaking of local TV, did Dutch Miller stop advertising on WCHS, or did their ads just get lost in the miasma of all the political advertising? Do you think maybe they saw those Don Blankenship ads and decided they couldn’t compete with the stupidity on display?
And did anybody notice how, the day after the Primary election, all the political ads on WCHS were replaced with ads for catheters? I mean, are catheters really such a big business that they can afford to advertise on TV?
The latest Charlton Neo project is a four volume set of reprints of Billy The Kid stories by legendary artist, John Severin. Sourced from original silverprints, they will be presented in black and white and in new color volumes, with colors by Mort Todd. Learn about how you can advance order them HERE.
We also have wrestling in Madison Saturday…
Sunday, The Living Deads bring their Psychobilly Madness to The Boulevard Tavern at 9:30 PM.
You may remember The Living Deads from this RFC MINI SHOW…
That’s it for this week’s PopCulteer. Check back for our regular stuff, every day.
