I was going to suggest it could be worse. But I think the only way would be if it was CSI:Miami

Nah, CSI Miami has the virtue of being so awful it's (almost) good. CSI:NY is just mediocre.

Speaking of furries: have people seen PG Porn? It is still NSFW, but because of some language, not naughty bits.

As a journalist I read this and thought, Fuck, I can't keep up. Because I've never heard of vidding. And if NPR is reporting on vidding, this practice is probably as old as Youtube. Fuck.

So, reading the article, this strikes me as merely the whole Airwolf vs. Blue Thunder thing under a new, NPR-baitingly-stupid name, and with a couple of people willing to give pretentious quotes. I would say "meh", but apparently that's deprecated.

From the link in 8:

I hate to say this, but there's no group of thirty people on the internet where nobody gets defensive.

I'm stumped. If it weren't late, I'd say: discuss.

I have developed one of yesterday's comments into a brief post revolutionizing the trolley-car problem and introducing the reader to the fundamentals of problematology.

Seriously. Problematology is an actual philosophical tendency. And if philosophers had been talking about impaled bankers all along, instead of fat men on the railroad tracks, you wouldn't have heard a peep out of me. Philosophy needs to renounce idle speculation and return to a humane, contexted realism.

Also, I'm not that surprised by the existence of this phenomenon, given that (a) the internet is full of everything and (b) I already knew there were people who obsessively remixed anime to rock ballads and people will never be able to surprise me with their obsessing over anime, but wow; a scene devoted to CSI:NY is a really, really specific flavor of that.

To you. We disagree about most things of this kind.

Are you familiar with Meyer, Perelman, and Toulmin?

Probably most analytic philosophers dislike Meyer for exactly the reasons I like him. He and Toulmin are both able to talk analytic language, though (Toulmin actually studied under Wittgenstein), so in their case at leats it's possible for analytics to know what they're disliking.
