Once in a while, I get a sad reminder that our beloved shared worlds were always designed to be disposable. The latest such revelation came as I tried to figure out what to do with a big batch of X-Files comics and collectibles after a couple of months of trying (and failing) to sell them on the Ebay. Even though Mulder & Scully’s heyday was relatively recent, it seems that they’ve already been forgotten by at least my internet buyers. As a fan and champion of obscurity (ask me about Fruitman sometime) I always find a bit of transitory sadness when this happens, much like seeing an abandoned teddy bear or a lost pet.
The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) is less question and more philosophical musing: What’s your favorite forgotten corner of pop culture?
