Just a few years ago, I actually had what I liked to refer to as a “secondary weekend” on Tuesday.  It was kind of nice, serving as a day where I could shut down my adult brain and go through a bit of decompression, prepare for the week’s podcasts, kick back and relax.  This week, I had a sick child and was home all day on Tuesday, causing me to look back on those days fondly and wonder how I ever got anything done with a big hole in the middle of the week.  Back then, if I needed to relax, I usually check out of the world entirely with some Stephen King short stories or, in if things got REALLY serious, some classic Tom & Jerry cartoons.  In an absolute worst-case scenario, there was always time for a fifty-third reading of the entire catalogue of ‘Howard The Duck,’ which leads us to today’s calming query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) is always fascinated by people’s emotional reactions to pop culture, especially a friend who shut down his agita by shooting only characters with blonde hair in ‘Grand Theft Auto’, asking: What pop culture is the best at helping you to put your kick back and relax?

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.
