When I was a younger man, I really enjoyed Rick Veitch’s horrifying satirical (?) comic, ‘Bratpack.’ It was dark and brutal and hit all the right notes for me, ending with the perfectly nihilistic ending that so many grimdark 90s joints wish that they could pull off. I loved it, but I never want to see it again. It’s just TOO much, featuring takedowns not only of the Batman and Superman archetypes, but comic book creators, eras and even W*lt D*sney himself. I would recommend it to anyone who shares my predelictions, but like ‘Schindler’s List’, I don’t think I’m ever gonna want to experience it again, leading to today’s semi-traumatic query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) is almost certainly never going to watch ‘The Day After’ again, though I am glad that I saw it the first time, asking: What pop culture that you absolutely loved do you NEVER want to see again?

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.

    Torchwood: Children of Earth was incredible, but it will be a long time into dementia before I forget how devastating it is and watch it again.
