Ahh, the second sign of the Apocalypse! Wonderful...

The first sign of the apocolypse, of course, involves the now accepted use of terms like "Britneybilia".

More efficient than that would be to bury her in a time capsule that won't be opened until some time after my death. ...okay so maybe not more efficient, but more preferable.. Here's some virtual representations of museums which you (whoever you are) may or may not consider worthy of your time:

Louisiana State
Barker Character, Comic and Cartoon
Unnatural Mystery
Science: Boston
The Kimbell

Does anyone else have some favorite nonBritney museums they'd like to share?

I always thought the term was "Britniana," but whatever.

The Britney Eighteenial is an idea whose time has clearly come. (Actually, I'm thinking this should have happened at least a month ago.)

Regardless. I shall now wander, glassy-eyed, unto the shrine of cradle the Princess of Pop.

Somehow, this just strikes me as sad - the Cult of Celebrity at its nadir... How hideous is she going to be when she's forty?!

(Oh, and Zach, don't forget Chicago's Art Institute.)

ROFL! OH MY GOD! That is so sick! I know what place I'm staying away from!

Yeesh. So much venom. Of course, I remember spewing just as much vitriol about Barney. Somehow, Western Civilization survived the Coming of the Purple Dinosaur; I suspect it'll survive Britney.

actually, i thought it was keen, in kind of a sicko way. now i have somewhere to uniroinically wear my britney glitter-tee. :)

oh, and i forgot to add: chicago's museum of contemporary art has consistently intelligent shows and programs. the last thing i saw there was a kickin' performance of contemporary japanese puppetry, alongside huge moriko mori prints. yummy.

Sometimes something comes along which lets me know just how far out of it I am.

What's a "Britney"?
posted by Steven Den Beste at 2:12 PM on June 28, 2000

not "a" britney, "the" britney. see also: backstreet boys, new kids on the block, menudo, the monkees, the archies, ad nauseum.

long live the pop machine.

there's something really poignant about a performer who can fit herself into such a strict formula, yet change the paradigm enough to retain a distinct identity. cross-demographic, no less.

i took my roommate's niece (cheap excuse) to see the britney not long ago. she may be a pop smear, but she works her ass off onstage with a professionality far beyond her years.

I like the National Gallery, myself.

As I think about it, I particularly like Marchesa Brigida Spinola Doria, and have ever since I saw her on tour at the Seattle Art Museum... But hey, what I can I say, I'm just a sucker for intelligent-looking flirty brunettes... :)

i got your flirt right here...

Um, if we're dipping her in wax, can I have the boobs? :-)

I would love to cover Britney in wax... *reow*...
posted by fusinski at 7:57 AM on June 29, 2000

What, like 2 tons of the stuff? ;-)
