A collaborative project, nearly a year and a half in the making, has finally appeared online courtesy of my inability to finish what I start, but also of the fact that I impulsively bought a Red Bull at Rite Aid last night at like 8 PM. An explanation, courtesy of my Red Bull haze:For those of us who prefer to spend our days enjoying things, it is a fact of life: Lots of disagreeable people like things that might otherwise be pretty cool. In early 2012, Tag, David, and I, using nothing but a Google doc and our combined grade-school knowledge of mathematics, attempted to quantify the ways in which these madding crowds might be messing up our lives.
It’s strange that we let others drag down our appreciation for something as great as Chappelle’s Show, but also funny how Sublime’s fans manage to make Sublime even worse. We live in a complicated world.
Feel free to disagree with any of our conclusions. Recommended: sort by Level of Tragedy in order to get the clearest picture of what greatnesses have been sunk by their accompanying fandoms.
This is so amazing.
