The Exceptionalism of Nothing

In 1988, some guy from the Midwest dressed up in a tux, brought along a mic and a camera, and conned his way into the Oscars. It appears that this blog has done something similar. Remember that weird Zizek post I wrote? Who cares. Either way, we’ve managed to hoodwink PBS, and I guess they featured it in one of their YouTube videos (around the 10:30 mark).

Before anyone gets too excited, remember that President Trump will soon be defunding the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, so ultimately this is a meaningless accolade. It’s like someone saying that they used to play quarterback in the XFL.

Jokes aside, many thanks to the PBS Idea Channel and Shane Tilton for the praise. It is not unappreciated.
