Time To Say Goodbye
Since we started frying up pop culture in butter over a year ago, we’ve written over 800 posts, had over 10,000 comments, and nearly 250,000 page views – not too shabby for a bunch of misfits. It’s been a fantastic ride, but our cholesterol count needs a rest. No, none of us has gotten a book deal, it’s just time for the band to move on to solo projects and close the doors on Fry Butter. Feel free to enjoy our archives and catch up on posts you’ve missed.
Thank you so much, steady readers and faithful commenters (special shout-out to our hardcore fans!), for keeping us honest and pushing us forward to watch more TV and movies, listen to more music, and keep scouring the internet for long lost video clips from bygone eras. (I’m still hunting for a clip of that Mervyn’s lady chanting “open open open open”!)
Please keep in touch with us writers, there are exciting new projects coming down the pipe this summer!
snarkysmachine: Snarky’s Machine occasionally haunts her flagship blog, but the best place to catch her is on Twitter or blogging about office supplies. She’ll spend the summer being paid to sit through summer blockbusters, but not enough to end her long standing ritual of bringing her own snacks to the theater.
raymondj: If you are in Chicago in June, Raymond will be on stage at Poonie’s Cabaret at Links Hall and also appearing in the play Fa$hion, as part of the Alcyon Festival. Otherwise, come hang out with him at www.araymondjohnson.com or follow @raymondj.
p0plife: Poplife will continue to listen to music while yelling at kids to stay off her lawn. She will be releasing the second printing of her zine, “Don’t Tell Me What To Do” this summer while working on the newest issue, a Crispin Glover fanzine, new music-writing, and half-assed training for a 5k. You can see updates/drawings at noisyspoon.tumblr.com
evmaroon: Everett Maroon will be guest blogging for Bitch Magazine this summer and for Gay YA.org, while he gets started on a new book about mummies and spies. He’s also excited to be part of the team putting together the upcoming book, Trans Bodies, Trans Selves, and in his free time, he’ll continue to blog at Transplantportation.com.
s.e. smith:s.e. smith can always be found at this ain’t livin’, ou personal website, as well as on Twitter and Tumblr. smith also has a regular television criticism column at Global Comment, appears frequently at Tiger Beatdown and The Guardian, and will be returning to Bitch Magazine this summer in a series on mental health in pop culture. As always, dial meloukhia at gmail dot com for interview requests, commissions, and related matters.
redlami: Redlami says funny things on Twitter And no, he probably won’t answer any computer related questions.
