If you’re not familiar with The A.V. Club‘s “Inventory” feature, it’s time to get acquainted. These esoteric/nostalgic/encyclopedic lists are great reading — pretty much as good as it gets to a pop culture geek, no matter what bug you’ve been bitten by: music, TV, film or literature. The “Inventory” posted today is a fantastic one: “25 Notable Trippy Kids Shows”. I contributed the entries on ’70s shows The Electric Company and Lancelot Link, Secret Chimp.
An “Inventory” close to my heart ran in March, “25 Great Albums Best Listened To Start To Finish.” I covered records by King Crimson, Neutral Milk Hotel, Deltron 3030, Wyclef Jean, The Flaming Lips, and Parenthetical Girls.
