A short head’s up this morning about something new that’s a revision of something worth watching. Advertising critic Jean Kilbourne continues her four-decade look at the role advertising plays in shaping us, particularly our concept of women. The fourth edition of Kilbourne’s DVD, “Killing Us Softly” is out and worth a look. You can watch the trailer below. You can view a full low-res version of the entire presentation at the Killing Us Softly 4 website.
And while we’re at it, you might want to set the DVR for the premiere episode of TBS’s highly publicized new series about college life, “Glory Daze.” The comedy about campus life in the mid-80s looks to offer kids a peek into what so many kids – sadly – think that college life should be like. The show just might offer some good talking points for those of us who want to prepare our kids to experience college to the glory of God.
