You could watch the American Music Awards tonight, or you could celebrate the 84th birthday of Mickey Mouse, the animated rodent who, for better or worse, spawned the eventual Disneyfication of American pop culture. So, raise your glasses for Mickey, and contemplate, perhaps, how truly, deeply fucked up it is that Goofy and Pluto are both dogs, but one of them talks and wears clothes while the other is naked and inarticulate. Enjoy the last morsels of weekend!
