Ah, Playgirl, an idea that despite being a perfect artifact of the 1970s was nevertheless before its time. (Its time being the point at which technology had advanced sufficiently to allow slow-motion pornographic GIFs on Tumblr.) How did such a thing come to be, how did it work, and where did it go?
If one theme has arisen out of 20 episodes of DirtCast, it’s that—with the advent of social media—the glory days of tabloid culture was over by 2010. So who does one turn to when you want to revisit the thrill that comes only from Lindsay Lohan calling Paris Hilton a “cunt” on camera? Pop Culture Died in 2009, of…
