Our eyes beheld an eerie sight

We live in a world that is rich with possibilities. Change and development occurs all around us at a dizzying rate – indeed, your very own LOWCULTURE has changed today, and doesn't it look lovely?

It sometimes seems that the only certainty in life is uncertainty – we are continually expected to widen our comfort zone and embrace change, no matter how uncomfortable this might make us feel at the time.

This is all very well, but there are some changes that are just beyond comprehension. We are thinking here of the time that they changed Coco Pops to Choco Krispies, or the crazy year when Loose Women was inexplicably renamed Live Talk.

Our personal fear of change has never been more pronounced than during a recent trip to the Co-op on the corner. A hangover required the purchase of some salt and vinegar Square Crisps, but what we saw there was much more troubling than a thumping head and insatiable thirst.

Be warned, readers – Picked Onion Monster Munch now TURN YOUR TONGUE BLUE!

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaargh! This is just a change too far. Did they learn nothing from the "beefburger-flavour-replacing-roast-beef" debacle of 1995? Apparently not.

About Us

According to Marxist theory, cultural forms such as opera, classical music and the literary works of Shakespeare all fall under the heading of high culture. Low culture refers to a wide variety of cultural themes that are characterised by their consumption by the masses. We might not be Marxists, but we do know we loved Footballers Wives. If you do too, you'll know what this is all about.
