Well, this is the first piece of content on this website and yet it is a very hard critique. It was not planned and in a way it is very annoying to slam this book. For different reasons. First, there are so unbelievably few texts dealing with Buffy in german language. Therefore one is tempted to praise any such text. Second, Lenzhofers aim is to help girls/women fighting patriarchic rolemodels, so we are on one side of the barricades at this point. Nevertheless, the critique must be hard. We, the team organizing the Buffy-Conference 2007 were asking ourselves, whether or not it would be good to invite Lenzhofer. Thus I read the book very hopefully. I was disillusioned very quickly, though, and that sucked. Ergo: Slam. Sorry for that.

In this subcategory of category pop-culture everything is about things that happen in TV, for example — who would have thought this — about TV series like Buffy the Vampire Slayer. But it is also about people, who have theories on television, and on their theoretical output.

This category is about music. Who would have thought this. It’s a subcategory of the category pop-culture, because I am totally sure, that I will never write on classical music for I don’t understand much of such stuff. The term pop-music is used in a somewhat extended way. Its used not only for popular pop but also for stuff like Throbbing Gristle and Nurse With Wound
