You're famous (in other words, you're in the Seattle Weekly)!

'In fact, the fifth annual conference may be the most accessible yet, with guilty pleasures on display from "Truly Outrageous: Toward a Defense of Jem & the Holograms," by Lizzie Ehrenhalt'

I very much prefer accessibility to the alternative, e.g. 'I'm going to make people think I'm smart by writing entirely in incomprehensible jargon that only stuck-up academics can feign to understand, and which is composed mostly of words I made up that don't actually mean anything.' especially when it means that the word 'humping' is included in the text.
