I figured it was only appropriate to begin my blog with a post explaining why I’m blogging in the first place. Whether you personally know me or not, I hope this will give you a bit more insight into my intentions.
I’ve always been fascinated by pop culture. As a child, I often rejected it in some regards, but as I went through High School, I began to become enamored with it – the top 40 music, network television, blockbuster movies, New York Times bestsellers.
When I was in college, I began to notice themes within all of these. Any half thought-out story had a bigger message lying beneath it. Sometimes those messages are made plain as day but other times they are a bit more subtle, lying just below the surface, hoping to be spotted.
That’s what is fascinating about the arts: their ability to say so much without ever actually needing to articulate it.
These things are what I want to look at on this blog. So whenever I go see a new movie, catch a line of dialog on TV or see a message in a novel, I hope to discuss those on here.
That’s not to say I won’t have random things to say from time to time, but we’ll discover those as we go.
Thanks for stopping by.
