TV/Media Commentary and Societal Insights. With a Beard.
This is the whole first post thing where I explain my intentions with the blog, I guess, right?
Well, this is going to be a bit of an experiment. For now, there will be three types of things published:
1) Media analyses/reviews (mostly TV, as that’s my forte, but occasionally movies and comics) in article form
2) Life and Society articles, using the pop culture-y mindset I’ve gained from my media analyses to make my little insignificant 20somthing insights entertaining and enlightening (and similar to what you’d find on Cracked)
3) The most experimental (for me) part of it–a comical video series of essays/reviews/retrospectives on forms of media (again, mostly TV, and in a form similar to some producers on ThatGuyWiththeGlasses)
In any case, look forward to an ever-evolving style–if something seems to be hitting more of the right notes, the blog might shift focus. We’ll see.
The next few articles will be ones that were posted on my Tumblr before it became more of a “reblogging funny pictures” blog. They fit into the style I want this blog to be (for the most part) and aren’t yet out of date. After this, I’ll start posting some new stuff, and hopefully by mid-January, episodes of the video series will be ready to launch!
My qualifications? I’ve written numerous unpublished and undergraduate research on the likes of Power Rangers, Gargoyles, the Superman franchise, and more. But I imagine “unpublished” is the key word here–so here I am, sort of “self-pubishing” my insights, analyses and sometimes parodies in entertaining and funny ways. Oh, did I mention I won a contest on IGN once and won a TheCW Prizepack because I wrote about how much Smallville meant to me? That was really awesome. Also have something called a “Liberal Arts degree” and it involves this kind of stuff sometimes, but no one really pays much attention to that.
In any case, I hope you enjoy this little ride. I hope you find something entertaining and enlightening, or you learn to look at oftentimes overlooked forms of media a little differently.
Enjoy! And savor the beard!
