Hey kiddos. The name’s V, and I live in Los Angeles by way of NJ. I want to utilise this space to write what I’d like to read about television, movies, and pop culture in general. I find that a lot of TV and movie reviews/analysis hit the nail on the head about 70% of the time, but it’s all missing that certain je ne sais quoi.
I write with no agenda, and I have no personal faux-message to push. I’m not attempting to craft An Image(TM) by writing a certain way or liking certain things; it’s all me. I write to share my thoughts and insights with this here internet, hoping to encourage readers to think a little deeper. Approaching media like I’ve approached books has changed the way I see things in the pop culture sphere — the critical angle really makes me think about the media I spend my time watching. I know a lot of things about a lot of things, and see connections and references everywhere in the unlikeliest places. Stringing those bits and pieces together and cracking some esoteric meaning is what I like to do.
I try to watch TV shows that aren’t completely repellant, and I see a hell of a lot of movies over the course of a year. I’ll use this space to write about the movies I see which impact me in any way shape or form, positive or negative. When it comes to television, it needs to be compelling. My list of TV shows is admittedly short, but I’m always open to trying something new. I like to dig into a show and really strip down the characters and learn about what makes the plot move forward. I find myself coming back to shows that have ended and rewatching, still finding meaning and perhaps even something new, years later.
So, that’s that. I probably swear too much, but I’ll try to tone it down so no pearls will be clutched. And, it goes without saying that all thoughts and opinions are my own. Thanks for visiting, and enjoy!
