Whose Blog Is This Anyway?

 

Hiya! Alyssa, here.  Welcome to my little nook of the internet here. On Pop Cultured, you’ll find posts varying from my personal opinions and observations on popular culture – ranging from film to TV to music to literature. Some people have talents, like they can sing, they can paint, or they can persuade. My talent? I am the human IMDB app.

Ever since I was a kid, I had my favorite and least favorite shows and movies. I was forming opinions as a cute (probably annoying) little girl. I’d crash at my grandma’s house every weekend just because she had cable and access to the Disney Channel. My first job was at FYE. I realize you might not even know what FYE is reading this today, but it stands for For Your Entertainment. We sold albums, movies, memorabilia, and electronics – for your entertainment!! It was the day of 17th birthday when I walked in and said I want to work here. They said why? To me, it was obvious. All I wanted to do was talk about music and movies.

I’d like to say that my taste isn’t always changing, but it is always evolving. Here are a few of my favorites:

Favorite Movie: Donnie Darko
Favorite TV Show: LOST
Favorite Musical Artist: Frank Sinatra
Favorite Book: The Outsiders

Now that we’re used to streaming our entertainment right online with platforms like Netflix and Spotify, I created this blog to write down all my thoughts on all of the content I’m consuming on a regular basis. There’s so much good stuff out there & if you don’t have a source for reccomendation, you could be missing out! That’s where I come in.

I do have a personality outside of pop culture – who knew! I’m from the city of brotherly love (Go Eagles!), a Scorpio, a marketing professional, and what I like to call a modern-day hippie.

I’d love to know what you want to read about! Shoot me a note at alyssajguckin@gmail.com with suggestions or comments.
