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 firstname.lastname@example.org with suggestions or comments.
