Ok, here is my first article (Me selling myself to you the reader). You started reading even though I said you didn’t have to. Thanks! Now for starters I am Chris because my mom told me I was. I am 33 yrs young and am glad being a geek is cool. I am a comic book reader and collector. I’ve owned a comic Book store in the Tupelo area for 4 years. I love music, not just one genre and all sorts of movies. That does include some B horror films nobody has heard of. I will make a list of some good ones.
If you are reading this then you are like me and enjoy learning new things. Through this article I will reveal secrets of pop culture in movies, books, music and yes even the Tupelo area as it appears. Not only this but I will also point out how these can influence people psychologically. I know you are wondering what right I would have to give any insight on this. Truth is I don’t. That is for you to decide. However unlike the average consumer of pop culture that goes about their day and never considers the things they consume. I do in depth research, and often uncover the minute details they themselves have overlooked. I have kept this knowledge to myself for many years. I am not offering to give you this information and point of view.
Just to make sure everyone’s on the same page let’s look at Webster’s Definition:
“Popular culture or pop culture is the entirety of attitudes, ideas, images, perspectives, and other phenomena within the mainstream of a given culture, especially Western culture of the early to mid-20th century and the emerging global mainstream of the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Heavily influenced by mass media, this collection of ideas permeates the everyday lives of the society. The most common pop culture categories are: entertainment (such as movies, music, television, and video games), sports, news), politics, fashion/clothes, technology, and slang. Popular culture has a way of influencing an individual’s attitudes towards certain topics. Popular culture is sometimes viewed as being trivial and “dumbed-down” in order to find consensual acceptance throughout the mainstream. As a result, it comes under heavy criticism from various non-mainstream sources (most notably religious groups and counter-cultural groups) which deem it superficial, consumerist, sensationalist, or corrupt.”
Popular culture can be a heavy download for most people. Hopefully I can help guide you and others with a different perspective. I am always open to comments and questions.
