You might have noticed a few changes around here…
You may have noticed that Pop Culture Interruption went a bit dark over the summer. There are several reasons for that. The most obvious being that there’s not a lot of TV to cover over the summer—though I wish I had reviewed “Teen Wolf”; it had a great half season this summer. Maybe I’ll pick it up in January. Because I can’t get enough of those kids.
The second reason is a big one: I decided to make some big changes in my personal life, so I packed up my DVDs and my TV (you know, the necessary things in life) and moved from Columbus, Ohio to Los Angeles, California in July. It was a ridiculous five day journey across a ton of the US that I’d never seen before, but it was worth it. I made a quick stop in Albuquerque and saw the White House, but didn’t have much time to see anything else. I fully plan on returning, though, and doing a full self-guided “Breaking Bad” tour. Because I have priorities in life and seeing Jesse Pinkman’s house is obviously one of them.
The last and most important reason Pop Culture Interruption has been a bit bleak since May, is that this summer I decided to make my hobby my job. I took a job as an associate editor at TV.com around the same time I moved to LA. You can follow everything I’ve written (and everything I will write) here. It’s been a lot of fun over there and I hope you’ll follow me over there.
What this means for Pop Culture Interruption
Not much is going to change around here. While I will be spending a lot of my time writing news stories and covering shows for TV.com, I will still be writing here. I still plan on writing about “The Vampire Diaries” and “Hart of Dixie” every week. Price Peterson already does the greatest reviews/recaps of TVD on the planet, so I will be talking about Jeremy’s biceps and counting down the days until Matt Davis returns for good (IT HAS TO HAPPEN, RIGHT?) right here, just like I always have been. And if you think I won’t be back here discussing Zade as soon as “Hart of Dixie” premieres, well then, you’re… um, mistaken. I won’t be covering either of those shows for TV.com, but if you’re interested, I’ve created a list of shows that I will be covering for them:
- Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
- Sleepy Hollow
- Sons of Anarchy (I might still review it here, too)
- Parks and Recreation
There’s always a possibility I’ll be covering more, too.
Oh, and I fully plan on over-analyzing Daniel Gillies’ hair right here every week on “The Originals.” So if you’re into that sort of thing … Until then, I leave you guys with this:
