Writing for Pop Culture Beast is going to be an adventure. The pop culture landscape is constantly changing. New movies! Songs! Books! Games! Magazines! Hot people, places, things! People we know well doing dumb things, and people we’ve never heard of til now doing cool things! And then there are all the ideas that emerge from that delightful pop culture mess. What does it all mean? I’m here to review and react to pop culture happenings, current and classic. With so many talented (and ridiculous) people on this planet, I think it’s going to be a good time.

I wanted to relate to people better. That's probably a good goal for someone in psychology. So I started picking up Us and People. I started trawling TMZ, and rolling my eyes at Perez Hilton. And I started having better social discussions, because pop culture helped me relate to almost anyone (except that researcher who said she’d never heard of Friends, but if that’s the case, it’s probably for the better). Everyone knows who Lady Gaga is. Most people know Paula Deen is trying to emerge from a scandal. Many people have read Harry Potter, or saw the latest summer blockbuster. And we all adore Anderson Cooper’s giggle!
Ryan Seacrest’s pixie dust is no longer on my person, but I still have a fresh-faced and giddy view on celebrities. Sometimes I get mad at them. You’ll see!
