I Enjoy Pop Culture

I am picking and choosing topics from My Facts post and one of my favourite topics is the media and pop culture. I like everything from lighthearted Buzzfeed quizzes on how well you know Disney lyrics to serious science fiction like Battlestar Galactica. Here are some more things I like in pop culture!

I love anything in the action genre: superheroes, procedural dramas, martial arts, etc. I will watch anything with Jason Statham or Liam Neeson in it; I watched Furious 7 because I heard Jason Statham was the bad guy. My boyfriend makes fun of me all the time for watching cop dramas, but I love anything in the procedural drama genre; it’s all about mystery and guns! This can range from “whodunit” dramas like NCIS and Law and Order, to sci-fi mysteries like Alphas or Eureka. I love to laugh and I’m a girl, so of course I have to like romantic comedies. I’m joking, but I actually do love romantic comedies. The last one I watched was on Netflix and it was called One Small Hitch. I also just love any comedy, as long as it’s not cheesy. I really love Parks and Rec, @midnight, and Psych. I also love anything animated, especially if it’s from Pixar or Studio Ghibli (the studio that Hayao Miyazaki started). My favourite Pixar movie is definitely Big Hero 6 (and I’m super stoked that there’s gonna be a sequel!) and my favourite Studio Ghibli movie is The Cat Returns.

For books, I usually stick to fiction like mysteries, sci-fi, or romance, but I’ve been known to read some autobiographies, memoirs, and self-help books! I follow a lot of blogs, and I use Feedly as my RSS reader; I read everything from beauty blogs like Girl with Curves and Profresh Style, to design blogs like Design Milk, and The Dieline. I also follow animal blogs like Cute Overload, crochet blogs like Twinkie Chan, and food blogs like Brown Eyed Baker. My favourite website, though is a tie between Nerdist and Brit + Co because they’re both equally awesome!

I am also a comic book fan! I’m not a hardcore reader, and I don’t have a lot of facts crammed in my head because frankly there are other things I should be remembering besides what a character has or has not done. That being said, I am 100% more of a Marvel person than a DC person. I am a huge Deadpool fan, and I enjoyed the Marvel Civil War series when it first came out way back in 2006. My brother actually tuned me into it, so it’s another reason I hold it very close to my heart.

Now onto celebrities. In the first episode of my podcast with Sowmya, we talked about each of our Top 5s, which is basically a list of your top five celebrities. Here are my two, for both women and men.

Women Men
  1. Jennifer Lawrence
  2. Mila Kunis
    Olivia Wilde
    Kristen Bell
    Emma Stone
  1. Robert Downey Jr.
  2. Chris Hardwick
  3. Grant Imahara
  4. Tom Hiddleston
  5. Jason Momoa

In my original post, I said these will be the celebrities I will be fangirling about most often. I also included Chris Pratt in my facts post because frankly I’m thinking of dropping Tom Hiddleston and putting Chris Pratt up there (but don’t tell Sowmya!). Plus my boyfriend has a total Chris Pratt vibe going on right now so that doesn’t hurt :)

You can read a detailed version of my list here, including reasons for why and how I began to like them!

I don’t like gossip but if I heard David Boreanaz cheated on his wife a couple of years ago (which is totally what I heard), I will totally talk about that.

That’s all I can think of right now! I hope this provided a little insight into who I am and what I like to talk about!
