I’m starting this blog to share my thoughts on the intricacies and idiosyncrasies of modern media. I’m currently studying global media & communications for my masters’ degree in the UK (I’m from the US) and enjoying learning more about media theory and seeing it in practice whenever I turn on the TV or walk down the street in London. As opposed to my previous blogs, I want to expand more on a wide range of topics in the media (I’m an avid pop culture, film, and TV buff), whether it’s commenting on the next Ryan Gosling meme, why I’m not a fan of 3D films, or interesting theoretical findings that come up in my courses. Whatever your interest, I just hope that I can bring something new to your media palette and share some insight from a different perspective. That said, let’s all go to the lobby to get ourselves a treat before we kick this off!
