By Pop Modern Staff

pop-modern (adj.) A vacuous bastardization of two equally vacuous words. The kind of word that demands a definition, but has none. Some bullshit we cooked up to come across as witty or potentially thought-provoking. Think of it not as the word that encompasses what this blog is all about, but the word that a crowd shouts out at the beginning of an improv show. From here on out, we’re just going to riff, and we’d like you to join us.

We here at “Pop Modern” don’t really have a formal schedule, but we’re going to try to post a healthy amount of articles every week. We’re going to give our unique perspective on all things pop-culture, be that films, video games, music, or whatever else catches our fancy.

This isn’t a review site, or a news aggregator; this is our perspective, plain and simple. We’re going to tackle the zeitgeist with a thoughtful, but often tongue-in-cheek tone. As this blog progresses, we’d like to build a community of people who are just as interested as we are in talking about pop-culture from diverse points of view. If you have an idea, an opinion, a suggestion, or anything else you’d like to share with us, we’re open to it.

This is an experiment, and we’re hoping it blows up like some weird-ass, neon chemicals. Now, whether that explosion is disastrous or groundbreaking, though, remains to be seen.
