About

Hi fellow spideys and spidettes!

For as long as I can remember, my spidey sense has been working overtime – only what gets it tingling is not incoming danger but pop culture tidbits.

The best way to describe me is as a pop culture junkie, rabid fangirl, and obsessive theatre and arts lover who likes insanely pretty things – beauty with a hint of darkness. This is why my favourite books, movies, artworks, and theatre and TV shows tend to fall into the science fiction/fantasy/urban myth/supernatural genres and the complex characters and mythologies of these worlds across various platforms and artforms will dominate this blog. Yet I also love purely shiny, happy things like musicals and 90s pop, so expect the occasional burst of sunshine and rainbows!

Anyone who knows me in real life knows that I take my enthusiasm to extremes, which is why I love the blogosphere. You can find the ten other people in the world who feel as passionately as you do about certain topics! So I can’t wait to explore character nuances, plot threads, themes and debates of various pop culture topics with you all…

Oh, and the queen of insanely pretty things is a lovely artist I know called Joelie Croser. She is the cool chick behind my banner image, which I have put below too, and you’ll see a lot of her images pop up on my blog.

Love,

Spidey Sense (AKA Cherie Barnett)

    Yay! Welcome to the blogosphere, My Fellow Fangirl! I literally squealed with joy, and clapped my hands like a baby seal, when I saw your e-mail about this new blog! I’m so honored to be among the first to have seen it!

    You + The Blog World = A Match Made in Heaven. You’ll see! 😉

    I love the layout you chose, the banner picture, your About Me explanation, and the category ideas you suggested in your e-mail. Everything looks awesome already! Great job! I’ve already added you to my blogroll.

    Of course, I have no doubt that My Spidey Sense will fast become a place where I (and thousands of crazy fangirls, like me) spend A TON of time! Happy Blogging! 🙂

      Awww! I hope you like the very first post I’ve written, which has just gone up. I think I am going to be blog trigger happy over the next few weeks, as I have ideas for posts coming out of my eyeballs! And thank you so much for adding me to your blog roll – of course you’re on mine too!

      You are without doubt the TV recapping queen, but I hope you’ll enjoy The Walking Dead recaps I’ll be doing. I think I’ll do a mini episode sum up of The Vampire Diaries each week because I love it so much, but I’ll leave the in-depth recapping of TVD to you – plus I kind of love doing my in-depth commenting about TVD on your site because it is populated with so many clever and hilarious fangirls :). But I just know doing similarly in-depth recaps for The Walking Dead will be fun. After all, it can be no accident that TVD and TWD are such similar acronyms – they must both point to sheer pop cultural awesomeness.

      I promise you, I’ll get zombies to grow on you :).
