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.
