In the beginning…

Well, the initial title is a little self indulgent to be certain. That said, this blog’s purpose is to investigate the crispy creme crevices of pop culture’s sweet and savory innards. I aim to explore interwoven avenues of artistic expression, exploitation, and ultimately academia’s intervention through my lens of creative critical consumption. I offer no “satisfaction guarantee” (it’s only appropriate to add a disclaimer, no?), only the guarantee that I will scratch each itch with an entirely subjective yet informed pragmatism. In short, I cannot claim to know all, but I can agree with Socrates when he proclaims in the Apology, The only true wisdom consists in knowing that you know nothing. Thus, perhaps I might conclude this welcome with an appropriate response from Bill and Ted to Socrates on the nature of humankind [and their toys], “All we are is dust in the wind, dude….Dust, Wind, Dude.” Let’s get “real”.
