Is This Mic On?


If something is popular, I’ve either done it, seen it, or am it. Those are just a couple of the many reasons that I’m so excited to bring you this blog. What is The Perfect Read? No, it isn’t going to be advice on putting (you don’t want that from me). Neither will it be commentary that you’d hear at your mom’s book club. (“it’s Levi-Oh-sa not Levi-o-SA”) This blog is the proverbial fat kid in the T-shirt cannonballing into the deep end of pop culture.

How are we going to do this? Thanks to my two DVRs. Yes, two. And one of them is even high definition. If it is going on, I’m not going to miss it. One of the DVRs (the HD one) is in the main living area of my house and is used for recording sporting events, HBO original programing, Victoria’s Secret Fashion Shows, and other manly things (not UFC). The second DVR (try the veal) is in a secluded location. That is where I record what I like to call estro-dramas; American Idol X Factor, Gossip Girl, 90210, Pretty Little Liars, etc. The reason I have this two DVR setup isn’t because I’m embarrassed to watch these shows. Actually, it’s quite the opposite. I watch these shows for the same reason I created Washington DC’s first and only free dog walking service - the chicks. Girls loving having my opinion on the turbulent love/hate relationship between Blair and Chuck. So I give it to them, along with my number. This second DVR location provides me with the space that I need so I can easily, without distraction, take notes on contestant performances, untangle plot twists, and attempt to set the over-under on the alcohol content of whatever “liquid” is in Paula Abdul’s “Pepsi glass.” (Current line is at 24 ½ %.) I need these separate viewing areas. They help to maintain a separation of business pleasure and guilty pleasure.

I bring all this up not to convince you to tune into the CW (which you probably should start doing), but to assure you that I have everything pop culture covered. I am Ursula from The Little Mermaid. I packed on 100 pounds, outfitted my eight noodly octa-arms with authentic Ostrogothan war shields (tongue twister free of charge), and spent the last two weeks studying game film of Julie “The Cat” Gaffney. The puck is pop culture and it’s never getting past me.

So, have you ever wondered what it would be like to have a grasp on everything? Stay tuned.
