500 Posts!

January 28, 2012

If you had told me three years ago that I would have gotten this blog to 500 posts, I don’t think I would have believed you.  But here we are:  five hundred posts of wordy review-y media junkie pop culture goodness, awwww yeah!  As it turns out, not giving a shit about whether people give a shit about what I give a shit about kinda works for me as a blogging strategy.

To commemorate this exhaustive record of my media consumption (and the odd, other thing), I took a quick look through my reviews and listed some highlights from my first 500 entries.  These works jumped out at me as excellent and particularly memorable ones, and for whatever reason just really spoke to me personally.
