The 5 stages of grief you’ll go through while watching ‘Girl Meets World’
After a seemingly endless year-and-a-half-long wait, Girl Meets World finally premieres Friday night (and you can watch it online now) — but let’s get this out of the way early: It is not the show you remember and it is likely not the show you’ve been waiting for. That show, our beloved Boy Meets World, is gone and has been for 14 years. In its place is a winking, fun house mirror version of a sequel, which may leave many longtime fans heartbroken. But don’t be afraid: We children of the ’90s will band together in our grief and mourning. And if we work through these five steps of grief together, we may just come to appreciate Girl Meets World for what it is and love Boy Meets World even more.

I wrote this! It pretty much sums up how I feel about ‘Girl Meets World.’ Fear not, despite the doom and gloom format of the article, the show isn’t a total failure. The article even has a bit of an uplifting twist at the end. I’d love to hear what people think.
Pop Culture Brain turned 6 today!
I’m pretty sure this is the first time I’ve received one of these. I thought I had been on Tumblr for too long before they started doing this. Anyway, from one Tumblr vet to everyone out there, thank you so much for supporting me and making this thing that I do matter. I love entertainment and all that comes with it, so it’s been an incredible privilege to share my tastes and silly thoughts with such a passionate audience. Thank you also to everyone I’ve met and gotten to work with as a result of this thing, for shaping me as a professional social media, writer person. Now back to the regularly scheduled nonsense.
Great news everyone! I’m writing pop culture opinion pieces for PolicyMic now. Naturally, my first one is about a cappella — which is a lot bigger than you think.
There is something inherently lame about a cappella singing. This may be because of its roots in barbershop or the high technical barrier required for entry. Or maybe it’s the fact that a group of people standing around mimicking instruments is kind of ridiculous. How could voices ever stand up to actual instruments, especially in the face of an era benchmarked by electronic sound? That said, what a cappella groups can do is undeniably distinct. When done well, a cappella definitely does stand up. As we move through the 2010s a cappella is seeing its moment in the sun. Popular culture is finally catching up to what so many fans already knew: a cappella is worthy of our iPods, our downloads, our views. If it weren’t for the internet and viral videos, the genre would not be nearly as successful.
There are some great clips within, so please check it out.
