  35. “I like cinematic art that doesn’t have to include violence as the main meat of emotion. Now, excellence in cinema is based on murder, guns. Tarantino bores me.

For me, it was like two different universes existed at the same time, and we got used to being in these parallel universes.” ~ Jaak Kilmi

  52. “Pop culture is like our subconscious.” ~ Hanna Rosin

It’s about spreading ideas and making people think differently, essentially.” ~ Katie Stelmanis
  58. “I hate recording all the shows for the week in one day, because I want to be able to mention current events and pop culture.

  64. “That’s the problem with you nearly immortal types,” I said. “You couldn’t spot a pop culture reference if it skittered up and implanted an embryo down your esophagus.” ~ Jim Butcher
  65. “It is possible to be a fan of reality TV, talent shows and bubblegum pop and still have a brain. You will also see that a great many people know perfectly well how silly and camp and trivial their fandom is. They do not check in their minds when they enter a fan site. Judgement is not necessarily fled to brutish beasts, and men have not quite lost their reason. Which is all a way of questioning whether pop-culture hero worship is really so psychically damaging, so erosive of cognitive faculties, so corrupting of the soul of mankind as we are so often told.” ~ Stephen Fry
