I’d like to invite the followers of this blog to check out my new project – a new podcast entitled The Perfect Podcast. The Perfect Podcast celebrates the highest achievements in music, film, literature, food, visual arts and more! In each episode I talk to a different person about the creations they believe achieve perfection. From the perfect short story to the perfect music video to the perfect cocktail to the perfect skyscraper – the show explores and celebrates the artists who have achieved the elusive, intimidating, confounding and 100% subjective state of . . . Perfection!
I plan to tackle some of the subjects I’ve covered in this blog. I definitely think Prince has created a couple of perfect albums, Michael Jackson has created some perfect songs, Madonna and Janet Jackson have starred in a few perfect music videos and Annie Lennox has turned in some perfect vocal performances. I’d love to hear from you about what you think is perfect or ideal in pop culture. Please visit my website and leave a comment and let me know. Thank for checking this out. Enjoy!
Michael Jackson released Off the Wall in August 1979. The album’s influence would stretch across the 80’s, 90’s and beyond and become a pop/R&B classic. Last month filmmaker Spike Lee released the documentary Michael Jackson’s Journey from Motown to Off the Wall. On this episode of Inside Pop we review the movie and test our knowledge of Jackson trivia. It’s a fun episode in which my co-host, our special guest and I let our Jackson fan flag wave!
To the visitors of this blog I want to share an exciting new venture of mine. My love of Pop Culture extends beyond the year of 1984 – all the way into the present. Please take a listen to my new podcast – Inside Pop – a weekly podcast that reviews and celebrates the week’s biggest pop culture (movies, music, film) stories.
Below is a link to the latest couple of episodes – our review of The Revenant and our celebration of the best movie moments of 2015.
