Welcome to the Playground

welcome2I didn’t want to write a big long introductory post, but I thought it might not hurt to try to set some expectations for this website right out of the gate.

Most importantly, I call this site a playground in the title because that’s what it is for me. If you’re expecting a carefully organized and curated site with a coherent focus, you’re likely going to be baffled (and probably disappointed). I used to keep multiple blogs/sites for my various interests, but updating all that regularly was a nuisance so I have kitchen-sinked it all here.

I’ll be porting over some content (manually–argh!) from those previous blogs, so if you knew me from somewhere else, you’ll probably see some redundancy out of the gate. I’ll try to keep it to a minimum, though.

This title Pop Culture & Paper Dolls was the best I could come up with for an over-arching theme. I like talking about things in pop culture and I like paper dolls. Occasionally I enjoy marrying the two.

But consider yourself forewarned: my tastes are occasionally on the strange side. What I like in pop culture isn’t always that popular, and some of it may be pretty obscure. Nevertheless, I think I can at least guarantee that what you’ll find here won’t be found anywhere else on the web.welcome1
