Pop Culture

Well, that was a big gap. I thought for sure that I was going to take a two week break from the column while I was away on my trip to Ireland and Scotland, and then come back and get back into the writing habit. But somehow that extended into eight weeks. Eight weeks! Summer vacation brain, what can I say? There's a lot of stuff to catch up on, and there's really no way to effectively catch up on literally everything that I want to tell people about for the column. So instead of using this space to talk about two or...

Hello and good Friday, pop culture fans! This has been one hectic week in the lead-up to the last few days of school, but I have still managed to plough my way through a varied assortment of comics and more. Some of them have been…let’s be kind and say underwhelming, but I’m tossing those ones aside and hunkering down with some of the best things that floated through my consciousness. Submitted for your approval, here they are in no particular order.

Greetings, pop culture lovers! In case anyone is wondering who I am or what I am doing here, I’ll start with a bit of an introduction. My name is Devin R. Bruce, and I’m a speech pathologist, a cappella singer, podcaster, writer, and pop culture fan. Since March of 2014 I have been writing This Column Has Seven Days, a pop culture roundup where I talk about the best or most interesting of my pop culture samplings of the week. When my friends at Variant Edition offered me the opportunity to write for their blog, I jumped at the chance; I packed up my bindle, swallowed my last spoonful of beans, hopped a train to set up shop over here.

In This Column Has Seven Days, I like to share the best of my pop culture week. However, this isn’t just going to be a comics column. In fact, there are probably going to be times where I don’t mention comics at all. I saturate myself in many different pop culture pools: comics, music, movies, books, television, standup comedy, podcasts, and sometimes games and even old time radio programs. If I turn one person on to something they might not have tried, then my efforts have all been worth it. If not…well, then I got to rant and rave about things that I like, so that’s also worth it, really. Now that I have the introductions out of the way: let’s get to the good stuff.
