My First Post (and it’s only 4 years late)

This is a blog.  There are many like it but this one is mine.

Seeing as how I’ve had this site for four years now, I figured that I might as well finally do something with it.  I’m old enough that I can still remember when blogging was a big deal.  Today, of course, everyone’s on twitter or Instagram or they’ve got a podcast.  Kids today, man.  They’ve got no idea how excited we all were back in 2003 when we realized that literally anyone could start a site and share their thoughts with strangers.

The blog will deal with whatever I feel like talking about at the time.  There will probably be a lot of thoughts on politics, music, and movies.  I’ll be surprised if anyone other than my family and a few friends ever bothers to read it but that’s okay.  This is mostly just a place for me to vent and express myself.  Plus, my attempts to predict political and cultural trends have been proven to be incorrect 98% of the time.

Yes, Jedadiah Leland is a pen name.  My real name is Jeff.  Citizen Kane has always been my favorite movie and Jedediah Leland (played by Joseph Cotten) is my favorite character.  I also review movies, games, books, and music over at Through the Shattered Lens, where I’m fortunate enough to work with a host of other talented writers.

I’ll try to keep this site interesting and, considering the times in which we’re living, I’ll only have myself to blame if I fail.  I’ll also follow back anyone who chooses to follow this blog.

And now, Pop Politics is live.
