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.
