The Pop Culture Playlist focuses on the life of a hero or villain and puts their journey into music. Daenerys Targaryen can be considered one of the heroes in the A Song of Ice And Fire series, while to others she may appear to be the villain. Whatever your opinion of Dany is, she’s a strong, determined woman who’s hell-bent on claiming the Iron Throne. Here are ten tracks that describe how Dany transformed from a meek girl into the fiery Mother of Dragons.
For anyone who lives in Manchester, or plans to visit, there is a great pop culture scene to be involved with. You have the Forbidden Planet and Travelling Man stores within walking distance of each other. Further up the road in the Northern Quarter, there’s Fanboy 3, which caters to fans of board games and RPGs. But if you’re looking for a place to geek out and have a drink, the best place to go is the Fab Café.
The blogging community is massive, and it’s a great way to network with people who’re writing in different areas. I’ve decided to introduce an interview section to The Comic Vault that features other bloggers who have an interest in popular culture. Whether you’re interested in comics or gaming, we’re all united by a love of stories and creative avenues.
Kicking off the interviews is the talented Annick over at Only4feet9. Annick has an interest in gaming and I enjoyed chatting to her about her thoughts on the gaming industry.
The amazing thing about popular culture is that it never stays the same. It’s always changing, with new ideas catching on every day. Something that’s been part of pop culture for as long as I can remember is wrestling. Over the years, there have been many famous names to come out of the business: Stone Cold Steve Austin, The Rock, Chris Jericho, The Undertaker, Triple H, Edge, CM Punk. But what makes them memorable? Why do people who’ve never watched a match know who they are?
Summer is here and that means it’s time to go out and enjoy the comic cons that are happening around the world. From San Diego Comic Con, to a smaller venue with a few stalls, there’s plenty to check out. As someone who attended his first comic con in Manchester last year, I thought it would be a good idea to come up with a few tips for people who’re attending a convention for the first time. I’ve yet to go to any of the large American venues, so this will be a guide on how to enjoy a smaller comic con in your local area.
Over the weekend, I appeared on Hannah’s Bookshelf, which plays on North Manchester FM every Saturday. Hosted by Hannah Kate, the show is about the world of writing and publishing. Hannah runs an independent press called Hic Dragones, and it was a pleasure to go on live radio for the first time.
It’s only been a month and I’ve been nominated for my third award with the Blogger Recognition Award! I’d like to thank GamersUnitedGG for the nomination.
