    Yes, this. People who do amazing things deserve recognition.

    Also, I really love that I can actually talk with people about my interest now. As an example, I've been reading A Song of Ice and Fire since 2000, and every time I used to bring it up the conversation died quickly. With HBO making Game of Thrones now, I finally get to talk about this fantasy book series with people in my life. I never dreamed that I would be able to make George R.R. Martin jokes with my co-workers.

    (PS: The joke in question - Why does George R.R. Martin not use Twitter? Because he killed all 140 characters.)

    I have recently started going to the movies. And now I see all the movies, good and bad.

    Movies are of course popular culture and I now find I share this culture with just about anyone.

    Who would have guessed? I am Mole on a site devoted to pop psychology and I follow pop culture in the movies and I talk about pop culture with almost everyone I meet.

    I have moved from being a literate elitist to an electric popularist. And it's all your fault.

    You truly are an INFP. Hopping from one thing to the next. You sure you aren't Toad instead of Mole?

    This is annoying, though I admit I probably do it at least a little. It's not really so much because something's popular though as because of why it's popular. If others like it because it is popular, I'm more likely to not want to have anything to do with it. If there are other reasons though, then I don't really care.

    It's human.

    It's apart of the creative process.

    It only encourages us to build other things. Getting stuck on something would cease innovation.

    I only like things others like.

    All those esoteric weird 'artistic' or 'meaningful' movies are for loner chucklehead losers. Seriously, if my friends don't like it, it has to be bad, right?

    After all, popularity is the arbiter of everything. I tend to go by the rule that if it isn't popular, it isn't worth noting.
    'One of (Lucas) Cranach's masterpieces, discussed by (Joseph) Koerner, is in it's self-referentiality the perfect expression of left-hemisphere emptiness and a precursor of post-modernism. There is no longer anything to point to beyond, nothing Other, so it points pointlessly to itself.' - Iain McGilChrist

    Today's counterculture is... the mainstream?
