My Pal Sammy Episode 1: Popular or Relevant

Every Christmas break I pantlessly sit and watch and absorb a lot of pop culture (books, comic books, tv shows and movies) and then I have tea and I think a lot and I write a lot so this time I’m recording a handful of My Pal Sammy episodes; this is my Captain’s Log...a record of some of the pop culture I've been consuming and some of the stuff I've been thinking about over my 2018 Christmas Break.

Tonight...Christmas Eve shortly after midnight my tea-fuelled-thinking is focused on how you can be popular or you can be relevant. This topic was prompted by watching:

Adam Sandler's 100% Fresh (Netflix)

Ellen DeGeneres: Relatable (Netflix)

Coldplay: A Head full of Dreams (Amazon Prime)

Oasis: Supersonic (Amazon Prime)

Springsteen on Broadway (Netflix)

Bendis’ Man of Steel (DC Comics)

Thanks for listening.
