As a young fan, I remember harboring dreams of reading all the comic books there ever were in the world to be read.  It was a noble quest (and one I think I put an honest effort into) but as an adult I realize that, not only is that a storage nightmare, there are a great many books that I just don’t want to read.  F’rinstance, s beautiful as the early 2000s ‘Aria’ title from Image Comics is/was, I found nothing in the story to hold my interest.  Likewise, even though I’m a fan of ‘The Flash,’ I have no desire to see any of ‘Arrow,’ the show from which it was spun-off.  Some have said that I’m missing out on a cool show, but I’ve come to a point in my life where there’s only so much time to devote to my hobbies (and Major Spoilers generally dominates that) which means that even though I’ve never seen all of Gosei Sentai Dairanger, I won’t be rectifying that any time soon.  Still, after not seeing ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’ in theatres, I leapt to catch it on cable this summer, leading us to today’s late-to-the-party query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced “die-ran-jur”) still hasn’t seen all of ‘Avengers: Age Of Ultron’, though I’ll probably get around to that one eventually, asking: What pop-culture experiences on which you missed out do you MOST want to experience?


About Author

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.


  1. Lemmy Caution (@_Lemmy_Caution) on

    The Algonquin Round Table. I would risk it all for a chance to have lunch with Dorothy Parker.

  2. I’ve never seen a full episode of Kamen Rider. I like Ultraman, Godzilla and to some extent, other tokusatsu things too, so I feel like missing out.
