About Mark

Hi, I’m Mark Lieberman. I like movies, TV shows, music, theatre, and pop culture of all kinds. In fact, I can’t stop thinking about pop culture. Rather than consult a psychiatrist, I use this blog as a forum to collect some of my thoughts about these topics. But don’t assume that my opinion is the last word. In fact, it’s the first. For the most part, it’s no fun talking to yourself. I’d rather start a conversation than finish one, so feel free to disagree with me. Otherwise, I’ve got my psychiatrist on speed-dial just in case. Thanks for reading.

You can find my weekly local news reporting in The Current Newspapers and my pop culture writing in The Week, IndiewireSlant Magazine, Paste Magazine and DCist.
