Welcome to All the Fanfare
This is All the Fanfare, a newsletter about pop culture (mostly).
The following is from my About page. So if you’ve already read it, there’s nothing to see here. Move along, move along. Otherwise, hello there!
“Hokey religions and ancient weapons are no match for a good blaster at your side, kid.”
~ Han Solo
That quote has no real bearing upon anything, but I feel it’s important that we start off on the same foot here. My fellow half-witted, scruffy-looking Nerf herders—be welcome.
(Quick anecdote: this newsletter was briefly named ‘Hokey Religions and Ancient Weapons,’ but I was afraid people would think it was a history newsletter or something.)
Hi, I’m Eric.
I started writing pop culture articles in 2019 and discovered I quite liked it. I have a ton of articles on Medium, many of them in the Fanfare publication I run on Medium. I also contribute regularly to /Film and Den of Geek.
This newsletter has nothing to do with Fanfare, a publication I run on Medium, other than sharing a logo, because I paid for it and I love the whimsical feel of it.
But mostly because I paid for it.
I think about pop culture a lot and have Opinions about much of it, but my style is bent toward earning a laugh. We keep things loose around here. Unless the Greedo apologists show up, then all bets are off.
“You’ve never heard of the Millennium Falcon?”
What do you get in exchange for your email address? I need to determine the ideal cadence and format, but assume 1-3 weekly articles, in some combination of opinion pieces, recommendations, and links to stuff I’ve published.
