There are many instances throughout human existence where someone is moved to try something new. For whatever reason they do it, a new pathway is grown, and possibilities for change are enhanced. I know someone who never wishes to try sushi. And that is fine. But for that cultural objection to another culture’s food, they miss out. Comic books used to be viewed as mind numbing children’s books, and bad ones at that. But not all of them were, and as comics matured, so have some people’s views of them. But there will always be people who view comics as a poor medium. But story telling is throughout the creative mediums of culture, whether to create, reflect, dive into, or just look at, we have a common interest in story telling. We want in this blog to chat about anything that our culture, and our culture’s mediums discuss. We hope by doing this we can engage the reader, grow our own store of knowledge, and to interact with people who might otherwise never tried the sushi, and would have loved it.
If you like sushi or not is not the point. That you might like it and never know that is the point. Poplitiko is a gathering of friends who want to know more about the world they live, share ideas, and appreciate the stories the mediums of our culture tell.
