Hi all!

This blog is a joint venture by PandaDeTueur and OtherVictorian that is focused on the tidbits of popular culture that we see fit to examine and talk about. The articles on this blog will be a mixture of reviews, rants, examinations, and on the (very) rare occasion, probably some discussion of celebrities. We hope to expand this to being a project that goes beyond just the two of us, as the more view points the better the blog.

Now, for a little bit about the name:

Culture Vulture - someone who is very keen to see and experience art, theatre, literature, music etc.

Carrion Bag - the carrying case for all the bits of decaying culture that we pick up.

"What has become alien to men is the human component of culture, its closest part, which upholds them against the world. They make common cause with the world against themselves, and the most alienated condition of all, the omnipresence of commodities, their own conversion into appendages of machinery, is for them a mirage of closeness." - Theodor Adorno
