Frank, aka PCGuy, has published another one of his Truthful Tuesday posts, and this week Frank wants to know…
What pop culture phenomenon have you bought into?
It’s been a long, long time since I “bought into” any pop culture phenomenon. But when I was in college, I was very into the whole Tolkien thing: The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings trilogy. I had a large poster of the Middle Earth on my wall, and eagerly followed the adventures of the fellowship.
Were you hooked right away, or did it grow on you over time?
I was hooked right away and have reread The Hobbit and the trilogy three times over the years, the last time being when The Lord of the Rings movies were released. I may now give it a fourth reread.
Did you initially get into it because it seemed interesting to you, or did someone recommend it?
I honestly don’t remember if someone recommended Tolkien to me, if I read about it somewhere, or how I discovered it.
Was it just a passing fancy, or are you still a fan?
I’m still a fan.
