I’m trying to get better about how I consume media. There are enough movies and TV options being churned out that those alone can take entire lifetimes to fill. Since I have a commute that is over an hour long, I try to look for new music and/or podcasts to fill this time but then instead, I listen to music I downloaded in college because that’s what you do.
*Based on the music in this post (Vanilla Ice, etc.), we’re using this term really loosely.
Growing up in the ’90s, I learned everything I know about music and pop culture through constant absorption of TV and movies. Movie soundtracks became pretty essential to my understanding of pop music. Most of the music I listened to in my early childhood were Bollywood soundtracks, so the shift from Bollywood to Hollywood was fairly natural.
