How Social Media Saved the World

It cannot be understated that we are living through a history-making difficult time. Hundreds of thousands of people are falling victim to a global pandemic and everyone is else either staying home or acting brazenly stupid. It shouldn't be surprising, though, that one of the upshots of all of this is that there has been a rise in meme-making.

First defined by Richard Dawkins in 1976 as a cultural idea that takes on a life of its own and is passed down through generations much the same way that genes are, the word "meme" has itself taken on a life of its own to define pictures made and passed around on the Internet that often lampoon various aspects of life. I don't think I've seen any new memes in the past few days that weren't about the COVID-19 epidemic. But this isn't the first time a global catastrophe has been made fun of in what could be described as a "childish" fashion. In fact, one of the memes I've seen compared the uptick in Cor…

Who am I?

Well maybe I'm not a tomato, but if not then who the heck am I? I am Nick Parham. I have been writing and blogging for a while now, it is a fun hobby and a real stress reliever. See I have frequented this blog and yes there are great articles on Sci-fi (SYFY WTH?) and just straight up news on whats new with the people in the industry.

Movies, music, video games and words are my forte. False environments, new settings, new people and new worlds can be explored with a little film or a few words, and the bounderies are within your imagination... no they are your imagination and I believe that the imagination is the key to the human brain, the thing that holds us back or sets us apart.

Back on track, I am Nick Parham, movie theater employee, avid pc gamer, reader and writer and I believe that I am here to blog because well, I have the know. Television shows are my main focus, I have watched over 150 series, every episode from old to new. I have worked at a movie theater for three long grueling years now, and looking back I dont regret a moment of it. I have seen the hottest, newest, freshest movies out there right on release and it has given me a new outlook on movies, why watch only one genre you like, when there are so many good movies out there?

Well its time to get ready for work, I should have pre-ordered my iPhone 3Gs today but obviously my hours at work didnt think so, so that must wait! as will you for my next post.

I am looking forward to writing more nonsensical BS here often, maybe think over my words before I type them next time but hey its early and work is on its way.
