Pop music. It’s everywhere, and you either love it or love to hate it. Either way, chances are that you can sing the chorus to “Call Me Maybe” by Carly Rae Jepson… but how much do you know about it? That’s where Todd in the Shadows comes in – my favourite internet pop music reviewer!
Here’s a little taste:
Todd posts on a great nerd website called “That Guy With the Glasses”. There are reviewers for every part of pop culture: music, movies, tv, and comics! They all offer clever, insightful, and feminist commentaries, which makes terrible media much more fun! Here are the ones we regularly watch:
- The Nostalgia Critic: The creator of the site, he takes a look at the movies of our childhood.
- Similarly, the Nostalgia Chick digs into movies, tv, and music from the 80’s and 90’s. I might do a whole post about her later – Her Disney reviews are AWESOME!
- Linkara is the first reviewer we started watching. He does really great critiques of crappy comics!
But back to Todd. If it weren’t for him, I’d never know as much about the bizarrities of Ke$ha or the true career lows of the Black Eyed Peas! As well as breaking down current pop hits, he does some best of/worst of lists and takes a look back at some one-hit wonders (Baby Got Back! Kung Fu Fighting!) If you are ever looking for a quick video to watch while you eat dinner or take a break after work, I highly suggest some Todd in the Shadows!
I’ll leave you with this:
