Here it is folks!

So, here we are.  I finally did it.  I finally created that auxiliary blog I've been talking about for a while.

The genesis of this blog has come from a number of things.  Mainly the fact that I've discovered that I have opinions about all sorts of pop culture things that are unconnected to fairy tales, legends and children's fantasy books and that I'd like to have a place to express them.

A short list of things in pop culture that made me say "Man, I wish I had a blog to talk about that" include: Wonder Woman, Funko Pops, Universal Monsters, Power Rangers, Super Sentai, Smurfs, the X-Men, Digimon, Pokemon, Andi Mack, manga, retro arcade games, and cooking shows among others (I can't promise I'll get to all these).

I did manage to use my personal Facebook page to talk about Andi Mack as well as the new Mummy and Wonder Woman movies.  But now I have a place set aside just for that sort of thing.

this blog will be updated more on a "drop-in" basis.  Basically, whenever there's something I want to talk about that doesn't fit on Fairy Tale Fandom, it will get posted here.

You might be wondering about the title of the blog, though.  The truth is that I had the hardest time coming up with a title.  That is, until I ended up reading someone else's blog that had a title drawn from a movie quote.  Figuring that approach would work as well as anything, I pulled an old comic book quote from my memory.  It was from the '90s miniseries DC vs Marvel.  Aside from the dual publishing by two different comic book companies, it was your typical '90s comic book event.  Fun, but nothing spectacular.  In the course of it though, DC and Marvel created a new character named Access who had the ability to move between universes.  And at the end of the series, the narration talks about Access and says something like "For universes beckon.  And when universes beckon, which of us can say no?"

Maybe not a perfect title, but I think it'll work.

So, keep checking back in this space.  You never know what's coming up.
