2012 in review

30 Dec

Culture Bean began as an experiment as 2012 was born. I wanted a place to write and think about culture–particularly screen culture and word culture. Given that my teaching gig had ended, I was hoping to find others with whom to converse online about topics that sparked my imagination.  I got off to a fast start, but then slowed down when we moved cross-country and I took a pretty fulltime job.

My hat is off to Brandon Isaacson, a former student and my top commenter. Thanks for taking the ride.

With any luck, I’ll get 2013 off to a big start and keep going. I’ve been collecting a lot of cultural experiences; now I just need to make time to write about them.

Here’s my 2012 annual report, with help from and thanks to the WordPress “Helper Monkeys.”

Here’s an excerpt:

600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 2,300 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 4 years to get that many views.

    Happy new year! And thank you (if I recall properly, which is rare) for recommending Beasts of the Southern Wild, which I saw and loved last weekend.
