The Silent Majority

leave a comment »

There is no starter guide for film and comics are a menacing field if you’re just starting to read.

Every now and again you gleam a nugget of wisdom from an existing savant (podcasts, the CRIMINAL back matter) and you run with it – someone informed you that something was good and lo and behold, it was. So one looks up the director’s other works, or something else the author has done… and it’s out of print. Or the video store lost theirs. And the employees are assholes and the internet says it’s good, but doesn’t say it’s good BECAUSE it’s bad. So next Friday, you’re back to sticking needles in your foreskin, wondering WHAT’S NEXT. WHAT’S NEW. WHAT’S GOOD.

No form of entertainment is accessible for a new audience.

So the Silent Majority exists to challenge that norm. To turn people in the right direction of interesting, ground breaking works of today and yesterday through micro-columns and razor reviews. Inferring the positive, rather than dwelling on the negative and the idle comparisons of the critic medium.

The Silent Majority – because 90% of everything is shit, we ease the search for the other 10.
