Sally Field in the late 1960s.

If you aren’t secretly in love with Sally Field then please check your pulse. Throughout the 60s Field starred in shows like ABC's Gidget, where she played a beach bunny who was desperate to smooch a surfer boy, and The Flying Nun, a series about a nun who was so skinny that she could fly when the wind was right. Yes, that was a show. And yes, it ran for 82 episodes.

 Somehow Sally Field made it out of the 60s and went on to star in classic films like Smokey and the Bandit, Steel Magnolias, and Forrest Gump.

Brian Gilmore has been writing about and studying everything the Internet loves since 2006 and you've probably accidentally read something he's written before, and if you haven't, you're already reading this bio, so that's a good start. He's a culture junkie ranging from Internet culture, to world history, to listening to way more podcasts than the average human being ever should. He's obsessed with the social catalysts that have caused some of the biggest movements of the last few hundred years, including everything from their effect on the pop culture of the time, to where they end up ideologically. The idea that generations have a beginning and an end is fascinating to him, and the fact that their lasting effects at any given point of their evolution can steer the direction of the entire world lead to some interesting questions, and answers, about our current culture at any given time. He also loves retrofuturism, phobias, and the fact that every pop culture icon has at least a few photos of them that make you feel like you might know them. History isn't a collection of stories as much as it is humanity trying its hardest to maintain a grasp on lessons we've learned before as a species, and that is just way too interesting to not look into a few hours a week. Oh and he used to collect Pez dispensers.
