Iambic Interview: “Who Influenced The Auralia Thread?” “Why Is Fantasy So Popular?”

At the blog Iambic Admonit, I’ve been interviewed about The Auralia Thread and the state of modern moviegoing. This was a challenging interview: I could have written an essay for almost every question, including…

  • Who influenced The Auralia Thread?
  • Why is fantasy so popular right now?
  • What topics are trending in movies today?
  • What is the state of “spirituality” in movies today?

I’m afraid that I actually did contribute some essay-length in response. So follow the link and check out the conversation… but it will require some sustained attention.

Many thanks to Sorina Higgins for the interview!
