Culture Lust by Angela Carone

Still from the film Come Wander with Me by Phillip Van.

We live in an age where everyone fancies themselves a filmmaker and they've got a YouTube video to prove it.  On YouTube, you can find plenty of short films competing for your attention.  I've talked to people who've just emerged from a YouTube stupor, their eyes glassy and searching for a horizon.  You can get lost for hours there, wading through junk and occasionally striking gold.  Personally, I appreciate those moments in this modern life when someone or some event comes along to mediate that vast landscape of content, saying "Hey, my media-weary traveler, rest here.  I'll introduce you to really good work. I've spent an entire year looking around so you don't have to."  At times like these, l'll gladly sit my fanny down and eagerly await my fortune.
