With fall in full swing, we decided it was time to revamp our Culture Lust social media presence. In the coming weeks, be sure to check out interesting arts and culture posts on our Facebook and Twitter pages.

We'll post links to stories we find fascinating, and we'd love for you to use the Culture Lust Facebook Wall to share stories you discover while surfing the interwebz. It's a big place and all of us could use the help separating the wheat from the chaff. We'll also post work by artists and musicians we like, and the occasional quirky video.

In the past couple of days, we've posted links to articles on:

-La Jolla Playhouse's 2012-13 season opener, 'Hands on a Hardbody'

-Quirky visual artist John Purlia

-Eclectic punk-mariachi band Mariachi El Bronx

-The ArtPower! program at UCSD "where emerging art and pop culture collide”

-Wilco's Tiny Desk Concert at NPR

-Artist Rubén Ortiz-Torres 1980s punk scene-inspired work at the San Diego Museum of Art

We've also posted these stories and posed questions to our Facebook fans:

-"Our species loves to gather things together." The Smart Set contributor Jessa Crispin explores the fascination with collecting. What do you collect and why?

-From Patti Smith to Shakespeare, NPR staffers share their favorite remakes. What's your favorite remake and why?

Consider the Culture Lust Facebook and Twitter pages a perfect place to share your thoughts on all arts and culture-related news.

We'd love to hear your story!

Basically, this is a plea for you to "Like" us on on Facebook and follow us on Twitter.

It's pathetic we know, but we think we're really likeable. So don't make us beg. Just "Like" us already.

In the words of Ben Greenberg, star of my current TV guilty pleasure "How to Make it in America,"

"You can't knock the hustle."
