I've been a geek I believe as long as I can remember, always attracted to things like science fiction, fantasy, etc. I'm not so involved in it as others I have met that seem to not be able to differentiate between fact and fiction, but I do find myself strangely drawn to these and other subjects. The past few days I have had a desire to write a hub related to Star Wars, but it seemed I couldn't find the right way to convey what kind of impact it has had on my life without sounding like I have gone a bit overboard, so I thought I would see how many people are impacted by the entertainment industry beyond simple entertainment.
An example is that growing up I had lost my mother, moved in with a new family with some other drama, and got involved with some people that I shouldn't, so on and so forth. There's no events in Star Wars that I directly relate to (saving the galaxy from an evil empire and such), but more it was a source of escape that I found during those times as a small kid that ended up moving it beyond simply being a set of films and into becoming a friend of sorts. It was something that was there and stable for me when everything else wasn't. So as an adult, I find myself still infatuated with that universe because of the familiar feelings it stirs as opposed to the actual content (though c'mon, lightsabers are pretty cool.)
Anyway, what entertainment mediums have you found yourself impacted by on a personal level?
Most good film productions, mostly American, British and European, and some TV, of which there are about a hundred. Why watch if I am not impacted in a good way. A vicarious life. I have to watch it if it is great. It is art.

Since I learned of Micheal's death which still continues to shock me, I noticed that I have gone through my whole CD and album collection of his songs and have watched the movie the Wiz. I have also viewed more videos of Michael on You Tube, remembering all the good memories. Is anyone...

I posted this on my facebook page and guess how many responses I got? None. This type of question really makes you think too hard. How would you respond?If you were to add to your facebook page all the people who you know your life has impacted, how many friends would you have?
