Welcome to The Obsessionist. My name is Slade Lane, and this is a new blog dedicated to dissecting different artifacts from pop culture, politics, and personal experience. Through rhetorical analysis we hope to explore how to think instead of what to think.
The name Obsessionist invokes what we hope to be–people driven to the point of concern. Obsessed with deeper dialogue. Obsessed by explicit and implicit meaning. A people not easily satisfied.
Over the next several weeks we will be looking at obsession, breaking it down as a theme. See it through the eyes of a film and its director, in the life of a performer, and look at its permeation in everyday life.
Come along. Join the conversation. And stay obsessed.
