As suggested by Wafflicious: What was the first piece of pop culture you discovered “on your own”? As opposed to someone suggesting it to you, or something your friends were already into? And what are some others you’ve happened upon?
Maybe you saw a CD in a store and thought it looked intriguing? Or a book in the library that had a great cover or jacket blurb? Or a music video on YouTube that popped into your feed? Or a show you stumbled across while flipping channels?
