When I was a kid, I occasionally got to watch Riverdance on TV with my Mom. I got hooked on the Irish music and, subsequently, with Celtic culture. That eventually led to an interest in Insular Celtic history and the blend of Roman, Anglo-Saxon, and Norse culture (basically the many historical cultures of England and Ireland up to the early middle ages—I don't quite have an interest in the high middle ages yet). I don't necessarily know a lot about it all, but I find it fascinating. Also, I don't know if it has changed me much, other than made me think about culture extinction and blending, but it's a fun hobby and I love it.

Pretty much nerd culture.

If you saw my fandom thread then you know I'm in WAYYY too many fandoms.

I don't wanna sound like a historical hipster here but I'd be really interested to go back in time and witness Roman culture. For their time they were the most advanced civilization in the world, even after they changed their religion. I'd like to hear authentic Latin, watch plays, go to the circus and watch chariot races, bathe in natural spas, visit all the modern-day cities that were built by the Romans in their time (Paris, Tolouse, Marseilles, Toledo, Milan, Naples, Constantinople, London, Antioch...) it's amazing how when the Romans were the most powerful force in Europe, if you look over at Japan they were still a hunter-gatherer society during Rome's expansion era.

Mmmm. Hip-hop, fanfiction, and fandoms.

Doesn't anyone else find this concept of culture fascinating? In the past, most people would only have had contact with local people around them. Today, anyone can connect with anyone else regardless of where they are in the world, leading to the creation of all these niche/small sub-cultures and groups, many of which exist only on the internet.

While to us this is common, it wasn't always like this in the past.


FYI: Broadly speaking, I belong in the gaming and anime communities.
