IT’S NOT EASY TO LEAVE YOUR COUNTRY, PEOPLE AND HABITS THAT MAKE YOUR LIFE.
It is true that this adventure is the subject of everyone’s wishes. There is no person that did not wake up one morning with a thought, “If only I had the chance for a new beginning”. White paper on which we will print our life again seems so wonderfully tempting until we get it in the hands, and then we are faced with a series of dramatic moments, from extremely serious to completely banal ones.
If you belong to a group of people which I belong to, the ones whose leisure time in the country which they are coming from was filled with premieres of films, new seasons of TV series, anticipation of new translations of books by appreciated authors, collections of comics as well as happiness because of the performance of your favorite music artists, then moving to another country, where they speak the language you do not understand at all, or at least you do not speak well, will be an experience that you will not easily forget.
My first months in Copenhagen were marked as clumsy attempts of translating everything I came upon. Google Translate this, Google Translate that. It seems simple, but actually it is not, and it is even less fun. Getting around cinema repertoires in an unknown language, searching your favorite TV and streaming content in a new country, finding bookstores that sell books and comic books in English and obtaining information where there is good music this weekend … All this can be very frustrating when you’ve just recently become an expat, and there is no need to be like that!
PopCulture digital magazine is created with an idea to get the said type of activity back on the track. From the cover story of the magazine that brings an exclusive article about a new season of The Walking Dead, through the interview with Måns Zelmerlöw, to free e-books for all readers, the brilliant novel Reconstructed by Tasha Black, the first issue is full of content that will improve the day of any fan of popular culture in Scandinavia.
Enjoy the Scandinavian autumn & find your favorite source of entertainment in a new city. See you next month,
Editor in Chief
