A lot of folks like to overthink entertainment, but we think it’s pretty simple. Entertainment is a beautiful distraction from everyday life, the story, song, movie, or show that whisks us away for a few minutes or hours and shows us something new. That’s it, no more and certainly no less, and it means something different to each and every one of us. One man’s weekly TV drama is another man’s music festival—different paths to the same happy outcome.
So, while entertainment may be simple, it’s also serious business. We care about that plot twist, album release, and new movie trailer as much as the next person, so we’re not going to skimp the details as soon as we know them. The world could use a beautiful distraction or two, and our readers are going to get them sooner than just about anyone else. If you can watch it, hear it, play it, or attend it, Outsider is going to cover it.
