Dr. Fun

Ever notice how on Cheers all Sam and Diane did was fight…then passionately make up? Or in movies how the heroine always seems like she just finished a Cover Girl photoshoot? Well, ASU’s own Dr. Mary-Lou Galician, known to many as “Dr. Fun,” did – so much so that she teaches courses and writes books on recognizing the myths the media teaches us (ahem, DISNEY!).

For the past two years, I have had the pleasure of working with Dr. Galician to choose her annual “Stupid Cupid” awards – the films, songs and TV shows that best illustrate the 12 myths of romance and love in the mass media. This past weekend we completed the final judging – and I think you all will be surprised at the results, which will be announced on Valentine’s Day on HMA Time. Stay tuned, and in the meantime, take her quizzes online to see how much Sam and Diane really affected you…
