On the heels of the movie Fifty Shades of Grey, I sat down with Madison, the CEO of Blue Ridge Books, to find out how the movie industry has changed since its release in 2013.
Madison is an avid reader, which she credits to reading novels and magazines like Harper’s Bazaar and The Economist.
“I’m always interested in books and I love to read,” she says.
“I was reading a lot of the novels and the magazines, especially the Economist, that were published in the early 2000s.
It was a little weird because it was the year the first [iPhone] came out, so I was reading and it was a really different time.””
Fifty was the first book that I really thought about reading.
I was like, ‘I need to read this book now, because I’m going to have to do that in the next five years, because it’s the one book I think I need to get out of the house now.'”
Madison also has a particular interest in pop culture, with her affinity for TV shows like Game of Thrones and Mad Men.
“It’s so interesting because I am a huge fan of pop culture.
I’ve always been interested in reading and I’m like, there’s this thing called ‘fandom’ and that’s what I am, a fan of the television show Mad Men,” she said.
“And then I had this conversation with a friend of mine, who is a comic book guy and he’s a huge ’90s-era comic book fan, and he said, ‘Oh, I love ’90ies comic books.
I’m an old-school comic book lover.
I grew up on ’90ys comic books, I think the first one I read was ‘The Amazing Spider-Man.'”
I was like wow, that’s really awesome, and I think that’s one of the reasons why I became a comic artist is because I love reading comic books.
“I’m a huge TV fan, but it’s not that I want to watch ’80s TV shows.
I like ’90f shows, but I’m not a big TV fan right now.”
But I think it’s a good way to get to know the world, and also it’s an interesting way to explore new things and new stories that are on the air,” she added.
Madisons love of comics began at a very young age.”
And then I got into the world of ’90as and ’00s comics, and they were just all over my walls.”””
It was really fun.
And then I got into the world of ’90as and ’00s comics, and they were just all over my walls.””
I loved it.
I would just watch it, I would sit there, and you know what, it was just really fun, and it would just just be me reading this and this and then I’d sit down with my friends and we’d all go out and play with these little toys.”
Madison has also been a huge comics fan since she was a child, but her affinity with books began with an early exposure to graphic novels.
She remembers playing with her sister’s collection of graphic novels, “The Amazing Colossal Adventures,” and discovering that the stories were “really, really fun.”
“So, I was always interested, and at this point, I had my own collection of the books, and one of them was ‘Fingerpaint’ and I thought, ‘Wow, this is a really fun book.
It’s got all these characters and they’re so cute and so silly, and there’s all these different worlds and this really weird story,” she recalled.
“But then I started reading the ‘Fingerspaint Book’ and it just kind of blew my mind, it had this amazing world and I just loved it so much.”
Madisons passion for the world’s favorite book began in high school, when she read the graphic novel series ‘My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic.’
“It was so good, I just wanted to read all of those books,” she continued.
“Then, at the same time, I started watching TV, and so I started thinking, I want my kids to read and be exposed to a lot more of the world.”
“It just seemed like a good time to try and get into the comic book world,” she agreed.
“There was a time when I was trying to do all of my own art and I had been trying to get into all the writing, and all of that, and everything else, I really needed to do.
And I just kind was so frustrated.
I just needed to give up and just start over.”
