Hell of a Thing is dedicated to exploring and interacting with art and culture around us on an intellectual and thoughtful level. By examining, reviewing, and interacting with art and culture, we hope to show the world why art and culture are important and necessary to our lives. We also hope to help everyone find or think about something new that they consider a Hell of a Thing. While doing this, we aim to avoid the all-too-common stance of pretentiousness or pessimism about certain things we like or don’t like, and strive to stick to a more productive and critical examination of different media and cultural related topics.
