The writers of Rock Paper Watch are all close friends who are unfortunately separated by a few hundred miles. So each week, they would email and chat to recap their favorite music, books, movies, shows, and celebs. Not only would they share views and opinions, but they’d share websites, blogs, and theories. One day, after a lengthy discussion around Game of Thrones, they realized it was time to share their conversations with the rest of the world. So, RockPaperWatch.com was born. Our blog is a compilation of our views, opinions, theories, and obsessions with all things pop culture. Whatever way you throw it, there’s something for everyone at Rock Paper Watch!
