  • Pauli is well versed in European cinema, and keeps a "Mads Mikkelsen list" of actors from Scandinavian dramas and goofy comedies who'll inevitably end up playing Hollywood villains.
  • Due to his incurable habit of scribbling notes and article ideas during screenings, he owns a collection of battered Moleskines that are full of some of the worst handwriting known to man.
  • Before Pauli discovered the internet, he was a finalist in the 2009 Portti science fiction writing competition with his short story, "After War Came."


Pauli has written thousands of articles for various online outlets since 2011, collaborating with some of the finest wordcrafting minds of the internet to surf the pop culture zeitgeist. Apart from his work on Looper, Grunge, Mashed, The Modern Rogue, TopTenz, and others, he was a regular columnist for comedy juggernaut from 2013 to 2017, covering a wide variety of subjects and crafting pop culture analysis for up to millions of readers every week. A lifelong student of pop culture trends, Pauli is well-informed in a number of entertainment industry topics. You may have read his printed words in the books "The De-Textbook: The Stuff You Didn't Know About the Stuff You Thought You Knew," and "'s Epic Book of Mind-Boggling Lists."
