I'm testing a theory that Victor Fleming's masterpiece "The Wizard of Oz" is so woven into popular culture that someone or something makes reference to it at least once every day. It comes up in conversations, songs, TV shows, ads, other films, colloquial saying, etc. For one year I'll be updating this blog each time Oz comes up. Check back daily to see if the theory holds water, or melts in it. (And try it yourself. You'll start to notice Oz everywhere, I promise.)

there will be oz

There was an Oz reference today at work, but it's one of those randomly difficult to explain ones. Suffice it to say, I asked a coworker:

"So what do you think we're going for with this?"

And she responded.

"I don't know ... like a Wizard of Oz thing?"

It wasn't what we were going for, but it was a reference none the less.
