I realized a few days ago that I could make an Amish farmer blush with my lack of current TV, movie, and book culture knowledge. I have been reading the “Best of 2009” lists on the web and I have never even heard of 90% of them let alone seen them or read them. I have also never heard of at least half of the so-called superstars in a copy of People magazine that I looked though in the waiting room at a doctors office recently.
I watch very little TV in general and I don’t go to movies. I read books but they tend to be non-fiction and older. It isn’t a matter of principle at all. It simply doesn’t fit into my lifestyle because I am 36 years old and have two young daughters and I have other obligations most of the time.
Ask me what I know about any aspect of pop culture off the top of my head. I promise not to look anything up and I am not afraid to make a fool out of myself. I am sure I will get most of it wrong anyway.
Ask the pop-culture idiot anything you want to know about it right here and now and I will give it my best shot.
