For the most part I think I’m pretty clued in to today’s culture- for someone of my age at least.
When I hear Brett and Amanda talking about a movie or a song I
usually, sometimes, know what they’re talking about. I like a few of the newish pop songs, although I can rarely tell you who is performing them.
Doug on the other hand is clueless.
Ten years ago or so the man didn’t even know that Sonic was a hedgehog. Our grown kids laugh about how clueless their dad is. Now if Sonic had played sports that’s be a different story of course.
Every day on CNN.com in the Entertainment section they have a 5 “celebrities” caught on camera. Usually on a good day, I know maybe 3 outta the 5 people,usually it’s just 2 outta 5.
Today I knew 4!
It must be my lucky day! Perhaps I should get a lotto ticket.
I mean, seriously, just who are these people:
They were featured in the entertainment section recently.
Do any of you know them? Or is it just me?
Doug and I were watching the last 30 minutes of the Today show this morning- the part without Matt Laurer (who I absolutely CANNOT stand. I think he’s a smug prig.)
Anyway, on Friday they have a musical performance out on the plaza by the studio.
Today it was Park JAE-Sang, AKA Psy.
When I heard his name I looked at Doug and said “Who?’
He didn’t know who it was either.
They said this video had over 150 million hits on You Tube.
It’s in Korean for the most part so don’t feel bad if you don’t understand the words.
Does anyone else know who this guy is or did Doug and I just stay down in our fallout shelter too long like Sissy Spacek in Blast from the Past?
I’m not ready to be dismissed as a little old lady just yet and have boy scouts help me across the street cause the tennis ball on my walker gets stuck in a grate on the street; but just how much should a baby boomer be expected to work at keeping up with pop culture these days so they’re not dismissed as dinosaurs?
Feedback would be appreciated.
