I'm old. Do you understand the Jonas Brothers craze? I sure as hell don't either, but look at what the kids and teens today are going ballistic over! Hannah Montana, High School Musical, and that huge blockbuster movie Twilight! I'm out of it man! And all these songs that now make the top ten; most of these artists I just can't get into! Rhianna? Chris Brown? T-Pain? WHAT?! And I've lost track of all the reality shows that teens watch too, but thank God I guess for The Soup, where at least I can be a bit informed about what is going on. Pop culture in America is ever-so-mutable, and I never thought I'd be so irritated by most of what is now popular, but I just am. I observe my niece and the music she's into and I find it fascinating. Just the other day I asked her if she liked Madonna, and she said she only liked the song she did with Justin Timberlake. LOLOL! Used to be the kids and teens liked Madonna on her own merits! DAMN! I'm old. Let's face it; I watch PBS, classic films, and other educational crap that I never would have even bothered with in my true earlier youth. Oh well, it happens to us all I suppose, BUT I ALWAYS THOUGHT I'D BE WITH IT! LOL!
Michael Phelps is such an ugly dork. And yet, he is so damn sexy. I don't get it really. He had a cool interview on 60 Minutes this past Sunday and is now making headlines again. For all the success this young man has achieved in his short 23 years on this planet, I'm willing to bet he's probably lame/awkward in bed. LOL! I say this so I don't feel too bad about never having him.
One of my co-workers was in London not too long ago, and brought me back this:
Pretty cool huh?
Christina Aguilera! On fire:
