Does Collecting Make You Feel Dirty?
Consistency Is the Gob Hobbling
A little while ago I sat down to read for a few minutes. Grabbing the magazine nearest to hand, I started reading Entertainment Weekly. After a while, I thought to myself, "I have been tuning out popular culture of a non-political nature even more than I thought. Now that the election is over, I really need to get up to speed." Fifteen minutes after that, I finally realized that I was reading the August 11, 2000 issue. It's amazing how little the magazine's format and prose have changed over the past eight-plus years.

My friend and studiomate Wendy is addicted to pop culture things. I picked up her US Weekly or something-or-other and I realized that I didn't know 80% of the celebrities in the magazine.

It felt both good and bad.

I realized, after I posted the entry, that I'm only slightly more conversant in the entertainment news of 2008 than I am in the sort from 2000. If I didn't spend time in the supermarket check-out line, I might have to be sent off to the cultural literacy reeducation camp that will take the place of Gitmo.

And it's great to hear from you. I've been a poor LJer of late. But I always cheer to see your entries. And I was reminded, reorganizing my closet yesterday, that I need to wear my awesome beard shirt more often.
