It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. I am a fan of pop culture. It would seem to be that MOST people are. Not all, but most. In fact I know a chick who doesn't know any celebrities. You could say a name, and she would have no idea who it is. She loves movies, enjoys them, but has no clue who the actors are.
Kinda weird, but kinda cool at the same time. I wish I had that ability to not know. I don't care who the actors are, but I know who they are. I retain the information, and I also get bombarded with it by the media.
Whenever a new movie comes out, the actors go on television and radio shows to promote the movie. I don't want to see that. I don't want to know that. They do not make me want to see the movie. It does nothing for me. However I am stuck with useless information.
I listened to an interview with some actor about his up and coming movie The interview was HORRIBLE. He said nothing of value. The questions asked him how he felt during the shooting, how he got along with directors, how much he identified with the character.
Seriously...you PEOPLE MAGAZINE folks like this stuff? WHY? What do you get out of it? What value does it add to your life to know every detail of every movie? This is busy time. This is you getting caught up in something so you have some sort of connection to it.
Ever attend a party, and out of the blue someone shouts out about so and so's celebrity wedding? Ugh! Why do you know this? Do you know this because you've been bombarded with it like me, or do you know this because you actually care?
Stop the madness.
