When You Suck At Pop Culture
This morning at work, my co-workers were fan-girling over new movies coming out. I sat there quietly. Even my boss who's pretty terrible at pop culture knew what they were talking about. And I thought to myself, "my god...what kind of heavy rock (not music) have I been sleeping under?" But you see, this is my life over all things concerning pop culture. Since I never watch television, or keep up with the next-hottest-thing and which-celebrity-banged-who, I am totally in the dark about a lot of things. I do know who the Kardashians are, though. So I guess I am not that terrible? Right???

"Hey! Let's go to trivia!"

Going for a night of trivia feels worse than sober karaoke. Because no matter how much you drink, the answers won't come to you. And you sit there at the bar thinking, how the hell do people stuff this much pop culture knowledge into their heads?

When In Doubt, Secretly Google The Answer

After a handful of moments when everyone gives you that what-the-hell-is-wrong-with-you stare for not knowing who someone is, you just sit silently. Instead of asking who or what something is, you just Google the answer.

Ask The Tumblr Experts (But Go As ANON)

Asking pop culture question under ANON just saves your from public internet ridicule. But god...you just hope there's someone out there who wants to ask the same question.

"I Know You Love Salsa Music -- Who's Your Favorite Musician?"

You love listening to a certain genre of music, but sometimes you just can't remember the name of the music artist you listen to everyday. I mean...you're just bad at names, right?

You Learn To Fake It

Sometimes you just end up making believe you know a pop culture thing. It just makes things easier. Some people just don't get how you know so much about the intricacies of social issues, but can't name out pivotal musicians or artists. But it is what it is.

Yea seriously it would be nice to know other people who don't really care about other people they don't even know in person haha. like of i met a star and befriend them I'd just duresctly ask them how they were I still wouldn't go snooping like the tabloid ju kys or tabloid workers haha. but that's just an opinion.
I wouldn't even know if a celebrity is a celebrity lol. I think. I only know the realllyyy famous ones like Britney Spears and The Kardashians haha. @DeadlyCyanide
