I had a moment of realizing how out of pop culture I was when I heard Weird Al's latest poka medley and recognized only 2 songs from it.

Hmm, pop culture. Television. I find there to be something strangey entrancing about pop culture, even if I don't like it. I was addicted to VH1 when I was in college. I have found myself basically bored with it, though. It's not a concious effort to not keep up or not watch TV or whatever; I just don't. I've sad down probably 5 times in the last two weeks intending to watch movies and just gotten bored and not finished them. Theoretically I believe there to be some sort of delightful artifice to pop culture, but it's just come to bore me.

I don't think I've completely lost the fascination that pop culture holds. It's just that nowadays I only appreciate that delightful artifice of various subcultures with which I identify. Knowing all the latest internets crazes and game console gossip has a very similar flavor to it to knowing fully mainstream pop culture; one's just held my interest in shiny objects a bit better.

And I don't think I've seen Pam fully naked and not censored. I've seen plenty of magazine covers covering the naughty bits or clips of the sex video with the naughty bits blurred out. But I don't recall actually seeing it all hang out. I'm sure the internet can fix this for me. There, now I've seen her naked.

well, I wasn't saying you had to see Pam naked. It just surprised me. If you google for her, the top image shows her naked. I actually had to do quite a bit of searching to find a good pic of her for this post that was reasonably work-safe.

I would have counted seeing censored footage of her as having seen her naked. I was more shocked by people who hadn't seen her at all.

Anyway, how far off of being pop culture aware are you? I'm not advocating being glued to the tube, but I think having a base understanding of celebrity news is pretty important. Are you aware that Britney Spears is getting divorced? Are you aware that Madonna is attempting to adopt a little african boy? Are you aware that OJ tried to publish a book about the the Brown/Goldman murder and it is now being pulled? That sort of thing.

Given an LJ handle of "lonelocust", I imagine you were at least in tune with Space Ghost at one point.
