Everywhere I click today people are talking about the death of Anthony Bourdain. I had no idea, or very little idea, of who he was – something to do with food, and television? I googled him of course, saw images of him, they didn’t ring any bells – never laid eyes on his image before.
Pop culture seems to have passed me by and the only time I notice it is when I get stumped doing the NYT crossword. Anything having to do with any Disney production – not a clue. Anything to do with any of the myriad animated television shows; talent competition shows; latest Broadway musicals (oh wait, they are all based on Disney stuff and animated television shows). You can also safely assume I have no knowledge of any of the recent (say last 15 years!) superhero movies. Oh hell, even tho I read the reviews, I have little personal knowledge of any movies in easily the last 20 years.
We won’t even discuss the music ‘scene’ ’cause I’m just not makin’ that scene.
Books, Music, Television, Movies, Fashion – I’ve totally lost touch. And it doesn’t perturb me much except when I get stumped by a crossword puzzle clue.
