It’s come to my attention that it’s been about 2 months since I posted anything on StateLines.com.
The reason is simple. As you may have guessed by the title of this post, I stink at keeping up with Pop-Culture these days. StateLines.com is a Pop-Culture blog. You can see my dilemma.
Things weren’t always like this. When I signed up to do this blog months ago I felt very confident in my knowledge of current Pop Culture. I could sing the latest Jeremy Beiber song, I knew all about the Miami Flames and their run at the NBA Championship, and I was the first in line when the last Twilight Movie, “The Return of Harry Potter”, came out in theaters.
I was Partyin in the USA and doing the Twist, but it seems so difficult to keep up with trends at the ripe old age of 24. I haven’t even seen the final 8 episodes of “Breaking Bad” yet! Between work, relationships, funtivities (thats “fun” and “activities” put together to form one awesome word), and all the various responsibilities I have, keeping up with the latest trends seems to always fall last on my list.
I mean, I literally just watched the movies “Taken” & “Pitch Perfect” after hearing people talk about them for years. The latest incarnation of Miley Cyrus and her crazy music/dancing at VMA’s just popped up on my radar (and I haven’t stopped singing “We Can’t Stop” since. My friends are getting annoyed).
I have a feeling though that I’m not the only one out there who is struggling to keep up with current trends amongst the busyness of life. So if you are like me and cutting ties with all your loved ones so you can move to a cabin in the woods and watch all 5 seasons of Breaking Bad isn’t an option, allow me to catch you up on some of the big news in Pop Culture as of October 15th, 2013.
1. We Landed on The Moon!
That’s right folks, I just found out recently that mankind successfully traveled into space and landed on the moon. I know, I was as shocked as those of you reading this. I’m honored to help break this wonderful news to you!
2. Osama Bin Laden Was Captured By Dwight Schrute!
I always thought Dwight was bluffing when he would talk about his abilities and crazy ideas on the Office, but I recently learned that we got Osama Bin Laden. Based on this video, I can only conclude that this is how it happened.
3. Kanye West Ruins Taylor Swift Speech!
I can’t believe what I just witnessed in this news clip. Kanye West interrupts a heartfelt acceptance speech by Taylor Swift at an awards show on some kind of music television station by saying that someone named Beyawnsay had the best video of all time. I dont know who this Mr. West thinks he is, but I hope he apologizes to that poor Swift girl. She seemed to know he was Trouble as soon as he walked on the stage.
Well. That’s it folks. Not too much else happened recently that is worthy of mentioning.
I’m off to my local DMV to renew some license plates. After that I’m going to call my Congressman and tell him what a good job he is doing.
Wait…. what? Our Government is shutdown?! Since when?
