What's something popular you've tried to enjoy but just don't. For me, it's Breaking Bad.
I don't watch television. Never bought a TV.
"You are culturally deprived," my boyfriend said and bought me a Samsung smart TV in 2014. I just watch movies on Netflix.
Never drink soda pop. "Soda pop is just chemicals and sugar," I taught my daughter.
For over 35 years, I have not eaten hamburger, preserved meats, processed foods, deep fried or fast food.
I don't follow sports teams. Baseball is severely boring. A boyfriend once took me to watch a Seattle Mariners (name?) baseball game. The highlight was watching the clamshell roof open and close.
most popular music .. from Andre Rieu to whatever it is that attempts to wail out todays pop tunes.
The whole gospel music style - happy clappy to vocal gymnastics because they can;t hold a note.
Most celebrities - Kar dashiun arses and all the others who do nothing but self promotion
Blue stilton cheese - eat lots of cheese, but can;t stand stilton
Guns and armaments in general - were part of my work - would be happier if we melted down the lot
GoT and any other crap about dragons, werewolves, zombies etc
talent shows like Britains got talent - yes we have, but not on this show
Stupid people - so many around they must be popular - personally just don't cope well with them
First past the post voting system - ok for a club president - undemocratic way to choose a government
Hey I could go on - but that's probably enough to explain why I prefer most dogs to most people
My ex was into Breaking Bad in a big way. I saw a couple of episodes and I fully understand why so many people rated it so highly - the story is superb, it's been brilliantly rendered into the multi-episode format, the acting is excellent and the cinematography is near perfect. But, for some reason, I just wasn't hooked.
I'm gonna try a different take. There's a whole laundry list, a Walgreens receipt or two long easy, of pop culture bullshit I just don't like.
However, with the majority of it, I can see why other people like it. I can appreciate it as an art form, or for some intrinsic value I just don't place much stock in.
It keeps me grounded, keeps me from raging against stupid shit, and I stay low-key.
Rarely, however, I can't find any of that. And the target of this mini-rant ...
is fucking Twitter.
All the shit people direct at Facebook can go straight to Twitter. People's lives get ruined on there every stinking day, and the vast majority of it is just companies tweeting at each other, seeing who can be wittier and sell more cheap ass sandwiches.
People use it for breaking news, but there are still better and faster ways to do it. There's this stupid ass, obnoxious hashtag culture that has cheapened literally everything meaningful, there's 10,000 bots for every real poster and honestly? What's left?
The people who can't shut the fuck up even when they're alone.
