That’s it?

16 11 2009

It’s been a few months now and we’ve officially reached the point where we no longer are in touch with American pop culture. I do my best by reading Perez Hilton almost every day and we both click through to the NYT often enough, but in terms of the little things you pick up from the media- we’re simply out of touch.

Case in point- We’ve begun to notice that our dvd stores have movies we’ve never heard of. It’s hard to tell whether it’s a straight to video release, a Russian or European release or a big Hollywood movie we simply didn’t know existed because it came out after we left. Remember that the knock-off DVDs show up on the street in China very quickly. In fact, we watched This Is It this evening. Jeremiah bought it last week for 10 quai (about $1.50.) We will admit that we fast forwarded though the boring songs. Sheesh, MJ! Enough with loving the environment already. How green is the Staples Center you’re holding rehearsals in? Did you know that Roger Ebert gave it 4 stars? Hm.

love, Missy
