Pop Culture Vacuum

Sometimes I envy Griff and how dejected he is from pop culture. He doesn't care about it and doesn't pay it any attention. He wouldn't know who Lady Gaga is, and only does know because I listen to her. His favorite band is Iron Maiden, and to this day he couldn't tell you the name of ONE MEMBER of that band. But my favorite example came from us driving home one evening.

I have to channel surf the radio. I'm "that person" in the relationship. I landed on Absolute Radio and they were playing Nirvana's "Lithium"; which is probably my favorite Nirvana song if I were to chose I left it there.

Griff: "This song sucks"
Me: "What?"
Griff: "Listen to it! It's horrible!"
Me: "Do you know who this is?"
Griff: "No".

No one says that about Nirvana. Sure most of us probably think they are extremely overrated, but NO ONE goes about admitting that! It just made me laugh...

LOL must be an English thing as Gareth cannot stand Nirvana! But he does know who they are and would recognize them on the radio LOL....too funny.
