- The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air: I am not joking with you when I say that I had never even heard of this show until this school year. It appears to be part of the "let's rediscover our childhood!" movement that is currently oh-so popular, so I have a question for you guys: has the show always been this popular and I just didn't know about it, or is it currently experiencing a resurgence in popularity?
(Related note: Why did nobody watch "Are You Afraid of the Dark?" Only a handful of people I've asked even recognize the name. Perhaps they were too young to watch it at the time; however, they were also too young to watch The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, yet they still know about THAT.)
- Pokémon: Of course I know what Pokémon is, but I was never a fan of it. I remember a lot of people had whole albums filled with Pokémon cards; I still don't know HOW you're supposed to play the game. Perhaps because I was never a huge fan of cartoon TV shows (save the odd ones like Scooby Doo and Dexter's Laboratory), I never watched an entire episode. I just remember thinking that the Pokémon were adorable and squishy and (somewhat literally) balls of joy and that I liked the Evil Team and their Pokémon because they were funny, and they flew away in a hot air balloon. Thus ends my connection to the whole shebang. (No, I don't know the theme song.)
- *NSYNC: This is less of a "I didn't know they existed" moment and more of a "I like Backstreet Boys SO MUCH MORE that I choose to ignore *NSYNC's existence" moment. Backstreet Boys had SYNCHRONIZED DANCING in a HAUNTED HOUSE. Does it get better than that? No, no it does not.)
Alex: Sorry for not telling you this earlier - I lurrrrrrve* your script! It's hard to know what the film would be like from such a little portion of the words of a page, but it seems to have the potential to be one of those adorable little witty movies, like Juno but without the pregnancy (but with the Canadian-ness!).
Rena: (Do you always get put last? I'm sorry. I alphabetize subconciously. [I understand your pain; in elementary school, I ALWAYS got the last cubby on the very bottom of the stack, unless there was a Zack in my class.]) I clicked on that link... and... IKEA has a dark past? What? But Sweden is so chill and lovely! Why would anyone there ever like the Nazis? (Or anyone anywhere, really.) Also, Pringles are cakes? MMMM, they're the best kind!
