Default Falling further out of the loop

I used to feel like I had a solid grip on popular culture, particularly music, but now days some celebrity (or alleged celebrity) dies every other day and Iíve never heard of them. Not once. Ever. I wonder what age it is that someone shows up and quietly pulls your card and from that point on you are just officially out of the loop and perpetually unconnected.

I was pretty out of touch by my mid 40s I would say.

Default Out of touch

Back in the 80's and 90's my kids told me that I was out of touch. Now my grandchildren politely giggle and tell me that I am out of touch. The last time I was "in touch" was when the Beatles arrived in America. Since then it has been downhill.

Better to be out of touch than desperate to be young.

Relax, it all more than evens out. Most of us know of most everybody from ancient Greece to mediaeval England
to the Civil War to silent movies to the big band era to yesterday, politicians and writers and artists and athletes
and singers and actors. Ask most people under 40 and they've never heard of anyone from before 2017.

Out of the loop is synonymous with irrelevance from a generational perspective.

The nine stages of life

Diapers
Mobility
Schooling
Knowing it All
Knowing you didn't know it all.
Knowing you know less than you once knew.
Retirement
Immobility
Depends

Saw a bumper sticker today:

"I use to be cool"

At first I thought "Nice grammar, moron"

Then I realized "Maybe they're just bragging about doing drugs."

If you sported a mohawk and listened to Black Flag...
you can at least take solace in the fact that you used to be cool.

I lost it when rap & hip hop became the mainstream music that kids listened to. My musical tastes always leaned towards "Alt" whether it be rock or stripped down acoustic stuff. Then record/CD stores died off. Thank god for satellite radio. Then Netflix Hulu, streaming became a thing...meh. I'm not into science fiction, comics adaptations or horror and that also became a trend...more meh. Thank god for books ....that you now pretty much have to buy online because you can hardly find a bookstore...

In the years since, hardcore punk has become more mainstream but believe me, in 1980 we were considered freaks.

I'm doubly cursed.

I'm in my 40s and I've spent most of my adult life living in Japan. So whenever I talk to a 20 year old from the US, I'm never sure if my lack of familiarity with contemporary pop culture that they know is because I'm old or if its because I have been physically distant from North American society for so long.

I'm a university professor who teaches mostly exchange students, so this is an almost daily conversation I have with myself. My pop culture references are only current to about the year 2000, which is actually before most members of the first year students were even born now.

Henry Rollins is still relevant. He is curating vinyl reissues for Sounds of Vinyl and recently published a book of his photography. I was listening to punk in the 70's. Heard the Pistols in 1976. I did not wear the 'uniform', but those at the shows did not care.

I'm not even old yet, i'm 26, but I am a manager at a country club and a lot of my employees are in the 16-23 age range, and I sometimes feel out of touch. I'm only 4 years out of college and sometimes these high school and college kids talk about stuff and i feel really dumb not knowing what they're talking about.

It doesn't surprise me when I'm unfamiliar with the music my students are listening to, though I do like a fair amount of recent music for a middle-aged guy, but I am still surprised on occasion at how few of the students are familiar with certain celebrities from the last few decades. We asked like half a dozen students in the building the other day, and none of them had any idea who Alanis Morisette was. These are university students. I realize she wasn't on the same tier of fame with Madonna and Marilyn Monroe, but I think if I'd asked the same thing 10 years ago all of them would have known who she was.

I messaged a friend this week that I couldn't believe Frau Blucher - AKA (Cloris Leachman) - had turned 93. He replied kids today have no idea who Frau Blucher is. Sad, but true. (For those here who don't know, google, or better yet, watch "Young Frankenstein.)

I think it's been a good 25 years since the kids got Frau Blucher references. Same goes for Lilly von Schtupp.

A friend of mine told me the other day that your memory is the second thing to go when you get old. I asked what the first was. His response, "I can't remember."

Don McLean's lyrics in his 1971 song "American Pie" said it best...."the Day the Music Died". Of course he was referring to the accident that ended the lives of Buddy Holly,
Ritchie Valens, and Jiles Perry "The Big Bopper" Richardson in 1959.

In my opinion, "the Day the Music Died" occurred in the mid-to-late 1980's. The music ended when Hall & Oates, Marvin Gaye, Donna Summer, "Blondie", Tina Turner, etc.
were no longer the pop music scene.

P.S. And I didn't google any of them. I'm a bit of a trivia nut.

While I don't really have the sort of encyclopedic memory some have, I have always liked stuff that's older. I was talking about music with one guy I almost ended up having a card shop with, and after a few minutes he said he had just realized I was too young to know the 60's bands I did, and the songs.
I told him that's what records are for

We got along pretty well, I would have gone into running the shop, but the guy who was there decided not to go back to teaching. Long term, it worked out well, I was almost certainly not ready back then.

'Tweren't a trivia quiz, Barry, but nice goin'. We were just adding to the list of "what hump?" / Frau Blucher / Lily von Schtupp references...

We once worked with an editor -- and this was fifteen, almost twenty years ago -- an editor who didn't recognize the names "Perry Mason"
and "Godzilla." We're paraphrasing clumsily here, but the great Leslie Fiedler said something to the effect of "pop culture is the only real culture."
