Were you introduced to a TV show or movie too late? Did you see something that was clearly only good to those who could watch it through nostalgia-colored glasses? Did timing just ruin pop culture for you?
Here’s where I confess that I don’t get the appeal of My So-Called Life. I saw it when I was in college and it was the combination of it being slightly dated, pretty white, and very teenaged that made me shrug my shoulders at the whole thing. Sorry Angela Chase, it’s not you, it’s definitely me.

Seinfeld. I have never found Seinfeld funny. I have friends who are obsessed with that show and can quote every word, but I just find it mean and awkward.
So, I don’t really get kaiju movies. I have a ton of friends who do, so I can be social about watching the latest Godzilla whatever. But I’d just as soon not. I feel kind of left out in my geeky circle on this one.
On another topic, I’m loosing my patience with a group I’m doing some graphic design for. I love them. They are wonderful people. But I really do not think I’m being unreasonable to ask that the proofread and edit their copy before it comes to me. Their process for editing a text document and reviewing it in the group is a lot easier than mine for editing the flyer I have designed for them only to have it come back to “there is a misspelling and we want to change the order of the paragraphs.” I’ll figure out how to tell them this tomorrow when I’m feeling less angry and mean about it.
