I wanna try to ignore all pop culture for the next year

July 18, 2010

I think I’m a little too into celebrity/pop culture. I can’t go a week with out googling news of Scarlett Johansson. I think i know too much crap(ie. who Justin Bieber is, what “Jersey Shore”is. etc.) that is just pointless knowledge. Therefore, I think ill give up pop culture from now until the this day(July. 18) next year. I hope by this time next year ill be completely pop culture ignorant. I will make some exceptions, I still can’t give up “Glee” or “House”, but I will try hard to avoid pop culture news as much as possible. I will outline my plan as follows. For the next year I will do the following:

1.I will not read any entertainment magazines like: People, Rolling Stone, etc…
2.I will not read any celebrity interviews published after August 1 with anybody except for: Cory Monteith and Lea Michele.
3.I will not read, listen or watch any movie reviews done after today.
4.I will only watch “Infomania” once in 2009, and one more time in 2010; I will avoid the first part which usually deals with news.
5.I will press mute when i see celebrity news on T.V. and walk away.
6.My only authorized source of pop culture news will be twitter, gleeforum.com, the Gleeful podcast and facebook.
6a.I will not add any new celebrities to follow on facebook or twitter.
7.I will skip all interviews Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert have with singers and actors and actresses.
8.I will not watch any movies released after today.
9.I will not watch any television shows except for “Glee”, “House”, “The Colbert Report”, “The Daily Show”, “Futurama”, and anything Lea Michele and Cory Monteith guest star on.
10.I will unsubscribe from the Gleeful podcast until the show starts again but I will allow myself to listen to two episodes before the season 2 premiere.
11.I will allow myself to watch this years Teen Choice Awards and the Emmys.
12.I will not listen to any music released after today(except for the music from Glee of course).

I think that should be about it… i’ll add anymore that I can think of later. Anyways I get this starts now!

  1. Good luck! It’s an impossible feat because everyone you know and converse with will be talking about pop culture. The only way is to hermit yourself. Plus, pop culture is way too much fun! Why give it up?

      Thankfully, my friends don’t watch too much T.V. so it shouldn’t be too hard. Also, I’m giving it up because it’s too fun(I”m too into it)


  2. I feel the same way sometimes. I am actually supre excited for Lindsey Lohan to actually go to jail so i don’t have to hear about her skanky ass anymore. Good luck!
