Remy Ma/Nicki Minaj Feud. One Saturday my Facebook Newsfeed was blowing up with comments and memes about this feud. Apparently this goes back to 2007 and flamed up over the past week.

The football has special teams that do something specific to make one of their plays to go some yards to make a down, hopefully first down?

I don't know who either of these people are. Nicki Minaj is a reality TV star or something, I think?

Adidas Pureboost running shoes

All my friends from work have them. Has good reviews on amazon.

But what I don't get- the part of the shoe that looks like styrofoam. Is it supposed to look like that????? On purpose?

EDM. Apparently it's the biggest thing in music. All sounds like noisy sirens and pounding bass to me.

One of the most mystifying musical fads ever. I know I sound like an old fuck but the idea of spending hundreds of dollars to go to a stadium to see a light show with some guy programming what sounds like anonymous random beats for 4 or 5 hours is truly an experience I cannot fathom.

According to Forbes, Calvin Harris made more money in 2016 ($66M) than Beyonce did ($54M). How the hell does something like that even happen?
I've never seen a Calvin Harris album in the stores and am not even sure if they exist.

I couldn't tell you one bleep or bloop of his music. Meanwhile incredibly gifted musicians are playing coffee houses and dive bars for $20 buck a night.

(Yes I know there is no justice in the music world but it's fun to gripe about it)

Re: Popular stuff you have no clue about.

Modern films (after 2000 or so)
The Oscars / Grammys and the business of their political front masquerading as talent
Sports -- not really clueless, but I couldn't care less about this "opiate for the masses"
Social media in the general sense and their 1000s of constantly mutating and spinoff sites.
Millenials and all they stand for.

Most of todays mainstream music including rap/hip-hop. I just don't get it.

reddit
'Honest Trailers'
TV Shows
'Ermahgerd' - It's not popular anymore but when it was I had no clue what this was about. I thought maybe it had to do with pirate talk.
