Sort of lost interest in pop culture after 2003 or so. My co-workers discuss the newest superhero movie and I'm looking for a new band or movie from the 80s to discover. The era seems more genuine. Today's culture is throwaway; lots of CGI, pop music, but little substance. YMMV.

    I absolutely agree, although my interest pretty much died in the mid-90s. Talking about music as an example, it was reported a few days ago that researchers found that music from the 60s and 70s were more familiar to young people today than the crap they're fed by the industry. I have little doubt that a lot of that is due to the variety of music that was in the charts back then. Today, there's very little difference between acts.

    In today's "Music", as soon as I hear auto-tune, my brain shuts down...It's hard to focus on the music aspect of it with ridiculous vocals being the norm...And yes I get the irony of that statement given the bands I've been in...Even more funny since as kid I loved "Robot voices" like in Funky Town or Electric Avenue...
