Adventures of Out-of-Touch Man

celebs [The following takes place in our family-van on the way home from buying some cookies.  This is an actual conversation between two 39 year olds.]

[Song playing the the background, “Big Girls Dont Cry” by Fergie]

Craig: “This a pretty good song.  I like the beat.  Any idea who is singing?”

Holly: “It’s Fergie”

Craig: “The princess!?”

Holly: “No the girl from the Black-Eyed Peas.”

Craig: “I though that was some other girl…something”

Holly: “Do you mean Lady Ga-Ga”

Craig: “Ya, that’s the one.”

Holly: “I don't know if Lady Ga Ga is a lady, She might be a man”

Craig:  [stunned silence] “I don't know if I’ve ever see he/she.  I’ve heard the name a lot.  [Break in the conversation as we drive] So this is what it’s like to be out of touch? Speaking of out-of touch.  You have heard of Jay-Z, right?  Do you have any idea what he does?  Is he a singer?”

Holly: “I think so, he was also on CSI”

Craig: “No, you’re thinking of Sean Combs”

Holly: “No That’s Iced-T (or is it ice-tee?)”

Craig: “I definitely know Combs in not iced-T.  I think Combs is P-duddy", or diddy.  They are the same person.”

[upon arriving home, Holly googles Jay-z]

Jay_Z Holly: “That’s Jay-z, he looks old.”

Craig: “I thought Jay-z was someone new…He’s just an old guy…”  (that’s him on the right)

Holly: “Alright, let’s get the kids to bed”


At the time of this writing we still don't know if Lady Ga-Ga is a man or woman.

UPDATE: I came across a picture of Lady gaga…she is a woman.  Just so there is no confusion.

So much for being cool….Read my “History of Being Cool”

  1. Great post. I think it is great that you are ignorant of modern pop culture. Of course, I hear all day about the latest and greatest rappers in the industry. My students are saturated in the rap/hip-hop culture. I long for that type of ignorance.
