I should know better – all day meetings with business dinner after are not conducive to getting a post written. So it’s almost 9 p.m. when I get home, and I’ve worn vintage Diorissimo parfum all day, which was lovely, but felt like a weird choice for fall, but I don’t care, and have no perfume things to write about.
But pop culture has snagged me on a couple of things – the Hunger Games books and the Vampire Diaries on teevee. both geared for young adults, but sometimes the most interesting, suck-you-in stuff is in that age range.
I don’t need to watch any more vampire stuff. I have the semi-porn True Blood, and that’s enough. But I was bored and feeling a little puny one weekend and downloaded two episodes of Vampire Diaries from Amazon on Demand, then got the rest of the first season and all of the second that’s been released and watched it in a couple of days. You might question whether I’m a little compulsive, and that’s a fair question. It’s really quite good. the guy that plays the bad vampire brother makes the show interesting and witty and fun. Without him, it would be Twilight Lite. Really fun, campy, ignore the love story.
Hunger Games, I think everyone in America under the age of 20 have read these books and most of the adults with kids that age. With my kids in their 20s now, I just missed them. Compelling read, no smut, dark themes, but an author who has the gift of the hook. By the end of the third chapter of the first of three books, I’ve been engrossed.
So what bit or bits of pop culture have sucked you in, or are you impervious to modern music, television, books?
