being the youngest person in the office means people are constantly talking about movies, tv shows and musicians/songs that took place around the time I was born. couple that with the fact that I’m pretty culturally-unaware and the result is people always exclaiming over me not having heard of [fill in the blank].
so here are some things I learned this past week:
1. george michael. and not the one from arrested development, whom I do happen to know. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=diYAc7gB-0A
2. lionel richie. nicole richie’s dad. I didn’t know this, and now it makes a lot more sense who the hell nicole richie is. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QiLziusKW4s
4. doogie howser. I learned of this a few weeks ago, but I’m still including it here. neil patrick harris looks EXACTLY the same as a child! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Doogie_Howser,_M.D.
5. adventures of the gummi bears. I think I might just barely remember this from my own childhood, but if so I’d since completely forgotten. and now I have the theme song stuck in my head. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=loUNoy0Qub0
more to come in the future!
