In a recent conversation a Seinfeldism was used and had to be explained to me. You see, I never watched it. I never watched The Cosby Show, and have never watched the Simpsons, no Frazier either. Part of the reason is that I worked evening from 1984 to 1991 and well they didn't let me watch tv at work... well except news and sports (I worked at a newspaper)
People are usually also shocked by the movies I have NOT seen. Just to name a few...
- The wizard of oz
- Rocky (any of them) Frankly I have never seen any movie with Sylvester Stallone
- Alien (any of them)
- Dirty Harry (any of them)
- Jurassic Park
- I finally did watch Die Hard II about two years ago. But that's another blog. I didn't want to, I just didn't have a choice.
- Titanic (The boat sinks you know)
- Close Encounters
- Godfather (again, any of them)
Does anyone see a theme? I'm not a fan of shooting and chasing, nor a fan of large animals or aliens eating... taking over... or busting out of humans.
I have had friends look at me like I am from some other planet. And I do love movies. I'm a huge fan of happy endings though. And without having seen a single one of these movies I think I could tell the basic story from beginning to end on most of them. I'm not real sure how I came to this information. Osmosis I suppose. Hearing people talk. Trailers, commercials, flipping past on the tube.
When I was little I wanted to play outside, not watch TV. And while I do have some shows that I'm completely hooked on... I'm still not a huge fan of television in general. I was 36 when I got cable TV for the first time. No I do not live in that place in Egypt, it was available.
Have you missed any of these movies, an entire series that is often referred to? or am I all alone?
