I'm a bit behind the times when it comes to pop culture. When I was in high school and college, I knew all the hottest songs and movies. Glee and the whole a Capella renaissance hit while I was still teaching in the US, but the movie Pitch Perfect came out in 2012. I'm just now finally watching it, as I write this post.
And I have to ask... is this movie for real? Are there universities in the US with four or five groups competing against each other? Do they gather in drained pools and have impromptu rumbles? Are there people so obsessed with a Capella singing that they make horrible puns like "a Ca-excuse me?" and "you're going to get pitch slapped" when they speak? Are intra-university competitions broadcast with color commentators? I get that the story is actually based on a non-fiction book, but... really? At least the movie is funny. It had some moments that made me laugh out loud.
I guess I'm getting old and out of touch with these younger kids. Before you know it, I'll be a grandpa.
So, baseball cards...
I used to have a top 10 wanted card list. I got rid of it when I redid my want list page, because it was just easier to leave the full lists up. Call me lazy.
