How to always catch pop culture references

My friends love different things connected with pop culture and they always talk about things that have happened recently. And as I am not that interacted with it I sometimes fall out from the conversation. So guy I have few questions for you) Are you friends always throwing around TV show catch phrases or famous movie lines? Do the shows you watch throw in a joke about another show or movie or celebrity? Do you always fail to understand what is being talked about? If yes - tell us what do you do to stay in touch with your friends) That would be funny)

Hello! I don't understand how you keep in touch with your friends, if you have nothing in common with them. Perhaps there are different topics for conversation for you, except TV news, celebrities, and other unneeded stuff. I am not interested in it at all, that's why I can't help you in this problem.

Man,in order for you to stay on the same wave with your friends-watch some TV or movies,read some net. :cheer: What,you're not into that at all? :) Well,then don't be afraid to admit it-hey,guys,whatever you're talking about,I dont' know what's that,but let me know,ok? :) Sounds funny?Well,man,either this,or watch all of that,they talk about (or rad about it somewhere at least to know something at all),or change your friends. :cheer: What else can be done?Find somebody who just like you don't give a f*ck about all that TV and movie crap-maybe,somebody into fishing or something. :cheer:

There many things that you can do to help yourself. Find a list of famous movies or TV shows. While a "Goodfellas" line or joke may be thrown around in other media, it's highly unlikely that something as trivial as "Pretty Little Liars" will be referenced anywhere else. A good list would be Oscar winners, IMDB's top 250, or a "most referenced movies in pop culture" list. Or try to read gossip or celebrity news sites. You don't have to do enough so that you turn into a pop culture dud like Kelly Kapoor but just enough so that even though everyone else knows about the Kardashians, you know some trivia and fun facts about them. Then you will have somoething to talk about.

I would advice you not to worry about that much. Remember very little pop culture is global. What's popular in Japan may never see the light of day in the UK. Indian pop culture has many differences to US pop culture and some countries might just be jumping onto a band wagon when the rest of the world has got off. If you watch a diverse range of TV shows, Movies and internet videos, there is a good chance there will be pop culture references you will never catch because you're not part of that culture, and you shouldn't worry about it. Be honest with your friends

I totally share you personal opinion on it..! all these popular television shows are just an incredible opportunity to get the understanding of how not pleasant it is to feel yourself being put aside from the main theme here...and in the most interesting cases, I would be also highly interested in the possibility to make it all work as it has to be... therefore, I am highly interested in the situation to talk about and when the moment of the misunderstanding comes, you fail to laugh, simply because you do not get the joke they are making..!!! I am sure that if we want to make it work better, we will be obliged to read and watch every silly gossip and news....that is impossible!

I can not believe that you are into the current theme.. it is really useless thing to be really worried about, my dear friend and in terms of saving the personal time, giving the preference to the wise and intelligent actions, rather than sitting on the sofa in the evening and watching silly jokes some else is doing... it is nonsense! I am sorry, did not want to offend anyone here, but that is the reality and you can not do anything else about it.. so you have to pay the thorough attention to everything you are doing... Anyway, answering the question you have asked, i will tell you this - you can watch the TV all the time , only then you will stay in the pop culture jokes...

Ohh it was easy for me only when I was a careless student who did not pay a lot of the attention to details and studying by the way too (ashamed awfully ashamed!)... but, with the time I get the offer and job which was opening the greatest opportunities for me. So that was actually the biggest dream and of course, I was highly interested in the necessity of having the more or less free time to catch up in the latest news from the celebrities world, because as you know, the vast majority of jokes that have been made on various TV shows are about the celebrities latest scandalous gossips... so, you can never know what you are missing this time!

Good night everybody. I was lucky with my friends. Since I do sports, fights without rules, then many of my friends are athletes. And it's easy for us to find common themes, and they are about sport or general topics. But just such friends as you still need to look, I think. They are more like a female team that gathers to discuss gossip and rumors about the stars of show business and pop culture, for example))) And you still change the subject of the conversation and be confident in yourself, they will then support you!
