Oops. I accidentally made a post about rainbow colored things.

A common theme here on this blog is how out of touch I am with technology. I am one of the very, very, very few people in the entire world who does not have a Smart phone. I also do not keep up with the news, have a TV or listen to music as much as everyone else does.

Not surprisingly, when there’s a fad or cultural phenomenon, I often don’t participate. There are some that I like. Harlem Shake videos are cute. 13 Reasons Why is a good show. Podcasts are a constant necessity for me to live and function as a normal human being. However, there are just some things that I don’t understand, like this music video.

KONY2012

OK, so I didn’t even know what this was until, well, five seconds ago. I remember it was plastered all over YouTube by annoying people who barely knew what they were doing. When I saw a sea of “KONY2012” flooding YouTube, I honestly thought, “Wow, I don’t know who this KONY person is, but they must be a good rapper for all of these kids to be obsessed with him.” Yeah, I know. I can feel you eating a grilled cheese sandwich and silently laughing at me while sipping your ginger ale.

Pokémon Go

As I do not have a Smart phone, so I can’t use aps nor have I substituted texting for basic human interaction. So naturally, when almost everyone in the entire world was obsessed with catching Pokémon, I was just being my usual self and silently judging everyone while I stared at blank space doing nothing and waiting for the fad to pass. A second later, everyone just stopped playing. I guess they wanted to go back to texting full time.

The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

I know this was for a wonderful cause, but I personally did not see the entertainment or educational value of throwing ice water all over your body. It was supposed to create awareness and raise money from charity. I would rather do it the old fashioned way and just read a pamphlet and send a check. If I wanted to do something fun, I would dive into a pool of chocolate pudding.

I don’t know why this video exists, but I’m glad it does.

  1. I cannot believe that is the official video for that song, hahaha. Wow. An official music video that’s just Snapchat filters. People are cray.

  2. Didn’t know anything about that music video myself! As for Pokemon, I briefly played. XD And I do remember that ice bucket challenge! Strange things we do!

  3. Trust me I don’t feel connected with these trends too. the only thing I do regularly, is TV Shows. I want to watch everything that it is out there and it’s worth watching. I watched 13 reasons why last week and I liked it.

    I tried pokemon go, and I found it very stupid. I prefer watching the nature and the city when I go for a walk. And the ice bucket challenge – many people poured ice all over their body but haven’t donated a dime. If you support a cause, just write a check and try to raise awarness through other methods.

    A smartphone and the internet can be very useful and they can make your life easier, but there’s a limit to everything.

  4. I never stopped playing. Only hardcore Pokemon fans still play not only the newest game like Sun and Moon but Pokemon Go since they decided to release Gen 2 and update all the gyms and how everything functions. I hate the idea that things have to be fades in order for someone to enjoy something. I am nearly at level 22 😀

    And rainbows are awesome. Plus, I am not surprised that you don’t have a smart phone. I remember when they first came out and remember the buzz and now it’s stronger than ever. Everything in technology has its limits and that’s true.
