Lowest Common Denominator

“The phrase is used to describe the most basic, least sophisticated level of taste, sensibility, or opinion among a group of people. This is most often used in criticism of art, products or media thought to be aiming itself at such a group, the implied complaint usually being that the subject has been simplified to appeal to a wider audience (containing only factors popular or at least acceptable to everybody).”

That is the only explanation I can give to why there is so much crap on television, the radio, the news outlets.  When movies like Twilight rake in millions, where reality TV is the norm on television and where some major news outlets read like the National Inquirer.

I don’t care about American Idol, The Housewives of Some Random City, The Jersey Shore, etc.  These shows are stupid.  I am not interested in reading about Lindsey Lohan on CNN, or some other random “star” getting drunk, doing drugs, who they married, etc.

There is a serious dumbing down of Americans.  I think culture is dead.  I don’t think I am very sophisticated, but I am definitely not in the lowest common denominator category.

Welcome to the New Blog

It has been 3.5 months since we moved to the “country”.  It has been 17 years since I moved from outside NYC to Georgia.  If you asked me 17 years ago if I would ever leave NY, the answer would have been “Hell No”.  Extraordinary circumstances and a split-second decision compelled me to move South.  Do I regret it?  No.  Do I miss NY?  Definitely!

Here I will chronicle my life in the South, the “country”, and so on.  So welcome aboard if you are reading this.
