I always feel defensive when someone acts stunned when I reveal that I haven’t seen a particular movie, TV show, read a certain book, or am not familiar with their favorite musical artist.  So what?  Does it make me less human?  You’d think so, based on their reaction.  So I missed out on some TV show, does that mean that my experience of this this thing called “life” is diminished?
I mean, really?
We’re all on separate journeys here.  Mine may or may not include the same programming as yours.  Yours may or may not include the same programming as mine.  I have an unknown amount of minutes to live and rather or not I choose to use some of them to watch, read, and/or listen to something that you suggest is purely my prerogative. 
Let’s ponder that shall we. 
In the meantime, I will take your well-meaning suggestions and filter them.
