Sport. Got stuck at one of 2 tables people sat at from my course on Monday night and the rest of the table proceeded to talk about hurling.
I sat there thinking it was rude to leave, for several minutes, then got up and moved to other table and instantly found conversation interesting.

Does mean I'm less fit than I should be probably though. Used to dance quite frequently until I moved too far out of town to get home easily from wahtever clubs

I think I have a thing in my brain that just tunes out sport talk the moment it happens. If sport comes up in conversation or on telly all I hear is "blahblahblahblah" MAybe if I didn't have this handy cerebral device I might learn something, but sadly it's there to stay.

I always thought the point of this thread is "This is something I simply am not devoting mental energy to, without implicit judgement" and less "fuck this stupid stuff that people love and the people that love it"?

yeah this is exactly where i was coming from, e.g. i watched series 1 of stranger things, it was fine, people lost their shit, they want everyone to really really love it, i just don't care.

i didn't care about twin peaks at all. didn't watch. didn't read about it. despite being a fan of the original show and lynch. i am just not a reunion fan.

Re art world, don't want it to burn, not angry—I just don't care. Yes it's corrupt, that's not what bothers me. In fact, I'm much more concerned with corruption in banking, where I care a lot.

I think I just realized a couple years ago, while going through the motions at a friend's opening, that I've never felt any emotion toward a painting at all, not even technical admiration.

Guess I've just lost the energy to fake it.

I care a lot up to about Monet. After that it gets rough. I have no idea where to find good contemporary painting. It feels like paintings are hardly needed nowadays.

Οὖτις, Friday, 27 October 2017 21:25 (three weeks ago) Permalink

yeah scott the new season of twin peaks is anything but a 'reunion' (at least as that term is most commonly used i.e. more of the same). you'd probably dig it if you really dislike reunion/nostalgia wankfests, and especially if you're a fan of later Lynch.

flappy bird, Friday, 27 October 2017 21:28 (three weeks ago) Permalink

also yeah i liked Stranger Things last year & will probably watch the new one but the over the top adulation was depressing... how long are we going to have to live thru 80s nostalgia? I Love the 80s aired 15 years ago ffs

i will no doubt watch twin peaks. if its on hulu or netflix. i just didn't care about it before, during, and after like all the peakheads.

scott seward, Friday, 27 October 2017 21:51 (three weeks ago) Permalink

i do think david lynch is the coolest. after all these years. i can't think of many american filmmakers i even care about any more. which fits on this thread too!

Needed?

Art world = the big money big gallery art world?

There's so much great art today, it's just scattered all over the place and can be challenging to find. I rarely go to art galleries because I just don't trust them to have anyone interesting. But I find a lot of new artists who are really refreshing, perhaps partly because they're not part of some bigger scene.
I haven't been keeping up very well but it always makes me feel good when I do. As a fantasy fan, it's always more exciting than anything in film or comics.

One thing I think is truly in the spirit of this thread: people's medical problems, their adventures in finding doctors, their opinions of different hospitals, what procedures they had done, etc. Maybe this changes as you get older? I cannot fucking stand getting trapped into one of these conversations. To me doctors are auto mechanics, I want them to fix the problem so I can be on my way. I'm not going to discuss new brake pads in detail with my friends.

I don't care about most of the things that I ostensibly care about but since I almost never get to bond with others, including close ones, over the things that matter to me the most, I basically care because I need contact.

I probably could have worded it better, what I meant was I don't really care to read a thread on ILX where men talk about masturbating in front of women - their motivations, their experiences etc.- then vote on it.
