Cultural Disconnect

Forget about social media shorthand (lol, bbl, idk), let's talk about how today's youth are clueless about the movie "Meatballs," or that The Titanic actually sank.
"People just coming of age now have a different group to work with," Lamb said. "There's something unsettling about realizing that your references are dated."
I wouldn't expect many people on Twitter to know who Casey Kasem is, or Bill Murray for that matter.  Bill is still appearing in movies but his work is not exactly capturing young people's imaginations.  Nevertheless, if somebody is proud to Tweet that he/she doesn't know who Rodney King is, they probably don't know who the current vice president is.

Happy first day of summer.
