Age related most likely, and lack of interest in certain things keep me stumped and wondering whenever I check my social media newsfeed. I could easily google but in most cases I won't because 99% of the viral trend stuff just looks and sounds stupid or uninteresting. Anyway, feel free to post about popular stuff you are clueless about. Here's mine:

The CW - no idea what this is.
reddit - I've been there once but it is so confusing and I have no desire to go there again.
"I'm pretty when I cry" Fictional Character - Facebook keeps annoying me with that page in my ads for months. I don't care how popular it is, it just sounds stupid.
snapchat
music after 2000s
Instagram - It's basically Facebook with hashtags?
"bae" and "fam" - Solved. I actually just found out this stands for "babe" and "family"  Lookingup

Modern video games or gaming systems.

Pretty much any music after the 90's.

Most tv shows.

I think it's amusing that out of disdain I used to pretend not to know who pop culture figures were, but I've long since passed into this state of honestly not knowing them anymore. I was looking through some EW's at a friend's house and I thought...I....don't know these famous people.

It was great.

DEATH be not proud, though some have called thee  
Mighty and dreadfull, for, thou art not so,  
For, those, whom thou think'st, thou dost overthrow,  
Die not, poore death, nor yet canst thou kill me.... 
   
Thou art slave to Fate, Chance, kings, and desperate men,
And dost with poyson, warre, and sicknesse dwell...

One short sleepe past, wee wake eternally,   
And death shall be no more; death thou shalt die.

Modern actors -- Every day, I log onto imdb.com and look at the five front-page birthday people. With each passing year, I recognize fewer and fewer people.

Smartphones -- I have a Trac-fone that can text, but that's about it. No internet, no apps, no bells and whistles. I know the names of some major smartphone apps, but danged if I understand the purpose (other than data mining for profit).

Sports -- Where I work, you pretty much see wall-to-wall nods to various teams from all types of "Murican sports (baseball, American football, and basketball). I recognize a few, but what little interest I had in sports faded away with Joe Namath and Roman Gabriel (who had a great bit part in "The Chiorboys").

Music and films after the early 90's -- I recognize the names of certain singers and film titles (since modern culture won't allow you to avoid this junk completely), but I have mostly zero knowledge of beyond that. Once in a while, I stumble across something that I like, but rarely. Hell, I just got around to watching "Burn After Reading", and I LOVE Coen Brothers' movies.

TV -- I haven't had cable in at least 10 years. Other than things I can't avoid, I am clueless about 97% of what's popular. I do find a few current series to be interesting, but get sick and tired of the soap opera nature of most of these shows. Game of Thrones and The Walking Dead are prime examples. I hope someone puts a bullet in Rick and Carl's freaking heads, and the series is cancelled. GoT will hopefully end in a couple of years, based on what the producers are saying.

Current politics -- Don't know, don't care. Still think presidents should stay in office 6 years, then taken out and shot after the new president is selected from the phone book. Same with Congresspeople, except they only get 5 years to rule.

Current topical humor -- Since I don't watch news or TV or cable, I am constantly either mystified by specific cultural humor, or forced to look it up if it sticks in my craw. Yes, people DO look at me as if I just crawled out from underneath a rock sometimes. People who know me just leave me out of a lot of conversations so they don't have to explain the mythology behind the latest cultural soundbite.

I'm with you on the humor. This week friends on facebook posted gifs of a cactus without explanation but everyone knew what it was about - except for me.

Tv shows - i dont watch tv, so i dont know anything about the latest crap or any of the crazy antics that reality stars are up to, but  I can talk about saturday morning cartoons and macgyver all day!

Modern music - i love music. Im constantly sifting through old music and i always find some jem that i never heard.  Ill flip through stations when im driving amd i usually end up listening to talk radio. Its very very rare that i hear something new that i like. Music may actually be worse than tv.

Football - boring. A bunch of men playing grab-ass.

Social media - i have absolutely no interest in it, something seems evil about it. ( this place is nice though)

Stock market/economics - dont know dont care. The only thing i know is that i dont make a lot of money and i pay too much tax.

Modern actors and actresses - who has time to keep up with the newest 20 something with a perfect face. Theyll be forgotten within a year anyway.

Eskimo women - someday....

TV - Haven't watched in a long, long time.

Famous people - I honestly have no idea.

Sports - To give you an idea how little I've ever cared about sports: It wasn't until about fifth grade when I learned that football wasn't just something made up for movies.  When I found out people actually did that in real life, I was like, "Why?"  I've still never figured it out.

Fashion - I wear a shirt, and pants, and shoes.  Somehow, the combination of those is important ... I guess?

Star Wars--haven't seen one.
Star Trek--it's got Bill Shatner and that's all I know.
Most music, pre-mid'80s.
