I really do think pop culture is its own language. When you are in places like military school and rehab and are thrown in the shit with other lost souls, you end having to talk about something. You don’t want to talk about why you huffed gasoline when you ran out of pills or why you got arrested, so it’s easier to talk about TGIF, horror movies, a TV show, or a band you like. It’s a safe way to connect and at first it can seem shallow, but yet sharing these cultural middle brow ‘things’ can cause these bonds that in a weird way make people feel the same way when they are in church.
