Further Out of Step.

Am I the only person in the world who dislikes Marilyn Monroe, Elvis Presley, the films of Walt Disney and Gone with the Wind? It isn’t only that I don’t for the life of me see why they’re regarded as being so iconic, I actually dislike them.  If I were trapped, alone and feeling cabin feverish, in a snowstorm in a cabin somewhere without a TV, a radio, any means of writing, anything to read, or any guitar to strum, but with a DVD player and a selection DVDs featuring the aforementioned, I’d stick with the cabin fever.

The first time I saw Marilyn Monroe in a movie was sort of jarring. I knew who she was but had never heard her voice. I asked my mother, "Why is she talking like a baby?" My mother said that way of speaking in women was considered attractive at the time. I came away thinking that everyone in the 1950s was an idiot.

You mean you were an opinionated madam even at the tender age of under twenty four? Nice style.
