Taking Crazy Pills Moments

I don’t know if you know what I mean about “Crazy Pill Moments,”  but it’s those moments where everything seems so clear and logical to you, but the rest of the world see’s the same thing, but in the complete opposite way.  It comes from the movie Zoolander.

Here’s the quote from the movie from Will Ferrel’s character, Mugatu (awesome name btw):

SHUT UP! Enough already, Ballstein! Who cares about Derek Zoolander anyway? The man has only one look, for Christ’s sake! Blue Steel? Ferrari? Le Tigra? They’re the same face! Doesn’t anybody notice this? I feel like I’m taking crazy pills!

And for the more visual people here’s the youtube clip:

Anyway, I feel like I have these moments every so often especially when it comes to fads and trends.  Here are some of my most recent moments:

  • Miley Cyrus / Hannah Montana (I don’t get why she’s so popular, I’ve watched her show and listened to her songs)
  • The Jonas Brothers (I’m clueless here too)
  • That movie “Twilight”

Maybe it’s because I haven’t given these things enough time to understand them, but I tried and I don’t know if I want to “get them.”  The other “Crazy Pill” moment I don’t get, especially here in LA, is why for New Year’s Eve there is this whole concept of having to go out somewhere to celebrate New Year’s Eve.  And not only just going out to a bar, but going to a club and having to spend 50 dollars and up for a ticket to be part of the “festivities.”  Then when you go it’s just people drinking, dancing, and playing music just like they do any other night at the club.  However, just to make it “New Yearsy” they throw in a champagne toast, do a count down, and make people dress up less skanky than an average club night.  I just don’t get it.

Maybe it’s because my New Year’s Eve growing up typically were spent with my family…even more so in college since we would all have to leave campus during the holidays most of the students all went back to their families for the holidays.  There weren’t many swanky clubs like in Hollywood in Michigan…and it’s really cold too.  So New Year’s Eve was typically spent watching the Ball Drop on ABC courtesy of Dick Clark.  So yeah…I feel like I’m taking crazy pills.
