thinking about postmodernism (if my friends from Comp Lit saw ths, they'd scream!):

why is it that I feel so torn about feeling like I'm totally postmodern and yet not wanting to be. I mean -- I really do appreciate pop culture and the blending of culture that came as a result of postmodernism. And yet -- poetry is so elitist in some respects, and intellectually, I like a lot of ellitist art forms (opera, ballet, art movies etc...) but I also love schlock.

that's why it's so confusing.
