I spent 90 minutes on the Elliptical Trainer. Back and forth swinging the arms and dying of boredom. At some point, I turned on the TV and found some documentary about Britney Spears. I tried like madd to get into her life story, her beauty, music, etc. NO GO. Totally flat. In between her songs and video shoots she kept talking about her life and how hard it has been and how she gets upset when people call her short--------whoa.
I am sorry if she represents the 20something generation as a music icon, that's no good. In my day there was the Material Girl, vintage Michael Jackson, LL Cool J. (before he was on some tv show), the Beasty Boys, Red Hot Chili Peppers, the Cure, Natalie Merchant, the Clash and so on.
Needless to say, the Eliptical is a strange device. I am not sure if it does much. People sign up for it at the gym and go back and forth with their arms and seem to dig it.
