>>>prepare for fragmented blabbering

 

so i have this theory that the decade that we're living in is gonna be (if it's not already, and it probably is) like some kindof warped updated replay of 1980's america. LAUGH IF YOU WANT. but it's very upsetting. aside from the no-brainer superficial stuff like the HUGE revival of 80s music and fashion, there are lots of reasons i feel the way i do. even living in suburbia in the deep south, i see it everywhere.

 

Desert Storm part II times a thousand is one example. go watch the video for "rock the casbah" by the clash and it's totally 100% relevant today. and i just said "totally." and that was not planned. FUCK!!

 

we live in a moral vacuum.

common, everyday conversation topics among my peers:

you look good. he got fat. she lost weight. it's the drugs. got any coke? no. you're tan. she looks better now. *&^&* just totalled his 2005 vette. it's ok, now he's getting a bmw. )(*^& is a full blown addict now. shit. that's awful. who cares. *&^) flunked out. so did i. oh really, so did **&&*&*. i haven't been to a class in a month. cool. i'm fucked. are you even enrolled? i dunno. i have 2 stalkers. that's crummy. yeah. cool outfit. thanks. i like your shoes. let's get a gram. ok. no lets get an 8ball. cool. let's not call *&^(*&^ though. hes slow. no he's in rehab. wow. intervention? yeah. what high school did you go to? what does your dad do? who are your parents?

 

decadence is top priority. even my family, who i ALWAYS, ALWAYS thought was immune to this, is now obsessed with keeping up with the joneses. we just moved into a big prefab house in some dumb subdivision in the middle of nowhere. "we needed a change." a new house will fix things. we are revamping it. "we're making it a real showpiece."

 

my neighbor across the street is my brother's shrink. his son drives a lexus and is 16. everybody sees a shrink. everybody has a "disorder" that needs "treatment." my brother's on lithium. who the fuck is on lithium. he tried to kill my dad. sorta. cool. im getting a gram tonight. cool outfit. whats the story. your facial features are very statuesque.

 

i'm not finished yet.....

 

 

That read just like a paragraph from Less Than Zero or any other book by Brett Easton Ellis, so i'm inclined to believe you.

This thread confuses me and I don't care about any of you enough to try to disect personalities and idocyncracies.

 

Yes, being superficial sucks but like Joker said it's the least of the planet's problems so maybe we should be looking a little closer if we want to figure out where we went wrong and how to begin to undo the damage.

 

Then again, I'm one to say it's too late for reform (and has been since the introduction of the 'modern man', well before the 80's; try the 50's) so fuck it, induldge, have fun, glue locks, break stuff and go to jail if you're really disgusted by society at large. Mountains, the forest, death, the back of an 89 Escort parked in the parking lot of a beatnik convent...

 

There are simple solutions to this, it just depends on your conviction.

 

 

Blame the media for giving people what they want. I'm tired of restating the obvious.

This thread is confusing and i think that is the main problem with what is going on. This isnt the 80s that is coming back, its some weird mutant version of the 80's. I have noticed a few things within the past few years.

 

trendy Lesbians- girls who claim to be bisexual but would never go farther than grabbing clothed boobs or kissing another girl if they were drunk.

 

why is everyone a skateboarder now?

 

Now more than ever i have noticed that people feel like they need to be able to relate to somethin, instead of just striving to be a well balanced person that seeks out who they really are.

 

I was in the mall earlier today. I noticed that about 8 out of 10 kids had the same haircut and it was the same color and they were wearing the same jeans. They looked like quintuplets. It was more creepy than it was cute.

 

What ever. I really need to collect more data to come up with a better formulated statement than this rambling mess. Take it for what you want though. I guess the message is "start doing what you want and not what TV wants you to do."
