Kids of Today

posted by on December 25 at 13:03 PM

I’m visiting my brother and his family in Norfolk, VAa well-timed trip in regard to my current obsession with Clipse (I haven’t seen them around anywhere) and a welcome reconnection with my brother’s kids, AKA my niece and nephew.

Sarah just turned 16 and is obsessed with punk. (For her birthday, I gave her a signed copy of Courtney Love’s diaries, and she wept in appreciation.) If her idolization of Courtney Love isn’t scary enough, her celebrity dream date du jour is Pete Doherty. (“He’s beautiful!” she says while swooning; next up: crushes on open sores.)

Jake is 12 and loves skateboarding and the Clash. Five minutes ago, he said this about the movie Scarface: “He crams his face in a huge pile of coke, and most people who do that aren’t very happy.”

Kids these days. At least they haven’t mentioned Robotripping or rainbow parties, but the night is young…

When I heard about rainbow parties, my first thought was that the colors would all smear together.

According to the hilarious post #4 on the Rainbow Parties link, they don't even exist. KKKramer - gotta love that guy. You're right Gitai, it sounds like the colors would smear.

Rainbow party? Wow. Funny to see cough syrup in the news again too. I just had a conversation with a co-worker the other day that proved his experiences in the 70's as nearly identical as mine in the 80's with that bad-tasting, itchy, itchy red stuff. Jesus if we'd just had some joint to play with instead...
