I am so unhip that, while reading that link, I checked twice whether it was a foreign site mistranslated or something.

/WTH is a "recovering journalist". Is that a jokey joke?

Fashion articles are going to be full of local jargon. Maybe if we had a 'douchebag' tag we would have had some warning that it was full of acid-trip nonsense.

The dude is talking about local styles and apparently there is one called 'mod' but he never bothers to include a picture.

Really no reason to read an article like that. Try http://www.plosone.org/ for some articles with actual facts in them.

So now I'm dumber.

You're so unhip it's a wonder your bum doesn't fall off.

Since I'm terminally un-hip, and I know what it is, it's making me feel farking OLD, is what.

Go Google "mods and rockers"...I'll be mourning my lost youth with the first G&T of the day...

Izod polos with an alligator logo?  Dafuq?
"That's right-it's not a sweater-it's a farking jumper!"  Double dafuq?

Used to be a journalist, and now he volunteers for a living?  After reading that - I'm not surprised. 

Your blog sucks

Mod:

My jacket's gonna be cut slim and checked
Maybe a touch of seersucker with an open neck
I ride a G S scooter with my hair cut neat
I wear my wartime coat in the wind and sleet.

As somebody who lived through the 80s mod scene in Los Angeles, judging by the cars and buildings in his "1984 Mod scooters in Los Angeles" photo,  it is in fact a photo from England , in the 60s .......

Done in one. This is a PopMatters link, after all- their sole purpose seems to be to crush Pitchfork as the most pretentious, vapid, douchey site on the internet. Their writers are, without exception, smuger-than-thou hipsters who take trivial and inane pop culture subjects to be very serious business. At least they are an excellent source of Lulz.

So THATS what they called 'gay' in the '80s.

They monitor your posts, and delete your comments if you post a picture of your butt or something.

Author of TFA is probably too pussy to actually GET a scoot. Then OR now.

I bet he'd be riding one now, provided that it was easy to accessorize.

No wonder that guy couldn't cut it as a journalist, he can't even do the most basic research. The photo was by Terry Fincher in 1964 in Hastings. Even his correction of "probably Brighton" was idiotic.
