Men and women alike were raised on boy meets girl and girl meets boy and it all works out in the end moviews.

My friend always lectures me, "Pixie, life is NOT a teen movie."

What a load of crap.

Theory doesn't hold water, Seth Rogen films only make you want to kill Seth Rogen.

I see all this potential, and I see squandering. God damn it, an entire generation pumping gas, waiting tables; slaves with white collars. Advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy shiat we don't need. We're the middle children of history, man. No purpose or place. We have no Great War. No Great Depression. Our Great War's a spiritual war... our Great Depression is our lives. We've all been raised on television to believe that one day we'd all be millionaires, and movie gods, and rock stars. But we won't. And we're slowly learning that fact. And we're very, very pissed off.

That was the previous generation. This generation doesn't even bother to go out and get a meaningless job.

Yeah, I guess "Fight Club" is more Generation X nihilism and existential angst than millennials.

In 1892 an anarchist bomb killed 8 in a Paris Police Station.    The Dalton Gang was shot trying to rob a bank in Coffeyville Kansas.    Lizzie Borden killed her mother and father with an axe.   The Homestead Strike leaves 10 men killed.   The Johnson County War breaks out between farmers and ranchers in Wyoming.

All because Sir Arthur Conan Doyle published The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes that year.

The kid in Santa Barbara sounded like he was just a moron. How come he wasn't arrested when he threw a hot liquid at someone? Isn't that frowned upon? it's not the fault of movies or video games. It's parents not preparing their crotch fruit that you won't get the dream girl, dream job, and life sucks sometimes.

As much as I love Fight Club, that's not relevant anymore.

It's a 1999 movie based on a 1996 book. We're in 2014 and we've had a Great War (War on Terror) that plunged the country into a Great Depression (Subprime mortgage banking crisis + Automakers crash).

That's not to say the current generation is any better. It's a bunch of slack jawed teens with hashtags and selfies and Instagrams and tumblrs.

Gee I saw those movies, and I didn't round up some guns (or use the ones I own which would be ill-suited for a mass killing) and go off killing folks, despite a dry spell.

But I'm not guanopsychotic.

Sure, background checks and waiting periods left and right, as a gun owner I'm cool with that. But can we ALSO do something about crazy people?
 
2014-05-27 03:08:53 PM  
No.  No.  NO.

Who's really to blame for the murders committed by the homicidal maniac?  THE HOMICIDAL MANIAC.

September 11, 2001, 8 A.M.: Stores begin selling "Silver Side Up," the album that would make Nickelback famous.

Time to get serious, folks. Someday, we'll have to deal with another tragedy like this. No telling how many young lives it will take or how little sense it will make, but in the wake of it, it will not bring any significant changes to homeland security or society at large. Of course, the media will be there to pick their scapegoats and decry how they lead to the downfall of society. They will be rightfully ignored until some pundit, be it overzealous political staffer, overconfident blogger, or fringe wing talking head will present a completely stupid and uncalled for reason for this calamity. It would not be racist or sexist, or even based on religion, but it would be so absurdly stupid that it will make everyone stop what they are doing and just stare at the guilty party, slack-jawed and dazed. The backlash will be such that the guilty party would be snatched up before they are given the chance to clarify and held before the angry masses while accusing fingers point up and say "See this piece of filth? THIS is our real problem! THIS is our true villian!" All the friends of this Idiot and those of his ilk will be yanked forward as well, subjected to ridicule and never allowed to make a meaningful contribution to society, forever marked as the Ones Who Went Too Far.

But that would just be silly, wouldn't it?

But who would care what she thinks?! SHE'S A WOMAN.

Her column would read like this:

My Review of This Dumb Girly Movie I Dragged My Husband To This Weekend
By Girly McGirlerson...er...dottir
Blah blah blah feelings emotions blah blah oh he's so cute blah blah their costumes were incredible blah blah blah endless love blah blah blah I wish there were more scenes where they just stood around and talked about their feelings for each other blah blah blah no gun fights or explosions, so I give the movie five stars.

Why?  The character he was playing is the imaginary superman of the narrator's sleep deprived mind.  The ubermale that he invented to drag himself out of his meaningless existence . It makes perfect sense that he is good looking and does the things others dream - and lectures others to help them out of the quagmire.

The actual words were spoken by the narrator - a hapless, weak, lost man trying to claw his way out of his beige life.

In defense of my admittedly annoying generation, we've been handed a plate of sh*t dressed with a poop reduction and served with a side of asshole as our "future". We're probably going to be the final generation that, at least in western/modern societies, which will live anything close to the standard of wealth and comfort set during the post-WWII economic rise thanks to a variety of issues, especially the environment.

So, taking 100s of selfies a day and pretending to be an activist and all-star humanist by retweeting trending hashtags is a coping mechanism.
