What's Out, What's In: A Clueless Guy's Guide to Pop Culture
Anyone who's read this blog knows I'm old and frighteningly out of touch with "what the kids like." Then why am I bothering to tell you what's in and what's out? Gotta write about something.

Jobs
Out: Social worker
In: War profiteer
Dick "Gordon Gecko" Cheney says "The point is, ladies and gentleman, that bloodshed, for lack of a better word, is good. Bloodshed is right, bloodshed works. Bloodshed clarifies, cuts through, and captures the essence of the evolutionary spirit."

Music
Out: Shameless pilfering of Led Zeppelin riffs.
In: Shameless pilfering of World Music beats.
I'm looking at you, Vampire Weekend.

Fashion
Out: Dress for success.
In: Dress to impress the barista at an independent coffee shop.
I like to play a little game called Homeless or Hipster? when I'm out and about. Try it sometime.

Food
Out: Comfort food.
In: Raw vegan dishes that, through the use of sterilized tongs, have never been touched by human hands.
Look for The McBeet at your favorite fast food establishment.

Sex
Out: Recreational lesbianism.
In: Occupational dry humping.
Don't blame the maintenance man for giving you that impromptu lap dance. He's just a trend setter.

TV
Out: Talent shows.
In: Shows in which people are brought before a live audience, stripped, and have their genitals mocked by porn stars.
Jenna Jameson: "Girl, you call that a pussy? It looks like the knothole on a hollow oak tree. I half expect Ernie Keebler to crawl out with a pack of Pecan Sandies."
Ron Jeremy: "Nice dick...for a chipmunk."

Movies
Out: A group of teenagers are challenged to a dance contest and make it their life's mission to overcome all obstacles and win.
In: The teenagers have better things to do with their time.
Sample dialogue: "You've just been served!"
"Good for you, Fred Fucking Astaire. I don't have time for this shit."

Politics
Out: Empty-headed flag waving.
In: Empty-headed flag waving and macho posturing.

Blogs
Out: Blogs written by me.
In: Blogs written by everyone else.

You managed to work Dick Cheney, Jenna Jameson, Ernie Keebler, and Fred Astaire in one blog post. You're playing at another level, man. You gotta go pro.

Close big bro! Those robes are made out of baby seals that I clubbed myself!

Your blog will never be "out".

Blogger Scarlet Hip said...

Except the kids wouldn't know who Fred Astaire is, or anyone with talent for that matter.

Blogger Nick said...

Unless, csuave, you mean in the gay way. In which it already very much is 'out'.

Blogger John said...

Never question Nick on matters pertaining to homosexuality, csuave.

Man that was funny. Homeless or hipster, I'm growing my hair out, why, I don't know, at 47 I look like Andrew Fuckin Jackson out trying to pick up on young chicks. I need to get a hair cut but the little voice in my head keeps telling me to grow it longer.
