Aww, I feel so loved :cloud9:
The world has always been like that, you're just realizing it for the first time. They were like that when you were a kid too, you're remembering it with rose-tinted glasses.
Although I swear movies are getting worse.
Everybody likes to blame the symptoms as if they're the cause.
Also, I don't accept that MTV is more vapid than cultural institutions of previous eras (erae?).
Have you ever seen old footage of kids of the 60s and 70s talking about current events and their opinions? They were complete morons.
When we were kids Michael Jackson was a hero, dork.
I have to agree with Dondrei here. Decrying the state of the current generation is just a part of getting older, I guess.
The reason why is that all Hollywood wants is the base of everything. Like Humour for instance, I bet those guys are like, 'Ok, Where can we place a crotch hit in this film just to make everyone laugh?'
This is one of the reasons I don't watch TV (excepting Futurama and Family Guy). Another reason is that this isn't limited to adolescents.
As long as we're *****ing about language, what chaps my *** are the kids (and young adults) who feel the need to preface all their statements with, 'like.' The insidious thing is that this fooishness is infectious.
Everything is not a ****ing similie. Instead of filling that awkward space with like, how about you put a little thought into what you're going to say?
So, um, like OMG Mac. Like, um what about those the guys that say, um, like, you know, all the time. You know? Um, like, yeah :smiley: you know?
Nah, they're being kids. Anakha1 is old.
People are ignorant.
Young people are louder and more ignorant.
Hope that cleared that up for you.
Anyone remember the Darwin Awards ... oh they always made me chuckle.
I'm a kid and I seriously say they're idiots. You've gotta see some of these kids that live in my neighborhood...
I think it was best said by Joe Mantegna in Airheads, "If it's too loud, you're too old."
You're fine, dude. Log on the ugly side, jerk.
Like that probably started like before you were even like born.
When did Zappa make Valley girl, anyways?
You do realize that some of the artists of your time (whatever that may be) were considered outlandish in their own respective times. You can't really judge these people for being stupid/retarded although some deserve it i.e. 50 Cent, southern rap, Paris Hilton, gothic rock
And you are the normal one i take it?
I'm the least idiotic of the idiotic bunch in my neighborhood? :tongue:
Besides, I really wouldn't call myself normal. I have my odd moments.
It is true, kids these days are getting stoopid. It is bad when you can't have an intelligent conversation without someone inserting some stoopid quote from a stoopid movie/TV show. Really.
I don't know who Bam is, but I really couldn't care less about what he did last week on some show.
That's so twenty years ago, language crimes have come so far since then.
I don't think pop culture references are new. I'm not exactly old, but I've been doing that for 20 years. You can still have an intelligent conversation with liberal use of quotes and references. Literary references used to be a mark of high society.
That is true, but I mean the quality of the show. Sitcom/comedy movies are nothing new, but what these people say is....I don't even know the word to describe it.
I guess you would have to hear it, since I refuse to duplicate it here.
