Note to Today's Youth via Comment at Willisms
(A note to kids today: Date goth chicks, they expect to be disappointed and unhappy. With that as a startingblock, you can do no wrong.)
What can I say about this quote. This in the middle of a blog post about growing up and discovering the coolness of the stuff your parents were into as a kid. As a child of the 80's and early 90's, I remember when I first started discovering the coolness of my parents. But then again, the premise of the article is basically retro-coolness for geeky kids of the 1990's. That pretty much describes me. The 70's and 60's had some great stuff. Led Zeppelin, the Beatles, Monty Python, Mel Brooks, etc. Let me add the Stones and Star Wars. Possibly old school SNL.
A great post, but it makes you wonder what parts of the 1990's will be retro-cool to our kids in like 20 years. I am quite sure it will not be American Idol or Skating with Celebrities or Britany.
