Justin Bieber, One Direction, and YOLO swag
Where if you are intelligent, you’re strange
But cool if your pants sag
Can anyone explain that to me?
I am from boy bands, but I listen to rock
Sparkly pink, neon skinny jeans
How do I stand out in all black?
Everyone else looks the same to me
This generation is way out of whack
I am from lol, rofl, and omg
Srsly wht if we rlly talkd like this?
Where has English gone?
Surely this is not the same thing
Shakespeare must be rolling in his grave
I am from the 21st century
Where intelligence is neglected
Boy bands are worshiped
And there is no music on MTV
And how can we fix it?
I´m even more afraid of the new "random-generation" - watching Doctor Who because the 10th Doc is cute, D&D is suddenly cool (I got bullied in school for scifi and tabletops, remember these days?) and StarTrek is nothing to be ashamed of anymore, since in the new films they all look like they are casted from different boybands.
Also "metal" is suddenly cool, while with "metal" most seem only to understand "Bullet for my Valentine"
I remember when Emos appeared and people started calling me an emo too, now, a few years later I´m called "random" while I don´t even now what this Homestuck is... Its like the 14-16 year old people are immitating a state of "Being openminded", collecting and searching for anything that could make them a real person with individuality, while thy and up as "random" - a collection of bits, parts and remnants of other lifes... Its so sad to see this attention seeking hords every day...
PS: I hope my grammar is correct, english is not my first language^^
I'm only 16 and so people lump me in with this sad generation that only cares about how much they can freak out the generations of the past >_<
Oh and no worries, your grammar is just fine
You hit it right on the head.
At least you didn't have to live through bad disco music, mullet hair, flaired out bell bottom pants, "dig" and "groovy", guitar belt straps, and LSD...that was pretty bad as well (except then intelligence was accepted, not disrespected)...
We all bare through this garbage; unfortunately, I think the less intelligent seem to be growing in leaps and bounds and defining what we see and hear - which is all flash and no substance.
You've got to find the right crowd to hang out with...then you won't have to worry about the childish, unintelligent junk!
