:: He knew that the weblogging would be a stone's cold gas ::
Wednesday, February 09, 2005
I made a note during my blogiatus to link to Mike Sacks' very amusing parody of older writers trying too hard to capture youth culture, right down to their overexerted attempts to co-opt a cool vernacular and drop pop culture references.
It was a few hours later and Kyle, Larry, and Janet were walking down the main avenue of Fort Lauderdale, searching for the fraternity house they had read about on the AOL.com.
"I'm so high that I could fly," said Kyle sarcastically, taking a puff from the marijuana cigarette he had just lit up. "The world is all about colors and love and freedom."
I know that it's a specific jab at Tom Wolfe's recent efforts, but as Low Culture pointed out today the pattern repeats itself in both fiction and non-fiction insatiably.
