I'll come up with something in a minute.

Yes, uncle, now take one of the yellow ones.

Whenever people say something like “Kids today…” or bitch about Das Bieber or whatever it is kids are listening to I just want to scream “WHAT’S THAT? I CAN’T HEAR YOU OVER THE SOUND OF YOU BEING YOUR FUCKING MOM!”

And then I want to engage in an elaborately annoying monologue “YES, YES! I KNOW GRANDMA THE BEATLES OR WHATEVER THE FUCK BULLSHIT BAND YOU LISTENED TO AS A KID WERE BETTER! YOU HAVE TO SHUT UP NOW THOUGH, BECAUSE YOU’VE TURNED INTO ONE OF THOSE OLD PEOPLE WHO BITCHES ABOUT THE YOUNGER GENERATION! SHUT UP NOW OR I’LL SEND YOU TO A HOME! ONE OF THOSE BAD ONES! LIKE THE ONE WE SAW ON 60 MINUTES!”

Seriously, people my age are doing this. I want to drive a stake through their hearts, cut off their heads and stuff their mouths with garlic. Or at the very least slap them. I mean, yes Das Bieber is bad, but so was MC Hammer. Look up billboard for your favorite year, you’ll be surprised at how many of the great bands that everyone talks about for decades to come weren’t on the top 10 like ever.

It’s more than that though, and I thought at the very least we would be more aware of this horse shit and not put up with it. I mean, I’ve got a book somewhere, and in this book is a music critic. Now this music critic was based in Vienna at the time of Mozart and he starts one of his reviews with “The kids today, this garbage they listen to is just noise. There’s not music there, just a lot of noise.” Now, having read that, I’ve always been aware that those complaints have always been around, and that they hold no merit. I thought more people my age were also aware of this and would take means to prevent being Those Fucking People.

I mean, clearly I was wrong, but it’s still disheartening.

Now git off mah lahn.
