The View From Here

Attack of the Clones !

with 2 comments

My wife and I went shopping today for work clothes (her).  What never fails to amaze me is all the kids today and their manner of dress – did they all get the same memo or something ?  Originality for the most part is “right out” !  With the pervasiveness of stores to choose from – A&F, PacSun, AE, Hollister, etc…, – they don’t stand a chance.  Hey, I’m no fashionista, but I do OK.  

Sure, they all might put their little twist on “The Look” or accessorize, but for the most part they all look the same.  Question : Why would a kid from Cleveland need to wear shorts and flip-flops in the middle of January, be tanned, and look like they just stepped off the beach in LA ?  Oh, and add to that their “I’m cooler than you” attitude.  Great marketing, that’s why.

 We have the freedoms to dress how we want,  listen to what we like, post obscure random stuff (like this) on the internets – whatever we like !  I’m not even sure why any of this bothers me, except for the fact that their attitudes exude that they’re sooooo much cooler than us and got it all figured out.  I think the marketing gurus are the real ones that have it all figured out…

  2. You said it ! How can “Music Television” not show music videos anymore ? It should be called “Real World Road Rules Laguna Sweet 16 Television”…
