This is the denouement of the convo about the actual F’ed Up/Perry beef. Pink Eye, as usual, seems nice enuff. And the angry tweets from the Perry army are guffaw-adorable.
You know what’s unique about that generation? For them. the Internet is more than a second life. It IS their life. For us (well, you’re a lot older than me) the Internet is a place where we goof off and maybe read something but as soon as we close our computers, it’s gone. For them, the computer never really shuts off.
I never thought of that. Maybe that’s why that gay kid killed himself after the blow job video came out. We’d go, “Yikes, that’s embarrassing” and avoid going online but for him, it was like having to wear a sandwich board that said, “I blow dudes.”
It’s also why nobody got the FEAR reference. Old hardcore quotes are not going to click with Katy Perry fans.
You know Ian Mackaye says DOA invented the word hardcore?
I know, but they weren’t the first hardcore band.
The Rude Kids from Sweden. They were doing fast punk back in the late 70s and it is the dictionary definition of hardcore.
