It seems that every generation comes to think of the next generation’s music as senseless garbage. Why, not long ago people even said that noise rock was just noise. And it’s not limited to music, either! Any form of expression that feels vibrant and new to young people feels worthless and childish to older people. This comic, for instance, probably strikes many of you as stupid and amateurish. Fortunately for me, I’ve constructed this argument so that you all now look old and out of touch for feeling that way. So it looks like I win once again!
If ever you have a question about Gargoyles (the animated series from 1994, obviously) there is a very handy resource that you can use: Ask Greg. Unfortunately, Ask Greg is a service provided by Greg Weisman, not the act of asking our Greg. Our Greg has neither the time nor the inclination to deal with these queries.
And no, I didn’t consult Greg Weisman with my question. I was being lazy.
We both recently discovered this nifty little life hack, and we had to share it with you. Here we’ve been limiting ourselves to cereal all this time like chumps! Think of the possibilities! What else might go well in a bowl of milk? Peas? Goldfish crackers? M&Ms? Just imagine!
I know a lot of you may be confused about the timeline, but if you check the date of this post, you’ll clearly see that it’s not Mother’s Day. I mean, by all means, hug your (or someone else’s) mother, and tell her you appreciate and/or love her. But do it because you want to, not because of the holiday.
Also, be prepared to make enemies with the powerful greeting card industry. They do not take kindly to unofficial or spontaneous displays of affection.
This one is one of those “real, actual conversations that actually happened.” I haven’t eaten meat for a few years now, but I’ve never felt like I was ready to go full vegan. That’s why I invented the patented Ted Cavooris One Day (or Two Days (or Sometimes Three Days)) A Week Vegan Diet Regimen Featuring Penalty Days! The name needs some work.
Ironically, being less-than-fully vegan has caused me to more fully embody that old stereotype: I tell everyone about my diet, even more than I would if I were a real vegan.
