This Blog Could Be Your Life


We rock. So much. See, people often forget how awesome we truly are.

I mean, we're writing regularly posted offerings whatever about we feel like. People can even comment on them. I can't wait for the feature spot in Time Magazine. Not as if we read Time or anything.

Probably our biggest innovation is our unprofessional nature. I mean, we're just normal guys with no journalistic history who tell you what we honestly think. Really, it's all kinds of brilliance and symbolism. We even can express a thinly veiled distaste for traditional media outlets, and all sorts of other things most people hold in high regard.

Imagine us as underground Steve Irwin postnews artists, that's just how cool we are.

Mostly, we can talk about things that have never been talked about ever before. On the rare occasions where we have to broach old, stale subjects, our unique and fresh points of view offer grand, sweeping, amazing, and inconceivable insight. When we write, the truth so saturates the page that it can get on our hands if we aren't careful.

And another great invention of ours. Cynicism! No one has ever been cynical before. Especially not in America.

Over all, you should be grateful you have us around. When we're crowned as the Voice Of Our Generation and write for the entire world, you can say you knew us first.

your picture is ridiculous

can anyone ever revert to an optimist after being cynical?

Have you forgotten the rules that lie within your Hipster book already, Tyler? The ones about how hip people don't need to let others know how awesome they are? And something about hair...or sunday school...uh...

Or have you just run out of things to rant about? It is apparently my duty as the future Voice of Our Generation to completely destroy/make inane whatever it was you were talking about. I feel I have done my job admirably.

Excuse me, did that Tyler's article have a point?
Yes, you guys speak with the a level of intelligence relatively above those of the average John Q Publics. But still isn't there something going on in the world to comment about. i mean you commenting about your own blog is like a musician commenting about their own music. Wait, bad example (see Pitchfork). Anyway its not my blog, so just continue ego stroking.
Oh, and yes i did read your sarcasm disclaimer.

Well as far as I was told, the reason for this particular "we're awesomer than you" bit was that someone's glorious leader (Kevin)felt we should get back to the basics of what this place was founded on. Perhaps you'll notice similarities between this post and some of the earliest ones. (Personally I blame Nader for the change with his lack of straight up sarcasm, but whaddayagonnado?)
