ROCK 'N' ROLL BON MOTS #026
It is pointless and lazy to complain about the current pop culture. The only pop culture anyone really likes is what you experienced as a youngster, which you've convinced yourself is somehow the same as the pop culture that came before it, unlike current pop culture. This is true for everyone, and you simply have to admit it rather than trying to find some justification for disliking "what the kids are listening to" besides "I just don't like it." (I.e., television made them stupid, irony made them stupid, stupidity made them stupid, etc.) The only legitimate response to disliking pop culture as a whole is to go out and make something better. Anything less is a cop-out.
(this being an early response to Kael's I Lost It)
 Important note: this is not true. Do your best to remember this.
