Skippy's Guide to Life and Eternal Happiness

Random Thoughts I

You know kids, every once in awhile I feel the need to unload my accumulated wisdom all in one shot. That and I know that I am incapable of coming up with half a dozen coherent paragraphs on one topic. So what follows is a special treat that you will be seeing from time to time (depending on how many mental blocks I have). You may not agree with everything I have to say, that is your right. If you don't agree with me...then you are a stone cold loser who should really stop wasting valuable oxygen that I could be using. Now stop it, you know I love you all, anyway I present to you, my loyal readers:

Random thoughts and observations from beyond the fringe

  • Just where the hell is the fringe and how did I get beyond it.
  • Why is it the boomers can get firehosed, gassed, arrested and beaten up. Then go into collective amnesia, sell out, drive expensive foreign cars and still wonder why I'm so apathetic.
  • I dig Billy Joel and I don't give a damn who knows it.
  • Am I the only one out there who realizes what a terrific band "Ubergirlz" is? Think of Debbie Gibson played on a chainsaw.
  • 'Friends'...just like life, except wittier, more charming, funnier, more attractive and only half an hour each week.
  • Could it be that our generation's hatred of yuppies has something to do with envy...nah they're just swine. Swine with good jobs, beautiful places to live and lots of cool lifestyle toys. Nope, no envy here.
  • Competitive temping-THE sport of the nineties
  • When will advertisers realize that we are not a hard generation to market to, we just don't have any money.
  • Did anyone else here believe in Bill Clinton once upon a time?
  • Never let anyone tell you your dreams are impossible...your dreams are impossible of course, but you should find that out on your own just like the rest of us.
  • You can have your lost generation and your silent generation, give me generation X any old day of the week. It's just...kickier.
  • Boy, I sure am glad that Mickey Mantle had that extra month or two to tell us that consuming large quantities of alcohol every day for thirty years isn't good for you.
  • Every once in awhile, not often, just every now and again, don't you think it would be nice to not have to be so damn cynical all the time.
  • One of the nice things about self-confidence is that you realize "the Piano" is a truly dreadful film, it's not that you're not getting it, it's just a really bad movie.
  • Our dream duet of the week, Jesse Helms and Barney Frank doing 'I got you babe'.
  • If not for the fact that it's two guys, the final kiss in "Jeffery" cracks my personal top five for all-time screen kisses. (it's still in the top ten, even with giving me the willies)
  • Depression is just God's way of telling you that your life sucks.
  • Cal Ripken Jr. - 2131 - nuff said.
