Will Smith Was Right After All - Parents Just Don't Understand

Jazzy-fresh  Who'd have thunk it? Either I am getting old or pop culture just keeps getting weirder and weirder.

Take this week for example. The volume of things I don't understand are staggering. I feel so uncool that I want to yell at hippies to get haircuts and call the cops on neighborhood garage bands. Hey! You kids get off of my lawn! I smell mustard!

Speaking of good old Abraham Simpson I think he said it best when he said ""I used to be with it. But then they changed what it was. Now what I'm with isn't it, and what's it seems scary and weird. It'll happen to you."

And I am proof. Here are several examples of things from the past five or six days that I just cannot comprehend:

1) Why was Gary Coleman's family taking pictures of his dead body?

Picture 17

Please don't say eBay, please don't say eBay.

Oh. She sold them to the tabloids. It is better to have loved and lost and profited since the whole world knows he kicked the shit out of you anyway.

2) Who thought that this outfit was a good idea?

Picture 8

I mean, obviously at least Rihanna and whomever designed this monstrosity. There are like at least seven things going on here that I don't understand.

You would think that a woman with Rihanna's body would look good in anything. You would be wrong.

3) Elton John sang at Rush Limbaugh's wedding.

Wait, somebody else just married Rush Limbaugh? Also, Elton John likes fascists? Also, fascists like Elton John? I am so confused.

4) You don't even want to get me started on silly bandz.

. . . . .

Goon Squad Sarah wonders if she will be done with work in time to hit the early bird special at Ponderosa.

Apryl's Antics

I just heard yesterday that Silly Bandz come in necklaces, too.


I'm totally not with it. I just had to google silly bandz. Also, substituting "z" for "s"? That's another "it" I'm not with apparently.


Yeah, had to google silly bandz as well. Those just look uncomfortable to wear ...

Also, can I just state that I have no idea what kids these days are wearing. Just yesterday my husband and I couldn't tell if a kid we saw by our local elementary school was a boy or a girl. With all the emo "fashion" and skinny pants I just feel so old and out of touch!


I had to google Silly Bandz as well. Eh, they're not so different from the rubber bracelets of my youth, and not much more expensive, adjusted for inflation. I'll give em a pass. From the commentary I was expecting them to be something more extreme, like slap bracelets with extra barbed wire.
