Hello, loves! It's TKOG over from Not That Kind Of Girl, absolutely thrilled to accept a posish as Secret Society of List Addicts' new contributing Wednesday writer! Being all Web 2.0 and twitterific, I occasionally find myself getting puffed up with the technological know-how and hubris of youth -- then I accidentally call a DVD player a VCR and a four-year-old is like, "wtf, n00b?" and, uh, I guess what I'm saying is, without further ado, here are some:
The Jonas Brothers. It's so cute how they taught those embryos to hold guitars!
Tumblr. So it's like a blog, but ... nobody can comment? And you repost other people's entries? And entries are legally required to be 75% song lyrics? Fine, but why do they scroll horizontally instead of vertically?!
Autoerotic Asphyxiation. Okay, technically adults do it too, but this trend is so popular on MySpace that it's about three months away from being the subject of the next Disney Channel Original Movie. Why don't kids these days masturbate like we did back in the day? Furtively and shamefully.
Skinny jeans on dudes. Look, I know you kids are too young to have to start worrying about infertility, but just remember what happened to Chandler and Monica on -- oh dang. You guys don't know what Friends is either, do you?
I give up. Class dismissed. Just stay the heck off my lawn. For extra credit, though, what youth trends confuse and disturb you fellow sticks-in-the-mud? Or are you guys hipper than me and actually like these things? Discuss in the comments.
