This short film (I can only recommend this particular one; there is another I don’t recommend)
This and this. These are poetry videos (I can only recommend these I post here; there are others I don’t recommend). I really struggle with poetry, perhaps I should see if mixed media poetry forms will help me. These are the same people who did the above video and Kissing in the Rain (which, if you need a semi-sweet respite, is just the thing). I just love their work.
Perhaps we need to be more interesting (otherwise known as “having a life”).
I’m constantly collecting bookmarks, and since I enjoy link posts (sometimes a source of the bookmarks), I thought I would make link posts occasionally. I’d prefer mine to be themed though, so this one is about generations, generation divide, etc.
I’m still not tired of finding new satires on millennials. So, here is another one some of our friends mentioned.
Here is an extremely interesting division of all the U.S. generations (I found this after wondering how many generations back any American could trace his lineage, assuming the furthest limit).
This is a main cause for millennial issues. Also, hilarious, and points out parental issues (although you can have brats without material indulgence, or any indulgence at all) . . . and the snowball effect. This is common sense, people. Or rather should be.
Can you score well on these 8th grade exams? I printed them out and started, then realized I should just use them for reference to study!
I’m a millennial, I realize, and I don’t like when the boomers bash us, um, I don’t think the people responsible for raising us and our parents should talk about irresponsibility, ya know?! I’ve read several criticisms of that generation’s selfishness . . . snowball effect. Nevertheless, I am usually disgusted with my generation and the one after that (Gen Z, post-Millennial, iGen, whatever you want to call it), I know
somemost criticisms are true (I just don’t swallow the disbelief, self-righteousness, and irresponsibility of the older generations, um, sorry, its pretty easy to figure out how it happened). Anyway, when people hilariously point out the absurdities of my generation, I enjoy it mightily (and I know I deserve a lot of it too).
Watch this video. It’s hilarious. One of the laughing out loud videos. While you are on the Studio C channel, watch, “You’re so Lucky.” Another good recent one dealing with the competitiveness of hardships (!) and the condescending, “I wish I had your kind of time” attitude. Not as good as “You Deserve a Better You” but still hilarious. Yay, for clean humor. And yay, for particularly relevant humor.
