Cultural Fascists

I have something to say you Cultural Fascists, I am fully allowed to like Keaneu Reaves as an actor and Paris Hilton as an interesting heiress. I don't HAVE to like Nirvana (because they really weren't that great) or Pink Floyd. I am not saying that I do not like Pink Floyd, as I certainly do listen to The Wall about every day, but I am saying that I do not Have to like them. Cult classic movies should be watched and can be like by some, but just because they make great screen printed T-shirts and have some thought provoking lines does not mean they are all great pieces of film. I am a nerd about superhero comic, but that does not mean that I have to talk about them all the time like I did when I was in third grade. And let my just state that when your mother yelled at you for doing something because every one else was doing it and she asked if you would jump off a cliff with them, This is what she was concerned about. Create some new thoughts in your 'alternative' and 'unique' neuro transmitters and stop telling me what I can and cannot like when you really have power over my personal aesthetic opinion. Oh and p.s. Inception was about as complex as watching Teletubbies (No one should think Teletubbies is hip either, my four year old brother doesn't think they are cool and neither should you).

I only tell you this out of love. I like Nacy Drew fashion and I read every comic imaginable as a kid. I love the matrix and I think that Barbie is a harmful tool to shape young girls into porn stars. But that doesn't mean that I am going to force you to feel the same way.
