All yall. How long have you been too fucking cool to be cool? What happened? I know. Somebody thought you were hip and had it going on with style, edge, and a shit load of resistance...right? Game over and you knew the score instantly, didn't you? As soon as you were mentioned in the conversation of "cool" you were done. What a sad dilemma you endure, trying to create, inspire, and carve a line in the cultural edge of a city like Portland. You're so worried about being "too hip" and "cliche" that you HAVE to hate. Who eats at 'yada yada'? Who bikes with "blah, blah, blah"? Who works for 'sucky sucky'? Get out of this scene before it's too late. But, Where do you go after Portland?,... Not to be cool, but to be your fucking dirty awesome self. Don't tell anyone where you're going, cuz "they" will come for you and "lather, rinse, repeat" and you'll be in the same situation. The coolest dude you know
