You don’t hear the term generation gap anymore. I used to think that was because we simply assumed it existed and didn’t need to identify it any longer. But is it possible that the baby boomers so dominated youth culture as to have defined it for generations to come? What with those aging boomers going with their kids to Foo Fighters concerts, has the gap narrowed to a thin fissure?

Of course, there is Britney and Eminem and Blink 182. But will college students 30 years hence be singing Eminem songs and purchasing his likeness for their walls? Or will they still be singing old Elvis songs and buying Hendrix posters?

Sometimes I don’t know what to think. Let me rephrase that. Almost always I don’t know what to think. But sometimes it’s worse than other times. This is one of those times.

As for the times themselves, I have no idea what they are a doin’. I only know that it’s always been fun to use bad grammar.
