Annoying New York whiners

2006-12-19 14:57:53.383882+00 by Dan Lyke 1 comments

I've seen a lot of people link to this annoying snarky New York media site that fancies itself a blog or network of blogs (nope, no linky love from me) that's titled "Bad Media: Blog Lingo Clichés". If you haven't seen this, remain blissfully ignorant and carry on. If you have, then:

If you're primarily interested in the genitalia of assorted celebrities and which one of the vapid but well-photographed snogged which other one, then you have no place calling out anyone on stylistic issues. We don't ask you to drop the sense of ironic detachment that's really masking an underlying fear that nobody really likes you anyway, you don't ask us to stop making fun of that, okay?

I mean, really, yo. Just STFU already. Um, we know that your life sucks, that you'd never admit it, but to get there you've made the Worst. Decisions. Ever. but when we see crap like this it makes us feel nauseous; I just threw up a little bit in my mouth. So we should abide by some unloved New Yorker's desire to say "hey, everybody, look at me, no, really, I define cool now"? Seriously? Seriously? Oy. What's next? "Urdu is the new 1337speek"? We'll just happily stay here with our cliché-y goodness while you... wait for it... sink further into your egogasm so badly it makes our toes bleed.
