Houston

Lady Gag to do SB 51 halftime entertainment.

Seriously.  You’re going to have a Super Bowl in Houston, and not give the halftime show to a native of Pearsall, Texas, who has had many concerts in Houston and filled up both its current and former NFL stadiums beyond stated capacity?

I saw this choice as the NFL trying to distance themselves from the Black Power movement. I’m sure she’s a SJW but she pops up in Indy for the 500, like for fun/not being paid.

I heard she once went to a soup kitchen, and gave the baloney off her back so the poor could make sandwiches.

The NFL is screwed – they hate their money paying supporters (a.k.a. “White Folks”) and it will end up like the NBA. THe NBA desperately needs whitey, but it declines every year.

Goofball is shedding its White friendly image. I expect it will soon join the NBA felons league on the cable graveyard networks, like the former Turner Empire or ESPN 5 or something. The Ghetto incentivized NBA is really big in the Ghetto where they only lose money at the stadiums and get subsidized by dying retail and fast food outlets that cater to Urban Trash.

The half-time show will never again feature a Strait white male. (Sorry, I had to.)

You had to, but you deserve it anyway:

We’re GenX…snark is what we do. (1967 here)

Cynicism is what we do. (1977 here)

Though I admit, as a whole, we’re pretty damned good at snark. Maybe because cynicism is a good leading indicator of snark.

I don’t know how long you’ve been reading, so I don’t know if you’ve seen this:

Ignores off and finds other things to do. 1949 model here.

I don’t know how long you’ve been reading, so I don’t know if you’ve seen this [Field Guide to Modern Generations]

Off and on, I’ve read Countenance for maybe five years, AmRen since 2006. I missed your Field Guide at the time because I was struggling to complete my formatting work on the Why Race Matters reprint, and I was very ill.

I personally don’t feel cynical – cynical in the sense of “disappointed idealist”, nor in the sense of “I realize that everyone is full of sh*t so therefore I’ll just be an amoral hedonist.” (I know that I’ve always been out of step with everyone else, so apart from snarkiness, I can’t claim to be typical of our generation.) But I do see the shadow that boomers cast over us – some of them are now entering their sixth decade of adolescence – and it seemed to make a lot of us just give up. As we came of age, the boomers were lost in an orgy of self-congratulation for snivel rights and a “cultural revitalization led by The Beatles.” We had a sense that everything we tried (or could try) had been done before by the boomers, so it was pointless to try. Idealism, the Angry No and the Transcendent Yes? Tried in the ’60s. Rejectionism and Nihilism? Tried in the ’70s. Nowhere left to go.

Cynical in the sense of expect nothing of people and they’ll meet your expectations with flying colors.
