1) I don't sip lattes, I drink beers at cafés.
2) It's not about taking DjScrew over philosophy but about saying that it would be absurd for me to talk or act like Dj Screw while pretty normal to quote Schopenhauer and a somewhat "natural" result of my cultural upbringing.
3) The "ignant junkie" was a joke, I was basically saying appropriating the language of rap songs was ridiculous while doing the same.

Fuuma, you may be right, but in your scenario, the result is mere silliness. What we should be more zeroed-in on is the white American middle-aged male's appropriation of the lower class Jewish shep-herd of circa AD 200. I assure you, the consequences are much more grave...

I would've assumed that good old self-consciousness would prevent nerdy kids from saying "swag" and other such lingo. Apparently I was wrong.

It's not offensive, I just feel embarrassed for such people.

Mmmmm pomo. I remember buying anti-O and then realizing i had just wasted good food monies biggrin.gif

I suppose I could have photoshopped my ugly mug at least.. oh well
