sorry i will read this
edit: yeah all true. and the culture thing never really went away. chucks, skinny jeans, a shit tshirt and denim is still reliably the coolest way to dress in a certain setting. we haven't really had any rockstars since, except jack white and i guess muse at about the same time. so that's weird. the rappers are the rock stars now, but i can't remember if white kids really listened to rap in 2001. they were beginning to.
