eagermuscle saidWhat about speaking with false authority? There's a lot of that going on, too.
MikeW saidAn animated recital of the poem "Typography" by Taylor Mali:
MikeW saidLiving in California where 'Valley', like, started, expressing facts as if they're questions is, you know, like, the way you make sure people are getting strung along with your thread of conversation? I mean, I remember the first time I was, well, eaves dropping on these two Valley Girls having a conversation in a public place together and I was, like, what are they saying because even though it was obviously english, wow, I really couldn't figure it out or anything and this was, like, 1980 something? Pretty soon everyone was saying "totally kewl" ya know? I mean, it hadn't bee that long ago that we'd been saying shit like 'man' and 'groovy' and 'wow' with appropriate inflection and feigned interest so, whatever, this was, well, the way teenage valley girls were talking so you just knew that was, like the kewlest thing ever, right? And its been this way more or less ever since except now with texting and all u dont nd 2 mny letrs.
