So, this world is full of pathetic people who desperately try to fit in, and in that quest, they literally end up getting lost in their own bullshit. Then these people live their lives trying to be a constructed image of themselves to portray to the world. These people….sadly…end up being a majority of the populous. The commoner.
Take this for example, in the year 2000, it would have been deemed super lame to like superheroes. Flash-forward to modern times…
…And this infographic literally started at 2014… almost a good 6 years after the superhero craze began.
For another example, in the year 2000 liking music that used the banjo would have been seen as really stupid…
And then suddenly bands like Mumford and Sons, and Old Crow Medicine show and shit dominated the hipster market. The banjo became commonplace.
The point is, everything is relative. “Cool” is literally dictated by the companies who sell you the product. Don’t believe me? OVERALLS are back people… fucking overalls.
God, if you’re real, please destroy Coachella. Also, PS people… like this fucker even knows what Ziggy Stardust is or who David Bowie is. Which brings up another great point. In 2000, liking artists that your parents listened to would have been extremely uncool. However, in the present day people are buying Led Zeppelin shirts without even knowing any of their songs.
OK, SO WHAT IS MY POINT RIGHT?
My point is, be yourself. Anyone who wants to put you down for dressing the way you dress, liking the music you like, or the way you act, or whatever the case… they’re all just posers. They only like what is popular right now because they lack personality. If you like bubble pop and miss bands like Aqua, then whatever, blast that music all you want. In 20 years it will probably be cool again and suddenly the commoners will love you.
And secondly, don’t even let the common man’s opinions bring you down. Once you know how easily the commoner is bought and sold, then their opinion should mean nothing.
Sure, they will love telling you not to chase your dreams, or to be more normal, or whatever-the-fuck. But all you gotta is put a bitch in their place.
OF COURSE THIS IS A METAPHOR.. Don’t actually smack a ho. But trust me, by being yourself and not caring about what they say, then they lose all their power. So in a way, you’re still giving em a good….
…and you’re giving it to em’ right where it hurts!
Alright people, stay strong and stay yourselves!
