|Curiosity: What Makes Humans Humans|
"Like, iPads are sooooo last season!"
|Y! O! U! You wanna!?|
I have absolutely no idea how this happened, but the standards of good are starting to reverse themselves like an hourglass that has been turned. People are now paying more attention to train wrecks instead of the majestic branches of the trees that surround them. The train wreck is just too repulsive, but no one can just look away.
Face it, DT girls, you aren't really that hot. (Well, at least you admitted it in the interview...) As this guy said, "Listen, you two girls, it's not attractive when you open your legs wider and faster than Google's Homepage!" Maybe if you two have better personalities, you guys wouldn't be so bad and would have prom dates. (Well, when I was in high school, I wasn't able to get a prom date myself because at my ridiculous height of 4'10, almost all the girls in my school towered above me. Short guys: we have problems too; we're just like you, only we're short, short, short, short)

(Disclaimer: for those who do not like pop punk, my point here is NOT to promote the genre and/or this band, but to get the point across that bad is starting to become the new good and that bands who work so hard to get their sound heard and see music as a passion don't get the credit they deserve.)
And here's TeraBrite, a two-piece band who parodied the song Hot Problems. Yes, the girl vocalist, Sabrina Abu-Obeid, is way hotter than Double Take. She's awesome too. This is the awkward moment when the parody is actually better than the song:
The culture of excellence is already in a degrading state in this world. If bad really is the new good nowadays, people mostly do the bad stuff now on purpose just for attention and fame. If this nasty trend continues, I'm just wondering what will become of art, music, and literature for our future generations. Man, I feel sorry for them! Gone are the days when powerful songs with deep, emotional and philosophical lyrics ruled the radio, the days when books used to inspire people and change lives, and the days when art was an amazing spectacle to behold. Money and fame are already starting to replace the true purposes of art, music, and literature: passion, self-expression, and inspiration.
