Crucial Asparagus Related Information

Are “I’m with stupid” shirts officially the calling card of the socially oblivious?

It seems as fads come and go, there comes a time where everybody sort of agrees “yeah, for sure, No Fear shirts totally do suck”.

For some poor soul to head out for a day downtown with this never-that-funny, definitely-not-now tee on, it makes me want to help.  Even it’s supposed to be ironic.

It’s sole, redeeming quality?  It probably pioneered the sequence of “You looked better on MySpace” and “Your Mom’s in my Top 8″ tee’s that made me laugh, one time each, five years ago.  Props.

Alright, f**k it, I like Twitter.

There, I said it.

I don’t feel good about it.  I’m not smiling while I tweet, proud of being involved in a nauseatingly sweet social device.  I fought it.  I planted my feet in the flood like the Trees in the Lord of the Rings, but I got swept away.

I only follow 19 people, but I can’t wait to see what Bill Simmons, Fitzy GFY and Shaq have to say on the daily (actually, not Shaq, he think’s he’s a bunch more funny than he is).

It combines a potential laugh with narcissistic indulgence.  Who wouldn’t want to know I made the best asparagus tonight?

I’m not saying its a good thing.  In fact, I could do with out BarackObama letting me know which representatives to write to influence legislation.  But I definitely see a place in the world for Bill Simmons tweeting about soccer:

“sportsguy33 Third great save of the half by Tim Howard! He’s sooooooo getting laid by Lindsay Lohan when he gets back to the States.”

 ”sportsguy33 Are the announcers worried that if they admit that was a goal it will somehow put US troops in danger?”

Or, my own musings:

jtbourne I like to touch as many things as possible on the subway to really put my immune system through a good workout.”

“ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED?!?”

 On July 1st (Canada Day!), free agent signings will be out of control, providing me with ample material to break down.  Stick with me, I’ll provide some commentary as it happens. 

No doubt I’ll be providing factual, non-judgemental musings.  You know how I do.

    OK, so what about No Fear hats, ’cause ..um..somebody I know still has one.

    Haha. Those are good. Like I’m the authority on trends all the sudden. Just because No Fear shirts suck doesn’t mean I threw them all out. Plus, remember:
    It’s not the size of the dog in the fight, its the size of the fight in the dog.

    I used to rock the Make 7Up Yours shirt when that was cool, which was never, but I still rocked that shit! On another note, my mother is a HUGE fan of your blog (would be a bigger fan of Kronsch’s blog if he ever wrote one, she liked him wayyy more than you at UAA) and wanted me to convey congrats on the en-convincingBreezytomarryyou-gagement. No clue why she doesn’t post it herself but who am I to argue with my mom?

    No Fear tarps – there is a blast from the past. Takes me back to elementary school when I was envious of all the high school dudes who got to rock one. What’s worse is that I think my first foray in that genre of t-shirts was actually a “No Surrender”, the knock-off, Fredo Corleone to No Fear’s Michael.

    Don’t sell yourself short, Justin. As more and more people follow your blog, and tweets, the scope of your influence in modern culture could become, dare we say it, almost Oprah-like.
