I don't know. The description of the list might pose a more convincing argument if the list itself had more face validity. C'mon, entries like: that's hot, i heart, hella, uber, hubby, pics, teehee, hottie, bf, gf, first post? A subculture clearly spawned in hell. Also, the lister's use of smiley faces, lol's, and terms such as "newbies" in his own posts makes him seem a less credible critic.
Electronic music used pure sounds, completely calibrated. You had to think digitally, as it were, in a way that allowed you to extend serial ideas into other parameters through technology. - Luc Ferrari (One Frenchman who didn't get the memo I guess)
Do I wish it was on its way out? Definitely. Do I think people are starting to use greater variety in their words of assent? Not really. Do I wish people would stop interviewing themselves? Abso-frickin-lutely. (Actually, I think the self-interview tic may be waning.)
I didn't expect this to pop up on the recent word list on the home page. Just added it as my least favorite word. Not a bad word in itself, but it has become a viral replacement for all other words of agreement.
"23 squidoo" is a silly, squiddy allusion to 23 skiddoo, which was a silly thing people used to say in the 1920s and became an emblem of the decade, as groovy did for the 1960s. I sort of understand the "skiddoo" part here (related maybe to skip and almost certainly to skedaddle), but I have no idea why the number 23 became attached to it.
