I am going to have to insist that everyone, including me, stop saying they like things "unironically." I will bet that there are people who say they like things "unironically" more often than they say they like things, straight up, and the thought of them chills my spine.

I think it is a good step towards ending the separation of our likes and dislikes into two piles, things we full-on like because we feel they're acceptable to like, and things we like but have to say we like ironically because they are from 1999, or air on MTV, or both. When we tag our appreciation of something as unironic we are essentially saying "Any right-thinking person would assume I 'like' this thing, in air quotes, but I actually just LIKE it, in spite of knowing, as a right-thinking person, that I should have to somehow blunt my feelings about it with sarcasm. By acknowledging all this, I'm getting to have it both ways!" And that is tiresome. That is pointless. That is taking one step into pure, wonderful, genuine LIKE while leaving your other foot in Cool Kid Land because you think you're supposed to.

If I tell you I like it, then I like it. If there is a cowardly qualifier on my affection, I will let you know.

Couldn't that be construed as you just taking that to a next ultra-cooler level? By acknowledging the acknowledgment of the acknowledgement that something is mainstream "uncool"? Did I type that correctly?

Ok, but then people have to stop laughing and nodding their head to indicate the "get it" when I say I love Tyler Perry and dollar stores.

Definitely one of the best things I've read about the silliness of our whole meta-, irony mindfuck.
I just moved to a part of Brooklyn that's known alternately as Bushwick or East Williamsburg.

Some people like calling it Bushwick because they'd "never want to be associated with those fucking hipsters." I find myself calling it East Williamsburg because I don't want to be associated with those people who are so self-conscious that they never want to be associated with those fucking hipsters.

It's madness.

things will never be simple again, there is no way we can ever take a step back to normality without that step being radical or a statement in itself, I do however like the idea of steps to things being RIGHT.

People in New York/Brooklyn/Williamsburg need to stop and realize that the things the people their age in their neighborhood of their culture are universal to people outside of that little, tiny (albeit semi-influential) corner of the world.

There exist places where people in their twenties don't say they like things "unironically," I promise.
