Feeling Screwed Up in a Screwed Up Place

Diving back a little into Gen X flavored stuff. This time by talking a bit about one of my favorite movies that I think is definitively Gen X: Pump Up the Volume.

It’s a movie I’ve written about before, so I won’t go in depth again in this bunch of text.

What I will say here is that this is yet another one of those vlogs that I’d love to go back to one day and re-visit with a pre-written script (and teleprompter). I almost totally forgot the centerpiece quote “Feeling screwed up at a screwed up time in a screwed up place does not necessarily make you screwed up.”

And I would have loved to splice in some clips. Have some more elegant parallels set up.

Anyway… it’s an important movie to me. It’s an important movie for a lot of people I know. Hopefully it’ll be an important movie for a new person or two who haven’t heard about it until now.

So, check out the vlog and remember: Talk hard.
