Typed too much here but let's be honest, woke commentary/distaste is where the money is now
Its fucking weird all this. And really dull as well
a lot of words have probably been spilt on the subject already on here, but i come back again and again to thinking how unpredictable and unexpected a twist in culture wokeness has been. i think overall its a pretty positive thing, all things considered, but i don't think anyone predicted the swing from the licentiousness of the 90s to authoritarian morality being a powerful youth culture. i'm struck by how much of the rebellion is directed against the mores of people 10 years old rather than those of people 30 years older as well. it's a truly surprising eruption, a new configuration of elements.
the other noticeable thing is that it's happened without a new form of music which is a bit unusual for something which is (very broadly) a youth subculture.
like punk or the 60s hippy thing or jungle / raves or whatever, its going to be interesting to see what parts of it get coopted into the mainstream in the future
