watching mtv at age 36
watching mtv at age 36 i notice not just that i'm getting older, but that the rate at which i'm getting older is itself rising. that is, i notice an acceleration in the general rate of disenfranchisement — it's aging by speedup, not by age. you feel like you're trying to catch up with all the people you used to think you were cooler than, like your republican sister even. the beastie boys look like respectable adults. now catching up with the uncool.
