what i’m saying is

that our generation has felt helpless from the beginning … and that’s the problem … war, global warming, genocide, it’s all around us and people would rather just surf the net to see what they’re friends are doing. we have to convince people that they have the power to make a difference.

dude just about to get laid: Do you remember when you stopped being afraid of the dark?

former lesbian chick?: no

dude: I was 7. I was still afraid, but I decided I wasn’t going to let it control me anymore.

chick: I’m still afraid of the dark.

Reason (or part!) No. 21 to never watch quarterlife.

Ugh. I just wasted a huge part of my life.

brian.jpgFunny though, I was watching this show and thinking “try all you want, ‘Eric’ or ‘Jed,’ but you’re never going to be Jordan Catalano.” A little research reveals that the people who made My So-Called Life are also responsible for this cringe-worthy mess. In fact, Brian Krakow wrote episodes 4 and 5. Ha!  If this is what it’s like to be 25, I don’t want any part of it. I mean, it just seems, like, you have to agree to have a certain personality or something. For no reason. Just to make things easier for everyone. But when you think about it, I mean, how do you know it’s even you?

Redeeming line from quarterlife:

chick: I’m a writer.

other chick: You’re not a writer. You’re an associate editor.

    You know what I keep thinking? At 25 we’re past the quarterlife, unless we’re living to 100. So we’re more like third-life. But that doesn’t sound as catchy.

    This is going to be one of those shows where everybody’s cooler than you are and that’s like the appeal. Like, coke-buying, mansion-party-having Garden State.
