Here’s a brief list of stuff that’s getting my goat and winding me up this week:

“Gen Z”, “Gen X”, “Millennial”, “Boomer”, etc.

I see so much rubbish about this online. People are people. Your generation doesn’t define you any more than your hair colour does. It’s lazy thinking, a replacement for any kind of nuance. I’ve done this myself and it annoys me that I have.

So if you accidentally find yourself making a generational generalization, try to remember that you are wrong, and stop doing it.

How in god’s name can resurfacing one junction take so long?

I can’t read your soft-pawed gossamer graphite-trace in the half-light of the night-time pub. Do me a favour and borrow a pen. I’ve got loads of them..

The Christmas Market

Honestly, I just cannot see what people get out of this. If someone would explain the pleasure in spending such a large amount of money on such a small amount of stuff, I’d be glad to listen. Maybe it will help me understand how to make some money.

Music Round Clue for Newsroom:

This is AZTEC CAMERA and their song which appears in the music round at the Newsroom tonight. My friend Anna from Uni days used to rave on and on about Aztec Camera and I used to just think they were bland and never understood the infatuation. However, I do remember she used to go on about how handsome the singer (Roddy Frame) was and, looking now at this video, it’s like – OK fair enough, he’s a good-looking guy. So I don’t know how much my friend Anna really liked the music, maybe she just had the horn.
