If there’s one thing that could be said to be the driving motivation behind all the stuff I’ve ever written or thought or experienced in life, it’s that everything is fucking stupid. Perhaps that’s why this new should-be-a-meme on Vine speaks to me so directly. Stupid fucking lunch. Stupid fucking fair trade coffee. Stupid fucking skateboard. Stupid fucking parking ticket. Stupid fucking Springsteen. Stupid fucking mortality. Stupid fucking eternal damnation. Stupid fucking 2002 Toyota Camry. Stupid fucking…life.
Taken on their own, each one of these Vines, from @KingEvRock (whose band Thunderbloods we wrote about a while back), seem, well, fucking stupid, and disposable, hardly even a joke, really. But when you stack enough of them together it starts to build up toward a rhythm that encapsulates contemporary alienation and existential frustration. Stupid fucking over-explaining how jokes work.
