Wow. That is a lot of awkward in one day.
I wasn't expecting another episode so soon! I have some hysterical late 90s photos of my close personal friend, PJ Tyler, that I thought would be entertaining to share. Oh well. I also have several from the 2000s, so it can wait.
This episode really recalls my teenagedom, both in embarrassing and nostalgic kind of ways. Let it be known that I received the TLC *tape* for my thirteenth birthday or something.
High School is STILL all about extremes. If I can offer my opinion, as I am now an observer from the inside-- The kids want to be "different" JUST LIKE EVERYONE ELSE. I think that actually translates to "I want to be the same as everyone, only BETTER." Sort of like, "I want to be Emo, but the best, most different Emo."
Teenagers. Why.
I like all the suggestions for future episodes. I think Brutus should be a guest on the Covers show. He seems to know a lot about them.
As always, well done, PJs.

So glad that you read my suggestion to beef up the impersonations. Alissa was bang on with the "Hope is EMO" script. I have been thinking about chalk ever since.

It does not seen to matter what generation in which we grow up, most teenagers strive, often desperately, to create identities of their own. Conformance is only among close friends. And friendships frequently are defined not only by ideals, but by the music they listen to. It may be punk versus rap in one era, but twenty-five years earlier it was folk versus acid rock. As teenagers grow older with greater self-confidence they develop an appreciation for a wider range of music styles - especially polkas.

I found the photographs of episode 33 and the posting of August 30 of equal scariness. [ Just jokin', T.]

Can hardly wait to hear the next edition.
