i do declare today, a new day, a where we shall wear sneakers of new design. a day when our glasses may very well be rimless. a day when our various screen names will be x free, unless using words like "xylaphone" or "xenon". this is a treatise of the stoics. we shall NOT openly express emotion through song. we shall NOT die our hair the same universal black. we shall NOT wear studded belts, before i go hoodies, or centered lip rings. we shall wear our hair red, possibly with bangs, for we are the children of the revolution and we are not down with the scene.
