They have suffocated our media. They have contributed to the general malaise that has infected and affected our way of life and how we deal with one another. They have ruined our culture and promoted, willingly, I may add, the destruction of basic morals and manners.
Fuck the millennials.
They don't read anymore. They engross in mostly inane chit-chat on their shitty little smart phones engaged in universal verbal nothingness. And we're supposedly supposed to cater to these assholes? Fuck 'em. All of them.
They've become advertiser's dreams. Really now? Why. Because they spend money on computers and go to the movies. I'm 53 and went to pay my 15 bucks and see the new James Bond movie. I even bought popcorn and a diet coke. Thirty bucks. What a dinosaur I am, go figure.
Millennials have invaded our TV/Radio business. Some of them are actually pretty good at their craft but the majority are piss-poor amateurs who couldn't ad-lib their way out of a paper bag. I especially like the shitheads who can't pronounce the correct street names locally. I count the number of times the morons--male and female alike--who uttered out, Doyle Avenue and not Doyle Drive. Or the turd heads who referred to the huge Sutro Mountain Tower and not Sutro Tower. Idiots.
They have ruined our most basic passion of having a good dinner out by schlepping out their crappy little smart-ass phones at classy restaurants. God forbid they couldn't put away these horrible machines for five minutes.
"Oh, Rich, you're just angry --get in with the times! Move on to the future, dude!" What future? We're supposed to be cozying up to this shit? Excuse me, I'm going back in time and to the past. A lot healthier era where people had manners; people wouldn't pull out phones in a classy restaurant; people wouldn't fuck up successful radio and TV stations and hire folks who had talent; people wouldn't tweet out some bullshit and offer it up as "my take" and consider it literature.
You millennials, thanks for fucking up our culture. Thanks for contributing to the death of newspapers. Thanks for destroying actual conversation--remember that? Before, conversation was natural. A cup of coffee in the morning and conversing at the local Starbucks. Now, conversation has become sort of a felony --we can no longer talk, we text, tweet, Facebook, gees what a great country we are, and you, fucked-up millennials, all made it possible.
I'm not going to cater to the miscreants. And dare I catch any of you assholes wrecking my occasional dinner out by your rude-ass cell phone. There's a place in NY--PJ Clarke's --where they confiscate shitty little mobile phone and put them in a jar when you arrive. When you're done with dinner and drinks, you can get your phone back. Too bad every decent restaurant in this city couldn't apply the same rules; maybe they're afraid some of the tattooed morons (hipsters) won't patronize their place. Then again, do hipsters/millennials actually eat? Or do they all just sip soy milk and eat tofu. I've never seen a millennial eat a steak or fried chicken. And for a group of people who preach health and happiness they say will bring you harmony, I've never seen so many of these creeps with a cold! Go figure.
So, again, while you all try to cater to these mutants I'm sticking to yesterday. I bought the print edition of the NY Times (which I do almost daily); I'm going to have a couple of dry martinis (stirred, not shaken); and forgo some shitty concoction like Red Bull and vodka; I'm going to the bar and jukebox and listen to some Sinatra and Dave Brubeck, maybe a few Lou Rawls tunes and some old Janet Jackson. You fucking hipsters can have all the Maroon Five your heart desires. And take that asshole, Kanye West with you.
Fuck the millennials. They have no decorum and style. They are the human strip malls of society. They have zero taste. We humans appreciate culture and good food and wine and good movies and the like; they think spending the night freezing their ass off so they can be the first in line to buy an IPhone is hip and cool. I say they are fucking idiots. These are the people who think American Idol is a documentary. This is what Madison Avenue wants to attract? And I'm supposed to be jealous of this? What a sham, what a disaster. And we wonder why our country is going downhill.
Like I said, and I'll say it again and again: Fuck the millennials.
