The Real World: In/Out
The new season of the Real World premiered this week, and good lord, did it make me feel old. I remember the first season of the Real World like it was yesterday, and, in the true mark of an old fogie, I am confident it was waaaaay better back in the day. Perhaps I can best quantify this with a classic In/Out chart (except you will have to use your imagination for the chart part, since Blogger doesn't support fancy shit like that):
Out: Angry black men
In: Fiery Latinas
Out: Republican Cuban virgins
In: Sheltered pale hairdresser virgins
Out: Throwing forks
In: Broken facial bones
Out: "If Puck lives in the house, Pedro does not live in the house."
In: "He's a typical frat guy--that's what I love about him."
Out: Aspiring artists
In: Hot tubs
Out: Straight girls learning about gay people
In: Straight girls making out with each other
Nostalgia is such an overwhelming thing. Get Granny a walker and a DVD of Real World: Season 1.
