The Epitome of Vanity

Seriously, I know the Baby Boomers and the Gen Xer's were vain, but we NEVER named a fucking magazine after our generations.

Unless the owners of the magazines are savvy Boomers/X'ers who know to pander to the egos of the Millennials.

Say whatever you want (and judging by the article titles you will probably be right) but the Mahogany (her own codename) writer looks gorgeous in her profile photo...

'Zoomer' magazine in Canada is ALL about the Boomer generation and how wonderful they are.

Meh.... Some of the articles were intriguing, but, overall, it seems too NPR-ish and too hipster for my tastes....

I'm a millenial (agh, Christ, what's with their 'i's and stuff in their title?!) and the behaviours and attitudes of my generation sicken me. They're selfish when they should be forgiving and vice versa. How on earth did they end up this way? I want to retreat to the 'every new generation in a product of the last's' thesis, but I don't really see how it's relevant here!

The Yeonmi Park article looked promising, But "Sea Salt, Chocolate, and The Mast Brothers " Looked like a gay circle jerk and Amar Bakshi looked like the cult leader for a new generation of guileless dweebs. God Help pretty little Yeonmi with this lot of losers.

At least they didn't decorate the name even further...

Everyone seems to "need to" belong to or be associated with some demographic instead of being brave enough to simply be their own true individual self.

When the Boomers headed off to San Francisco and became hippies, and when Xers went to Austin to be slackers, in neither case did we expect to cash in on coolness. Heck getting rich was against the ethos. The only ones to truly cash in, on their passions, were the rather uncool tail end of the Boomers and vanguard of the Xers, with their EE and CS majors who rode the wave of the computer revolution of the late 70 thru the early 90s.
