Times are a’changing’

What do you notice about the picture that accompanies this article? Stupid frat boys

What is with hair these days? Guys are growing it out longer and longer and sometimes it can look… ok (note: the extreme popularity of Sanjaya last AI season) but most boys I see around look like total bums. I guess the new style is to look like you just woke up, rolled out of bed and went to class/work/your friend’s house but really, I think it’s making guys seems less reputable and overall pretty sleazy.

This article makes me wonder if my Elliot will ever do anything so stupid. The reporter says that the pledges were doing body slams into the furniture. I remember being drunk when we lived in the Woodgate house and we did “throw-downs”; everyone took on each other and wrestled but the only thing that ever got broken was a window via the corner of a large speaker, and even then, I think Chris just bumped into it. I don’t even think anyone was wrestling. There are ways to get rowdy and there are ways to destroy things. The key is to find balance. How do you teach a child that? By example? I want him to know that he should have fun with life but within reason. And by that I mean, wrecking a hotel room like that should be better left to rock stars and actors – people whose behavior is not necessarily merited sometimes.

Although, wouldn’t it be cool if Elliot became an awesome drummer in a band someday?

No, you’re probably right.
