Rage Against Suburban Zombie-ism
Friday, August 15, 2008
Recently having watched Gleaming The Cube (1989) and writing this post reminded me of when J and I killed some time at this burger joint. J is a vegetarian and I think a bit of her died that day just by being there.
Anymeateater, after I scarfed down a greasy burger - J stuck to her morals by eating like a veggieburger or something - in walked these...people. It was difficult to explain, but we just kept staring at them.
There were 2 girls and 1 guy, all blonds. The guy was wearing a cream coloured, v-neck sweater, with 2 thick, navy blue stripes around the neckline, khaki shorts, & loafers with no socks. The girls were wearing the female equivalent of his outfit, i.e. either cashmere or angora, cable-knit sweaters with knee-length shorts, in pastel tones, including a strand of pearls around their necks.
At first, I thought that they were being ironic; paying tribute to an '80s preppy era OR they were models who just stepped off an early-Ralph Lauren Polo photo shoot or something. The look was eerily similar to Christian Slater's transformation in the above clip. It was just plain creepy!
In complete and utter confusion as to what exactly was off about these people, J and I froze, looked at each other, when the lightbulb simultaneously flicked on, and we mouthed, "They're AMERICAN!!!"
More specifically, I wonder if they were from Connecticut?
