Don't you think there are so many emo kids, etc., at least partly because the suburban landscape can be so isolating (no sidewalks, everything too far apart)? I would start to feel depressed too if I felt cut off from everything.
Your kisses, sweeter than honey. But guess what, so is my money.
Yes suburbia does create a certain pathology that just feeds upon itself and its children. You're isolated from other people, not to mention reality itself. So thus in a such a world, whinning about the Gap pretty much is all your world is about. It's really sad.
I could not stand NYC when I was there. I felt very claustrophobic. There is no grass and walls all around, it's like being stuck in a hedge maze only uglier.
I am serious, I've been to a lot of American cities, and I do not think I have ever suffered such a strong revulsion to any cities like I have to New York. I mean, even though I will complain about Atlanta, that's mostly because so much of the architecture was stupid and not because of the structure of it itself.
I don't like how this is supposed to be "our" city. I'd choose a different one if I could, but I am not going to have much sway in picking a different city to represent the US when there are some 15 million people in that one.
This opinion may have been created from a brewing sinus infection, but I have the feeling it wasn't.
