We’re too clever for our own good. Who, you ask? Why us! Children of the 80’s and 90’s who grew up more placated than any previous generation. Where a kid could be a kid, I don’t wanna grow up, Kidz rule, etc. This was the marketing of our youth that we mistook and continue to mistake for fond nostalgia fodder. In essence, we were lied to over the course of a decade about what matters, what is awesome, and what life was really like and a whole lot of useless plastic was sold and at our poor parents expense.
