Oh, the Irony (Don't Ya Think?)

I Heart Irony So many layers. The whole abuse of irony for hipster cred. The "I heart." The fact that "I heart" drives me up the wall - ok, well, I don't care that much. But my irritation does amuse my friends who use the expression more wholeheartedly (ba dum bum!). I should probably have one, except who would implicitly understand all of these things if I wore the shirt?

Hmm, that shirt... it's like rain, on your wedding day.

the act of advertising ones' ironic credentials is at odds with being a practicing nihilist. sure, it's writ large: it's ironic irony. but why bother? who wants to be the over-achieving hipster?

to me, it's actually less work, easier, to just find some conviction that feels right and stick with it. courage, through slack.
