Boomers Die in Viceland
Vice Magazine is one of my favorite media guilty pleasures. They may produce photo shoots of dead rats and people sleeping in vomit, but they are always funny and clever. Their latest themed issue, WE HATE YOUR PARENTS, TOO is all about how whiny, self-involved and greedy baby boomers are. Sure it's mean and unfair but it's nice to see a glossy magazine take the piss out of the older generation for once. Especially when it takes on things like Vanity Fair's stupid story and essay contest "What's on the mind of America's Youth Today?" which they summarize as "We used to change the world by going to big parties, doing drugs, and fucking. All they do is go to big parties, do drugs, and fuck."
