if my comrades and I were born 15 years earlier none of you would be here today, as natural selection dictates that we probably would have eaten you long ago, or driven you into hiding. you're all a valuable part of memphis' current ecosystem, but rest assured that yours was the last generation in which the babylon cafes and jay jays* of memphis' alternative youth culture would be allowed to proliferate or reach adulthood, spawn the java cabanas of today, or turn in to old creeps. Obviously not everything and everyone documented in this video is around today, but their legacy is felt. Never again! I've seen what life was like before me and I've been scared into doing whatever it takes to maintain order. Today's message of love will come not with glazed over smiling faces, open arms and drum circles, but with fire, crippling social anxiety, broken condoms, obsessive compulsiveness and drum circles.
*"jay jay" used here as a thing rather than a specific person, as I have never met "jay jay."
