When I was growing up, pimp was always utilized in a derogatory fashion in the regions that I lived.
In college, neo-radical wannabes in their youthful zeal would speak of capitalism as a pimp/ho economic system while sporting their fresh Air Jordans. Now pimps and pimping and pimpology are supposedly things and ideologies to be admired. The fractional rationalization of bitches reformatted to be a term of endearment or empowerment prevails in the popular lexicon. Subsequently, I find no love in “Urban” or “ethnic” lingo (often a euphemism for socially Black caricature) which leaves me repeatedly interested in seeing doppleganger Hank Moody’s getting smashed in the face in mid-lilt of “mothafu***aasss” and beyond.
There is a lot of vile shit being passed off as progressive now days. It’s not that it’s a new event. This civilization has only been that in name only. For all of the technological advancement, the practical usage somedays feel like it is mainly about projectile social expression. “Here, I’m a dumb ass. Let me show you instantaneous documentation of that declaration!”
I had come across a paleontologist’s tumblr site yesterday. It was a mix of old ass science and modern social science through technology and opinion. I misplaced the link but I’ll eventually get around to updating this post with it. Dude’s positions were maybe 50 to 67% in accord with my thoughts but it really impressed me with the depth of thought and breadth of interests that holmes (lingo: L.A. circa 1977) brought forth and his concision of presentation. I read his blog for an hour which is HIGHLY unusual for me to be able to read anything on a monitor for that long. That which interests you can capture you.
Pimps don’t interest me. The premise of why so many have to turn language tricks rather than establishing a well-honed vocabulary is a sign of barbarism and not the dehydrated sophistication that most would pretend that their pop-up expression represents.
I declared it on the internet so it must be true. STAMP!!!
