May just be in my area, but I have seen an increase in the Randy Johnson look, the mullet in combination with a fitted hat. That, or just a straight mullet has really been picked up for a bit

u/ohlookahipster 11d ago

He colabs with both freshman and established artists and his release schedule has stayed constant.

Also theres an adage in hip hop that black girls dance to the beat whereas white girls dance to the lyrics. Drake has managed to capture both audiences with catchy lyrics and instrumentals.

He’s also plays the room in the rap game. He doesn’t bind himself to a particular region which has its own themes and motifs (LA, Dirty South, Chicago, etc). Instead he just floats.

I don’t really care for him, but he’s popular among a huge range of demographics for a reason.

No one's saying they shouldn't have these broccoli cuts and instead they should rock the side swept emo cut, they're saying "you look dumb" just like every generation has.

Teenagers have always, always styled themselves like idiots. There's nothing wrong with it - it's an attempt to distinguish themselves from older generations before they've developed good taste. We all did it, our kids will do it, and it's fine. Ya just look like dinguses and we're all gonna have some fun while you do it.

32

u/DakkaDakka24 10d ago

Fully agreed with all of this. Uptight millennials acting like we didn't have JNCOs, frosted tips, and puka shell necklaces are ridiculous. The job of teenagers is to be annoying and stupid, we're just lucky that our generation largely went through that already before social media became as much of a thing as it is. I would die if there were still facebook pictures of me, dressed in what I thought was cool at 15.

Where does the broccoli haircut come from? First I ever saw of it was on the worst guys on Love Island UK. just screams “fuckboy with no impulse control or attention span”

Edit: didnt expect to spark a discussion with this. Mostly helpful answers (basically some celebrity did it so now we all have to do it, it seems). There’s a guy at my gym who looks exactly like the stock image in the post. Haircut makes him look 10 years old somehow. I got called broccoli head and q-tip back in the day because I’d brush the curl out into a frizzy white boy afro. Best thing to do with curls imo is to let them grow and keep them healthy. I was a convincing Al Yankovic for Halloween last year.

So many guys had the aftermentioned cut, so when everybody guy grew out his hair like that at the same time it became "in style."

Zoomer slang is just a combination of internet acronyms and black slang that's been around for decades, for the most part. The slang they use is almost entirely not unique to their generation.

Yeah this is basically just a “what’s going on right now” type of thing lol. Kids using current technology, listening to current music, using current social media…” lol

I think it comes across as awkward because most of what's called "zoomers slang" is actually just varying degrees of butchered AAVE (African-American Vernacular English)

u/Syd_Syd34 11d ago

Yup. And half of them don’t use it right anyway lol

I mean, AAVE has produced a lot of slang that was adopted by the the broader culture since at least the Jazz Age. "Cool" being perhaps the most notable example. And there have been examples for every generation since too.

How come their hobby is "gym" but they're all twigs. All they do is hoard the bench rack for 45 mins and leave

Figured out the exercise is good, hasn’t figured out that nutrition is where they’ll actually make progress.

u/Teeshirtandshortsguy 11d ago

Yep. I was this kid like 10 years ago.

A diet of Pop Tarts, Monster, and protein shakes, gets like 4 hours of sleep every night, spends 2 hours every day at the gym.

Bonus points if they spend 1.5 of those hours on their phone or talking to their friends.

I can't blame them for being dumb, but each of these kids looks like that Dobby in a bro tank meme.

Could be bad training, bad diet, bad genetics, or a mix of the 3

u/C4yourshelf 11d ago

Probably just bad diet. Starter gains are pretty easy don't really need a good training regime or good genetics

Just a reminder that the oldest Zoomers are about 26 by now, a 15 year old borders on Gen Alpha.

u/sapphires- 11d ago

I'm 21 and my job has me working with 12-14 year olds. ("Gen Alpha.") Surprisingly they still feel very in line with Gen Z. Like yesterday I had a whole ass conversation with one of them about webtoons/comics and it made perfect sense to the both of us.

u/Spoonofdarkness 11d ago

There's a lot of noise in regards to how different each generation is, but there's a good deal of overlap between adjacent generations.

As a millennial, I appreciate my GenX and Zoomer friends. They're quite different from each other, but they're all good people.

u/-MagicSoda- 11d ago edited 10d ago

Gen Alpha is okay in my book as someone who is nearly 20. I volunteer at community events to watch over kids and they’re all a bright and accepting bunch.

They all also seem to like Minecraft as I did growing up, and that’s awesome.

Honestly most of this stuff isn't specific to zoomers but largely the current high school/college aged kids.
