on the coolness of things
Wed, Jul 28, 2010
Here’s an interesting take on “cool”. Not really sure whether to agree with the change of use of the word “cool” as I’ve never really used it. Cool for me has always been a Hollywood term but these days it more or less means “interesting for the next 5 secs”. A cool tweet, a cool video. Yes, that’s mildly interesting and I’ll completely forget about it in a minute or two. Cool means stop what you’re doing and waste some time watching a guy try to pull a caravan through an exit too small for it and see it get ripped off its chassis. LOL! or should that be ROTFL? Cool! Now for something completely different.
