Over Educated and Under Employed: The Fine Taste Emporium.
“A while back Dick, Barry and I agreed that what really matters is what you like, not what you are like. Books, records, films — these things matter. Call me shallow, it’s the fucking truth.” -High Fidelity
Kaks and Willa (the two fine editors of this fine, fine blog) are just two of the many who, by a combination of the disastrous economy and our equally disastrous idealism, find ourselves over-educated, over-ambitious, and distinctly under-employed. We’re pretty sure there are a lot of you out there just like us.
But we have something else in common. We feel confined. We feel trapped. We feel caught. Because, as far as we’re concerned, the interests box on our facebook page is just too damn small.
Since we define ourselves (and, incidentally, judge others) by what we like, we thought it was time to branch out. Time to bring our unproven taste and questionable interests to the public.
So here it is. The internet – summarized. Just for you.
Do we know everything cool that’s going on? Absolutely not. Are we professionals of any kind? No, if we were, we might convince someone to pay us.
Is there any good reason you should read what we have to say? Well, to be honest, no. You’ll note the subtitle is “not that you should care” and we stand by that.
All the same, we hope to prove you wrong. Because we’re pretty good at surfing the internet, and every once in a while, we find something pretty rad. And with so many bad websites out there, we feel that that is something worth sharing.
