I also know that little Matt is going to release a cover version of a song by Biffy Clyro - whoever she is - and he hopes to get to number one. Some people are all annoyed by this and have started an internet campaign to get the original version to number one instead as a victory for 'real music'.
I think all this is great I just wish I knew what they were all on about. As a cool down-with-the homies kinda dude I should really be keeping up with all the latest 911's, picking up the word on the street and slammin' some beats on ma ipod - Tuune! But the truth of the matter is that I am a little out of touch with popular cultural trends.
This was very apparent when I went to see The Messiah on Friday night and actually quite enjoyed it, changed times.
The question is, does it matter? If the trendy young things are into different things than I was at their age does that mean we've nothing to learn from one another? I hope not. I have the genuine privilege of spending a bit of time with some young people through stuff I do in church. I can honestly say that just because their taste in music is awful and their fashion sense is virtually non-existant doesn't mean they are a bunch of wasters. In fact quite the opposite. I learn a lot from their new outlook, their fresh approach to each other, their capacity for handling technological advances, their desire to work hard and their graciousness to accomodate people like me.

Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity.
