Well, they also made a choice… not just to have a costume party (totally ok), announce the party (totally ok), hold a costume contest with “special guest” judges (totally ok), try to make the invite linkbait (totally ok) or attempt to make money off of a well-worn idea (totally ok)… but also to completely dashboard spam us to all hell and back with some third-grade shit about “cool kids” which was tiresome+alienating back then and is even more so now. As we all know, that crowd keeps NOTHING to themselves. I just feel badly for them that they’ve clearly never experienced the joy of purging the darkness in their souls. That’s the part that a lot of them simply just don’t get.
(I’m sure they totally understand the part where I’m saying, “hey, look, I gotta pay rent this month, so I ain’t putting $100 into a thrift store costume that gets used once and I’m not attending a party where I would be out-of-place wearing my normal rotation of Banana + Uniqlo, so have fun and I’ll see you at the Brooklyn mac & cheese bakeoff next month”)
