More of the incredible journalistic stylings of Australian Rocker Beki Thomas.
If ya cool, ya cool.
I guess you can look cool..but not actually BE cool..which means ya not cool..you just LOOK cool…or you can LOOK like a total boring nerdy bastard and be VERY cool…if you are cool that is.
What makes someone cool?
Why is Fonzie cool? Is it the leather jacket or the way he bashes the jukebox to make it work?
The combo of both I think….and the way he combs his hair.
There’s this granny that hangs on Bedford Ave in Williamsburg…her name’s Leanora and she’s cooler than all the hipsters put together..she’s been there for 60 years..she props herself up on the bench outside El Biet cafe, done up to the nines and looking immaculate in her leopard print jacket, massive pink pearls, hot pink lippy, vintage (of course) stilettos…the works….she knows everyone on the strip and you’ll often see her with a little crowd of skinny jeaned, pointy shoed, guitar holding dudes and kooky indie queens around her while she tells stories of how she hasn’t had a man in 40 years!!…since her husband died and how she used to be a model and have we seen her photo up in the resturant around on Nth 9th??
Leanora and I became instant buddies..we just looked at eachother and went YEP.
I think people that tip well are cool (& sexy)
I think people that smile at you with their eyes when you walk past are cool.
I think people that are supportive of others are cool (especially if they have good hair)
I think Johnny Depp in Cry Baby is COOL.
I think, if you are already cool, then you get some cool tattoos, it makes you cooler.
I think if you admit that you love at least ONE Britney song you’re cool.
I think, if you let your best girlfriend borrow your brand spanking new dress to wear before you’ve even worn it, your cool.
I think if you don’t try too hard to be cool it makes you cooler….if you try TOO hard to be cool, you can look like a fool.
I think people who put hot chilli on stuff are just that bit cooler than people who can’t eat spicy food.
I think guys who aren’t afraid to enjoy a big, white, fluffy coconut, rum and pinapple cocktail with an umbrella in it are cool.
It doesn’t matter how old you are either….i saw the coolest little hip hop baby kickin’ back on the L train the other day with headphones on.
I think people who go to the store in NYC in their PJ’s n socks in the ad break to get food are cool…… WOW!! That means – according to me, I’m cool………..Oh…..but what if you slip over in the store coz your running and wearin’ socks???…..
