if think about many famous actors, rockstars, poets, artists, musicians ..a lot of them come from broken homes, dysfunctional families. is their tragic upbringing part of what drives them to be cool and awesome? do they have more motivation to make a mark in this world than some schlub raised in the 'burbs their whole life?

I knew this kid in highschool who came from a broken home. you know, the typical tragic TV upbringing with sad violin music and all that shit. he had that dillon mckay swag, got all the best pussy, and pretended to mop and brood like he was so dejected. ran into him the other day and now he's got a good government job with a trophy wife. man **** that guy

i think you forgot to include the thousands that are in prisons. If they are so cool, take a trip to Pelican Bay and pal around with the 'cool' people there.
#9
Because when you are as uncool as TS is, everyone else is way cool by comparison.
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.
#10
Most of us come across as cool but are actually psychologically messed up and much less happy than well adjusted individuals.
#11
I remember reading a guitar world interview with Kerry and Jeff from SLAYER.

And that Jeff's dad used to grab him by the throat and threaten him,
and that Kerry's dad would beat him with a length of garden hose.

someday I hope to have kids and beat them into becoming the best thrash band ever

either way what i'm saying is they live some pretty interesting lives. a lot of them don't grow up to be working class shlubs; they have big dreams

So do people who went to Eton College, and they aren't all "cool".

I did get a lot of pussy in high school but now I just get a normal amount, so it evens out in the end.
#17
Nope.
We just appeal to the masses of misunderstood angsty pre-pubescent wannabes who don't have a life story to cry into a girl's shoulder.
#18
Cuz we know what uncool is, and know that it's uncool to be uncool, so we cool while we ununcool
#19
I'm from a pretty broken home and if I think about it a lot of people dislike me.


I'm also the exact opposite of "cool".

Because he's the hero The Pit deserves, but not the one it needs right now. So, we'll hunt him, because he can take it. Because he's not our hero. He's a silent guardian. A watchful protector. A Dark Anus.

I kind of think we need to put a muzzle on Killjoy. he's getting a bit obsessed with proving to this forum that he's one of those emotionally troubled, deep artist types.
I couldn't think of a thing that I hope tomorrow brings

I'm not even big on metal anymore, but I must agree with this.

New Slayer stuff is shit IMO, love the new Megadeth though

I'm not psychologist, psychiatrist, psychoanalyst or whatever but I think kids from broken homes have various personality outcomes due to the Post-traumatic stress related to a family breakup/fights/abuse etc.

1: Depression leads to self-destructive behaviour. EG: Being cheeky to teachers, drinking and smoking, starting fights, having no motivation in class. All of which is "cool"

2: They have insecurites but self-destructive behaviour leads them to do what they please and to hell with the consequences, this gives the impression of confidence. Which is hella cool.

3. They'll stick up for themselves, they may have a lot of anger and this will cause then to lash out on others. Defeating another by means of strength makes them feel better about themselves.

Stuff like that I reckon. I don't really blame bullies for their behaviour all the time, who am I to judge as I've had a very good life.

Still, there's plenty of people who've gone through shit and are as cool, intelligent and motivated as any of the rest of us.

"Put it down now, It's like you love that guitar more than me!"
In Which I replied.
"Well it has got two F-Holes!"

Exactly. TS is the embodiment of rock bottom.
