Ultra Trendies by Psychedelic Warlord >>> a cDc publication.......1989 <<< -cDc- CULT OF THE DEAD COW -cDc- _______________________________________________________________________________ Trendy Death: The Next Generation.. I've discovered something sickening and vile. I've discovered a new creature: THE ULTRA TRENDY. I'm sure you remember the old trendies: "Yeah... I'm socially conscious... I listen to U2 and INXS. Yeah... that's me...." You remember their shallow lives, their social ladders, and the hollowness. Well friends, that was just the beginning. The new trendy, the ULTRA TRENDY, has invaded the ranks of the TRUE alternative scene, and it's a cancer that might cause the death of each and every scene across the nation. These new trendies can actually be found at the shows that you attend every so often. In fact, at your average punk/alternative show, the MAJORITY will be ultra trendies. Although an in-depth essay on these infiltrating trendies would probably be more beneficial and help you, I will, as I did in my last trendy file, just give you pointers in spotting them, and maybe some help in killing them. I know you don't wanna sit through 20, 10-line paragraphs describing this vile species. ^^^^^___^^^^^___^^^^^___^^^^^___^^^^^___^^^^^___^^^^^___^^^^^___^^^^^___^^^^^ xXx ULTRA TRENDIES know nothing about the alternative scene they profess to care about so much. One can often hear them state something along the lines of, "Yeah, I went drinking with Minor Threat last night. Their lead singer has the COOLEST mohawk." xXx ULTRA TRENDIES over play the "punk" lifestyle. They can recite everything Gary Oldman said in "Sid and Nancy". xXx ULTRA TRENDIES are usually the 'scene sluts' that many of the menfolk admire so. They show up, get drunk with the band, and tell the lead singer, "I really like your music. I think it's a lot like the Sex Pistols. Sooo... you wanna fuck?" xXx The only band these ULTRA TRENDIES have ever listened to, has been the Sex Pistols. Sid Vicious is a fucking GOD to these people. xXx ULTRA TRENDIES drive up to the shows in their mom's new sports car, and brag that they got "kicked out of the house." They then go on to add, "My mom is SUCH a bitch. I'm gonna fucking kill her." xXx ULTRA TRENDY females hook-up with violent boyfriends because, (yeah... you guessed it) "He's so much like Sid Vicious!" xXx If an ULTRA TRENDY is not dating a violent member of some "1977, Sex Pistols stuff kinda band..." then she is thrown out of the ULTRA TRENDY caste system, and must then go fake her way into the glam-rock circuit. xXx According to ULTRA TRENDIES, you must "skate or die," and if, "you don't skate, you're not punk!" xXx ULTRA TRENDY male: big black X's on his hands and he is snorting coke like Sid Vicious did. xXx ULTRA TRENDY: "Well... the reason I don't go in the pit, is... well... see, I uh... broke my leg... yeah, I broke my leg... and I'm not wearing a cast because... uh... because... because I'm tough! Yeah... I'm tough... I don't need a cast.... By the way, did you get the new Sex Pistols bootleg?" xXx Engage a suspected ULTRA TRENDY in conversation, and ask him or her what they think of Government Issue, and if he/she says, "I think they sound a lot like the Sex Pistols," you know that you got a live one on your hands. xXx You can spot an ULTRA TRENDY by the large 'A' (for ANARCHY, a concept they know nothing about) on his or her shoes. xXx ULTRA TRENDIES hang around in packs. If you see a bunch of people with shiny, leather jackets talking about how they'd like to be anti-christs and anarchists, you've hit a ULTRA TRENDY territory. xXx On very rare occasions (due to low mentality and creativity), ULTRA TRENDIES will put together a band. It'll usually be called something like 'The Anarchists', or, if a total lack of creativity comes on, they will name themselves 'The Sex Pistols.' ^^^^^___^^^^^___^^^^^___^^^^^___^^^^^___^^^^^___^^^^^___^^^^^___^^^^^___^^^^^ Well, now you've got your ULTRA TRENDY identified, so whaddya gonna do? ^^^^^___^^^^^___^^^^^___^^^^^___^^^^^___^^^^^___^^^^^___^^^^^___^^^^^___^^^^^ xXx Tell the ULTRA TRENDY that Sid Vicious is dead. xXx Tell the Nazi Skins in your area that this certain ULTRA TRENDY has AIDS. xXx Tell 'em that the new 'punk' thing to do is to play in the middle of the freeway. xXx Tell him/her that the Sex Pistols broke up 10 years ago. xXx To kill an ULTRA TRENDY female, show her a picture of what she'd look like without make-up. xXx Tell him or her that they're completely ugly. xXx Tell the ULTRA TRENDY that the new trend is to butt-fuck skinheads. xXx Tell the ULTRA TRENDY that punk went out of fashion 10 years ago. xXx Play Youth Brigade at 50 decibels ^^^^^___^^^^^___^^^^^___^^^^^___^^^^^___^^^^^___^^^^^___^^^^^___^^^^^___^^^^^ * Be wary of anyone that suddenly appears at shows with SeX pIStOLs t-shirts on, and screams, "Long live Sid!" Trendy I look into the steely blue ocean I see my reflection. As I look closer I notice something. I look almost transparent. As if I wasn't there. Like I wasn't an individual anymore. -Mike Stevens _ _ _____________________________________________________________________ /((___))\|The Convent..........619/475-6187 The Dead Zone.........214/522-5321 [ x x ] |Demon Roach Undrgrnd.806/794-4362 Greenpeace's IGB......916/673-8412 \ / |PURE NIHILISM..........new # soon Ripco.................312/528-5020 (' ') |Tequila Willy's GSC..209/526-3194 The Works.............617/861-8976 (U) |===================================================================== .ooM |(c)1989 cDc communications by Psychedelic Warlord. 2/6-09/30/89-#121 \_______/|All Rights Pissed Away.
