It had to happen eventually

You know how I know I'm officially a grown up? I can think of no context in which I would be willing to wear my "smoke crack and worship satan" t-shirt out of the house anymore. I don't think I have in at least 8 years. I'm just worried I'll seriously offend someone. I used to not care if they didn't get the joke, but now it seems unkind somehow. I seem to have lost the desire to freak the mundanes. I want to make them tea instead. Maybe a nice pan of brownies.

I think this is a good thing, but it does make me a little wistful sometimes.

Oh, I don't know...I think such a statement, "smoke crack and worship satan" is really a non issue in this day and age (yeah, like it was THAT long ago). It was edgy and in your face maybe twelve years ago, but then you'ld see that brand of humor every week on "Southpark", now...hell, you can see that brand of humor on "The Daily Show". I mean, cripes, the stuff they come up with on "Drawn Together" sometimes gives me the shivers. I think the masses are desensitized to most of the stuff that used to be "shocking".
(my friend, Bill, once had an idea for a t-shirt that said, "I *heart* Jesus" on the front, and then said, "In a prison kinda way" on the back. Now THAT's super-creepy-offensive, and something I would'nt wear for a mountain of money...)
...and I totally agree. I thought it said pink as well.

Well, yeah. I agree that a lot of people are desensitized to a large extent. But there are always sme folks who never watch Comedy Central, and who do indeed find that sort of thing upsetting. Mind you, I don't want to hang out with those people, but neither do I want to make them unhappy on purpose.

Say, did you ever get to see the Venture Brothers icons I made? You'd commented that you liked the Molotov one in Beth's LJ. They are here, for the taking: http://fenriss.livejournal.com/142154.html
