The J's

How clueless am I? When driving, I listen to Triple J, the youth-oriented radio station, and I enjoy hearing Jay and the Doctor in the mornings. But I just found out that they're both from Frenzal Rhomb! That made them about a hundred times more interesting! Did you know? I think everyone knew but me.

Not that I'm in Triple J's sought-after demographic. When I voted online in this year's Hottest 100, I had to click in my age bracket. The categories were quite fine-grained at the younger end, but less so as the scale went up. As I remember, I was in the rather broad 25 to 39 market. And after that? Forty to death. Yes, that's right. There's only one age category after forty! If you're 40 or 99, it's all the same to JJJ. You're in that 'decrepit, but still spry' demographic. It was the most profoundly depressing thing that had happened to me all day.

How do you maintain a youthful outlook without appearing pathetic? Um... by that I mean, I know how I do it; how do you? Yes, that's what I meant.
