Things that are cool - GO! Jazz. Fonzie. Ranch Doritos. Beatniks. Ray Bans. Cucumbers. Film Noir and Quentin Tarantino. My friend Todd. Chuck Taylors and Cuban-heeled boots... I'm not sure what makes certain things/people cool - or why we value it so highly. Is cool an attitude? An aesthetic? An empty descriptive? Subjective? All of these? None of these?
Keith Richards, also cool.
According to the super cool Keith Richards, "If you've gotta think about being cool, you ain't cool." In my case, I guess this statement is true. I mean, I'm a huge nerd, and here I am talking about cool, right? And not for the first time! (But by the way, when Keith makes this statement, isn't he thinking about being cool?)
