To his friend...

This was so funny since this kid was probably 12 or 13 and his CBGB's shirt was so new that it still had the price tag on it.

  1. Maybe he hasn't taken his tag off since the CBGB festival in NY last July? (I'm reaching...)

  2. People still say "noob"? I thought that idiotic term died a long time ago.

  3. It's still pretty popular in gaming, wouldn't use it in real life though.

    1. It makes sense in gaming where an old vs new game is measured in weeks, not years, and the difference in experience directly affects how fun an opponent they are. Any attempt to apply that thinking to anything not competitive gaming however is pretty damn sketchy.

  4. The dude is just well ahead of the "wearing new t-shirts of old things" thing that'll explode in the Autumn/Winter 2013 collections. But you'll probably only hear about it August 2014. Noob.

    1. It was a club in New York, it was the birthplace of punk rock. Closed a few years ago. The full names is CBGB: OMFUG, which stands for Country Bluegrass Blues and Other Music from the Underground.

    2. "Other Music For Uplifting Gourmandizers" (consumer of music) not "other music form the underground"
      noob.

    3. Oh.. so it's not some new band.. it's actually an old punk club in NYC that is one of the origins of punk in the US. Didn't know the name, but I heard about it. heh. I think the UK argues they stared punk too.

      That makes it even funnier.

  11. Should I be glad I'm an old fart who doesn't know what a CBGB is?

  12. These things always make me think of a scene I witnessed on a bus in 2008. Four boys who I think was 10 or 12 years old were talking about Metallica, in compete agreement that they should've just packed up when Cliff Burton died.

    I wanted to both hug them and yell at them how the Black Album was gold. . .
