Is it time for a change of name?

Post by Mr Boozificator »

No provocation there, but considering how most people under thirty don't relate too much to what is being said in those pages, ain't we more like Old Fashioned Drunkards, or Old Style Drunkards?
I sometimes wonder.

makes sense seeing how everything on here and in the mag is very old skool, but we are that ol skool flaver in the modern world. we are the modern version. And i am under 30 and can relate, but then again i have an old soul.

It's cyclical. You can buy "modern fit" suits that are cut closer to how they were in the '60s.

Plus, it's really about how an old school drunk can survive in the modern, lame-ass world. Which is, of course, with a little help from our friends.

Coming from a 24 year old point of view: Old people (anyone over 40) drive too slow. That is all.
