The Almost Generation

We make new strides in fashion, almost.

We make unheard of music, almost.

We make never-been-seen art, almost.

We write experimental poetry, almost.

We are the Almost Generation, continually reaching for something that has never been and never quite getting there. 

We are the Almost Generation, continually striving for all types of equality and fairness, but only almost getting there.

"The Almost Generation" expresses the hope and despair of our current age. It's an awkward age, it's a vulgar age, it's an almost age.

I'm almost sorry for this post, but not quite.

Every generation is an almost generation, that's the point of having ideals, it gives your children something to do aside from watch Ocean's Thirteen, Fourteen, and Fifteen.

BTW, I have just realized that when Matt Damon puts on a fake nose in Ocean's Thirteen it makes him look like TS Eliot, check for youself

P.S. There's a lot of truth in what you said.

So... fuck. I was almost right.
