What does Old Skool mean?

I wear sandals. Does it still count if you are a woman?

I read the Guardian from time to time as well. To be acceptable do I have to read the Sun? I'm sorry I just couldn't bring my self to do that. Its a rag with no actual news in it.

I don't know that I would want to live in the Chorlton you describe but I don't want to live in the one you advocate either which seems a very intolerant place
All this stuff about air kissing and the Lead Station. I myself have never been in the Lead Station. How is it you go in there to witness it's awfulness if you hate it so much?

I think most people who live in Chorlton wouldnt recognise most of the things you describe because they are just living their lives and not visiting bars and getting angry about vegetarians

I didnt say you read it. You might read the Guardian for all I know. I just wanted to know if I had to read it to be socially acceptable in your world.

Hhhmmm....do you think i read the guardian?

All you have to do to be acceptable to me is be more tolerant and less judgemental. and dont do that lefty thing of yanking out the old "he's a facist" or "he's an intolerant bigot"...etc..etc..

I dont like the mung bean life and you do. end of story. we can discuss our differences without trying to make each other feel like stupid intolerant bigoted rednecks for having views the other doesnt agree with...but so many of your type seem to do this very thing. You have no wish to accept me the way i am into your world and i have no wish to change you into anything other than what you are..i may not like it, but i have no desire to change it.

Only been in the Lead Station a few times(far too many), overpriced and full of air-kissing Guardian readers, most pubs in Chorlton are pretty good the smug phoneys tend to gravitate to the Bar which is a shame really because the beer is excellent. The place is full of braying vacuous fake "socialists" looking down their noses at anyone with a hint of a regional accent.

P.Webb you talk a lot of sense fella.

You both talk sanctimonious piffle. Cliché-ridden bollocks.

So they're all 'socialists' are they? How do you know? And so what if they are? Maybe they're tories or anarchists - their political persuasion is of course vitally important with regard to their right to go our for a drink in your beloved Chorlton.

'Vacuous', 'fake', 'smug'. Jesus, lads, how the f*ck do you know? Do you listen in on their conversations? And to think you're calling them for judging people with different accents! Delicious irony, don't you think?

Air-kissing? I've seen it once or twice and I've lived here for 14 years. You see what you want to see, my bitter friends.

I can imagine you two out for a drink together. Blimey, that'll be a barrel of laughs.[/i]

sidecar,

If I have a conversation in a bar, thats what it is. Not screaming at the top of my voice. You dont have a choice, you dont need to listen in to their conversations, that option has been taken from you unless you are deaf or a vacous fake enthralled in your own screaming conversation about how you met dear larry when you were on the set of hollyoaks....did i tell you i was an actor darrrrlling?

if you dont want to hear them, you go home or to town for a pint.

A "mung bean" is something i heard many years ago on The Young Ones. I have no desire to find out anything more about them (but they do sound funny).

"Old Skool" and "Back in the day" and some other choice (naff!) little phrases started to appear about ten years ago, when my generation hit 30...people who used to got the Hacienda (as did I) but are now a little bit past it and should know better.
They thought it might make them pass off as some sort of older and wiser raver. It doesnt. It makes them sound old and very silly trying despraltey to hang on to the youth that has long since left.

I enjoyed my youth and 20's but have no desire to stay there forever, I grew up and older.

If you hear anyone say "Old skool" chances are, the last time they saw 30 was on the back of a bus.

p.webb..... do you have a problem with actors, or just actor-wannabees.

If it's actors you dislike, may I suggest never watching a film or television ever again, it might save you stress.....

If it's wannabees that sink your boat, then you're not alone, especially loud, useless ones that "wanna be famous".

P.S. You seem to have a "getting your hands dirty" ethic... actors spend a great deal of their time in miserable situations for very little pay. Only the top 4% are rich.
