All men at some point between the ages of 18 and 22 go through a Kerouac / Bukowski phase where they think they’re a tortured misunderstood outsider whose malaise and tiredness of the world is only matched with their desire to tell everyone how beautiful and sad it is.
Also a Henry Rollins phase usually a year or two after where they think they’re a misanthrope and that black coffee is a personality trait.
What other phases do people go through?
Is that a phase or a cycle? I’m somewhere between 4 and 1.
Keep seeing this photo everywhere and not understanding what’s significant about it
4 people dressed differently
Think im probably still in that phase deep down
Yeah they are dressed differently i suppose
… aren’t we all though???
Oh yeah that’s a shit one isn’t it.
Well you’ve got your Waning Gibbous, your Waxing Gibbous, your…
Oh I’m sorry, I thought you said Phases
Moon Go Through hahahhahaha! Silly me!
Yeah came here to say the pretentious early 20s. Funny that you’re peak snob when you know the least
Ultimately some people will eventually rach what they want to say after they finally fit ‘ultimately…’ into their speach.
Jigsaw and birdwatching phase
Everyone goes through the phase of thinking they’re too grown up for Looney Tunes before remembering that they’re really funny again sometime later in their lives.
A phase based on the band /subgenre that was popular as a teenager
nu rave phase
Oh and the Manics too
I actually did go through that and had his magic set but couldn’t do any of the tricks. I think I wanted it to grant me arcane powers but it just had string and stuff.
Oh yeah the idolising Ian Curtis phase. I did one of those.
