Re: Dear Swiss "Punk"...

Quote:
You, Swiss 'punk', are
a tosser, a toad, a toerag.
You are a measly muppet
of mediocre mayhem.
You are a puppet, a prat,
a pampered prince;
a paper tiger, a preening ponce,
a pretty, puffed up poseur...
Very poetic...



It's too bad anytime the punk image and whatever other subculture image gets abused by total wankers.

I have a lot of sympathy for punk. It's good to shock occasionally and when punk arrived it had a lot to kick against, politically and aesthetically.
Last year a Punk with a grand mohican and trying to look particularly mean was walking along the S-Bahn carriage where I was sitting with my family. He was with some similarly dressed companions.

My five year old took one look at him, pointed, and burst out in very loud laughter.

The Punk continued to look severe and was undoubtedly annoyed - even more so when all his companions also started laughing along with my son

Nah. He annoyed me. The nasty little **** threw a lit cigarette at me, which bounced off my jeans - the only unholed jeans I own, by the way - and onto my shoe.

I'm not one to look for trouble (had enough of that already, thank you very much), and had to run for my train, so I couldn't have done much even if I'd had a mind to, but I don't see why I should pretend that these ****s are anything better than louts and hooligans.

Scared? No. Bloody annoyed? Yes.

Well, I use to call them "Goldchüschtepunker" (Gold Coast Punk), normally that has some really nice effect...

A true gentleman would have simply agreed with one's chauffeur's suggestion that one reverse the Bentley over one.

Be that as it may, one is off here shortly to "hang out" with one's "mates".

Ahh, louts and hooligans; not Punks, then.

Fair enough.

Re: Dear Swiss "Punk"...

And I thought those punks hanging around in Stadelhofen were POME`s. At least DB shows obviously some of his xenophobia and prejudices.

No, silly! Product Of My Environment (i.e. Stadelhofen )

One man's
"The station building from 1894 was preserved and the surroundings were completely redone in a fancy twist of modern art, thus forming a striking combination of the new and the old"
is another mans
"Concrete'n'steel shlte, built twenty years after the rest of us realised how crap that style is."

Was it one of these 2 punks ? I usually see them hang around near Bauschänzli, begging for chips etc.

Of course he's Swiss.

Only an aborigine would be dozy enough to consider 'punk' an up-to-date and meaningful fashion.

At least the Balkan lads look like they belong in the 21st century.
There are a lot from Germany. I've been approached for a couple of francs a few times in a clip and clear high German accent.

One guy was in the Stadelhofen Softridge shop today stocking up on computer games, so they can't be that badly off.
