new slang

everyone knows (and uses) 'totes' for totally. like, totes!

BUT there are other new and intriguing slang forms in the new issue of vice:

'stoops' stands in for stupid. a grand mal stupid (my term, not theirs) event gets classified as 'stoops du jour'.

also: 'Gnarly' is back! BUT not in that form, of course. 'Gnarls', 'Gnarly Lama', and 'Gnarls in Charge' are fine, though 'Gnarls Barkley' is evidently overdone and pretty passé, as things go.

there's more, but you should either just read the issue itself, or wait for my slangy girly breakdowns, coming to an in-person near you.

in other news: I now want a drum kit really bad.
