Finally finished Shampoo Planet

Finally finished Shampoo Planet, by Douglas Coupland, (the oh-now-so-extinct zeitgeist writer of the early 90s), and found myself enjoying it quite a bit. The Gen-X thing might be pass�, considering many of Coupland’s readers went on to make intenet cash in the mid to late 90s, but i found a strong identification with his characters. And while i can’t say that i am a 21-year-old Reagan youth, in the early 90s, in a very small, northwest town near a toxic Superfund site, growing up wiith Hippy parents, struggling with “making it” in corporate America… i can identify with the struggling thing. You’re not going to “make it” sitting around worrying about “making it”…

i am lucky to have a job designing in the “new media” realm. Cuts at Zefer, and Viant.
