Yes geeky Justin is dead. Popularity of the stuff he loved saw to that. From this day forth I'm anorak Justin. But, what is an anorak? Well back in the Eighties an anorak was an adult, normally, male who enjoyed hobbies like trainspotting, the Parka coat was a favourite item of clothing for these chaps, they, and their pursuits, will never be considered cool or popular. There’s no, or very little, chance of their passions being exploited, of they themselves finding that money is ruining something they love. Today I embrace, proudly and erect, my inner anorak.
Obviously a great deal of anorak stuff needs purchasing to replace my former love of geek stuff, and of course a little research into the correct stuff to buy. Fortunately I can afford to completely change my life, being single and having some cash, not that I have to eat into my small amount of wealth, a lovely letter, accompanied by a cheque, arrived from the Inland Revenue, a tax rebate for over five hundred quid, the second rebate I've received in the past year, that money will allow me to purchase anorak style clothing, which will further isolate me from the masses. Individuality is important to me, pursuits, fashion, thought, way of life. I'd hate for anyone to think I'm anything like them. Because I certainly am not. Not the folk in this backwards, retarded area at least, and for that I am most grateful.
It's a shame geek passions are now so popular, I'm definitely annoyed, but at the same time happy to be embracing, and engaging, in pursuits considered so uncool I'll be looked upon as even weirder than I currently am.
Due to Dark Horse, eventually, losing the Star Wars license I shall attempt to purchase a heap of Dark Horse goodies, Marvel, and DC, can get bent. It’s a shame Dark Horse will lose the licensing to Lucasfilms product, over the years they’ve bashed out some really good Star Wars comic books. It stinks. It really does. But, then everything about Disney does. Stink that is.
Anorak fashion is quite presentable, I kinda like the style. And, I’ll defo not look like many folk in my local areas. Which will be nice.
But, what is anorak culture?
Well an anorak is overly intellectual, which I am, but without being clever. Obsessive and socially awkward. Man, that’s me for sure. I am so obsessive I am downright boring, and burdened with always being right. Like anoraks everywhere I’m unpopular, very, hated? Hopefully. I like obscure, non-mainstream past times, especially those non-mainstream fiction and fantasy based activities, and I definitely avoid mainstream activities, in fact the mainstream can get fucked.
Like any good anorak I’m shy, quirky and unattractive, and I cannot possibly follow sports, any sports, I don’t even understand sports, in fact as I understand it sports are for cunts, and I’m definitely not a cunt.
So it’s the world of anoraks for me, Dungeons and Dragons, taking more of an interest in the intellectual pursuits, being engrossed in science, even more than I am now.
It seems like the right path to take, to start a little re-invention, head towards a new (ish) way of life.
Do they sell Parka coats anywhere? Hmm, time I purchased, and constantly wore such an item, a cheap version naturally, nothing expensive, after all only the trendy spend a lot of cash on clothes. Anoraks would never consider such an action.
Long live Justin The Anorak, my World of Warcraft name, perhaps?
Yeah, I already like this, new, idea of being an anorak.
