I ALWAYS FEEL SO WOEFULLY INADEQUATE WHENEVER I WATCH "SKINS"
this sucks. i was gonna show you guys the first mini episode of Skins season 6, a youtube clip did exist of it, i know 'cause i watched it awhile back, but it was taken down and now there doesn't seem to be a way to see it unless you live in the UK. i want to live in the UK someday, but that doesn't help now. well, the best i could do was this behind-the-scenes link talking 'bout goth gash and the rest. if you do ever get a chance to see the actual minisode, you must, your inner being depends on it:

this 'sode had a funny opening scene, with Alo jacking off to a motherly pic and Mini declaring with her usual uncensoredness: "this is reaching serial killer level, Alo." she also commented on how she didn't want to bring Alo along with her and Liv because his spunk almost got in her way.
SEE, that's what i needed, i never had that growing up in high school, where you're a part of a group of six people, preferably three girls and three boys to make the math fair, who all look out for each other, have sex with each other in turns, and protect each other from stupid teachers and clueless parents. now i know that the SKINS world is pure fantasy, it's a place where the teenagers have all the answers, or at least they'd like to think so, and all the adults in this world are hopelessly out-of-date and buffoonish in their takes on modern life for a youth, either that or the parents are too busy fucking loudly (fucking so loudly the kids always have to leave their houses) and completely in their own world to empathize with their children.
i just wonder how i would have turned out if i had been a part of a magical 6-person group like this. as you can imagine, i was pretty much a loner most days. i just wonder if i had had a support system which would have called me out on my bullshit at every turn, comforted me when i needed a sympathy fuck, and truly cared about my blown-out-of-proportion adolescent problems, i might not have become that most dismal of caricatures in modern society: the blog writer.
this 6-person group who defends themselves against all other evil people, who live in their bubble of sex, love, and a united front, this phenomenon has been beautifully displayed in a film called NORMAL ADOLESCENT BEHAVIOR, or HAVOC 2. remember the movie HAVOC, all that titillating sex from Anne Hathaway the former prim and proper Princess from the Diaries? yeah, yeah, me, too ;)
CLICK HERE FOR THE TRAILER...OH, MAN, SORRY, BUT ONCE AGAIN, IT LOOKS LIKE YOU'LL HAVE TO SIGN UP FOR YOUTUBE TO SEE IT. LOTS OF ROADBLOCKS TODAY...
smart kids having sex...hey, i wish...that for myself.
so, look back at your high school days. were you ever a part of a group like this, a 3-female/3-male gang of sorts who only had orgies within the group, and helped each other out with their english assignments, where real one-on-one relationships proved difficult both within and without the bubble? how did it ultimately affect you, was it a good or bad experience in the end? if not personally a part, did you at least see this phenomenon going on at your school, did you see a certain group of 6 people always loitering in the halls at the same time?
