The "COOL" machine . Exorcising some childhood demons-one vig at a time. . A sculpture of my experience of school. It's not an "Another brick in the Wall" thing-I had no quarrel with the education system. I loved learning. No, it was the other kids, the bullies and the ever-present 'in' crowd, who conspired to bring the rest of us down to their mediocre level. The relentless "COOL" machine that turned innocent and unique kids into mindless, apathetic clones. Only the middle ground was acceptable; if you were dumb then they teased you and called you a retard. If you were smart they teased you and called you a square. Only the average was tolerated. And everyone had to be the same, like the same things, listen to the same music, wear the same clothes, even speak the same way. I vividly recall being forced to swear like all the other Grade 6 kids, something I wasn't comfortable with at the time (ironic becasuse I swear like a trooper now!) To avoid punishment I learned to be invisible and cowardly stopped trying too hard with my studies. Something I dearly regret. It occurs to me many of you guys are still at school. I'd like to think you aren't as timid as I was but if you are being bullied please speak to your parents, teachers and fellow classmates about it. Together as a group you are stronger than a single bully. And remember to be yourself, as hard as it is sometimes. Don't become a bland sheep like the rest. Although I have a funny feeling I'm preaching to the converted... This has been a Shannon Ocean public service announcement. Bright, enthuastic kids go in... Bland, moronic clones come out. The infernal apparatus of COOL. *Whack!!*
