"This is an obituary for the generation gap." -- I've been putting off reading this New York magazine article on "grups" because a) the whole concept annoys the hell out of me but also b) I might be one, so here ya go. Like any other sociological trend, it's easy to mock the "yupsters" with their $200 jeans and dimestore superiority complex, neatly categorizing myself and my friends as so much more authentic and not the type to ever buy a cashmere hoodie, for godssakes. But . . . I'm sure there are plenty of people my age who think my DINK lifestyle is just as ludicrous, who think my TiVo is just as unheard of as one of these. So it's all relative.
