Finally! Douglas Rushkoff does it again. He offers a clear, engaging glimpse into the lives of teenagers that every youth pastor, parent and ministerial person who cares about teens should see.
A decade ago he gave Merchants of Cool to us. This has been used in youth ministry classes, theology and pop culture classes, workshops and referenced far and wide. As much fun as it is to laugh at the hair and clothes at this point, the categories covered make watching it today more than worth your time.
In case you missed it, a month ago, Generation Like was aired on PBS Frontline. Anyone who has had me in class knows I am a fan of PBS Frontline. While we once had to wait for the content, it is already available. So grab a cup of coffee, get comfy and you can legitimately watch a video for an hour an call it work. (If you’ve never seen Merchants of Cool, you get to watch 2 hours and call it work!)
