    “…gnarly…”? Do peeps still say ‘gnarly’?

    Oh, and one of your tags is misspelled. (She said, checking her post for her own misspellings.)

    P.S. Just for a change of pace, I messed up a link tag rather than the italics.

    Since there’s no other reason to be posting this one, I assumed it was here as “And speaking of pathologists…”

    Yeah, what Chakolate said.

    “Gnarly” is about the same vintage as grunge. Though Jeremy still has the grunge look, so maybe it’s a retro thing. (Actually, I assume Jeremy dresses that way because he was created back when teens dressed that way and was never updated.)

    “‘Gnarly’ is about the same vintage as grunge.”

    Gnarly is early 80’s, grunge is early 90’s. More precisely, since there have always been teenagers who look grunge, and there will always be teenagers who look grunge, grunge’s popularity exploded in the early 90’s.

    James P: shows that even when I was a teen I couldn’t keep track of teen slang.

    “shows that even when I was a teen I couldn’t keep track of teen slang.”

    Which is why we have pop culture to immortalize it.
    “gnarly” hit popular awareness in a big way with one Jeff Spicoli in “Fast Times at Ridgmont High”.

    Grunge, as a stylistic choice, peaked with the rise of Nirvana.

    I thought that gnarly was surfer slang - I think in “fast times at Ridgemont high” perhaps?
