There’s nothing quite like a trendy skateboarding and skateboarding culture magazine hailing from the sun-soaked streets of California to make us feel astonishingly old and tragically uncool. Skating is something that just works in America – you have the glorious sunny weather, laid back attitudes, large areas and amounts of space in which to skateboard. It doesn’t really work under grey skies in Milton Keynes.
And, unfortunately, Americans are just cooler than Brits. There, we said it. It is an unfortunate but unarguably true situation. There is something in the British mindset that means that as soon as we find ourselves around Americans, no matter how cool we feel when we’re at home we turn into ridiculously posh sounding caricatures of Englishmen and women. Perhaps it’s that we’re hyper self-aware, totally in possession of the knowledge of what we’re doing, maybe we spend too much time in our own heads or maybe we just have a bad habit of trying to explain everything.
Of course, this isn’t true for everyone – doubtless there are many Brits who are undeniably cooler than their counterparts in the states. To best highlight the issue, however, grab a copy of ‘A Bit of Fry and Laurie’ or the third season of Blackadder, watch it and then watch a season of House, and compare how cool Hugh Laurie is when being British and when pretending to be American – it’s an unavoidable inevitability.
