I grew up in the suburbs of Baltimore… My generation makes fun of the suburbs and the shopping malls, the TV commercials and the sitcoms that we grew up with – but they’re part of us too. So our ironic view is leavened with something like love. Though we couldn’t wait to get out of these places they are amazingly like comfort food for us. Having come from these completely uncool places we are not an never can be the urban sophisticates we read about, and neither are we rural specimens – stoic, self-sufficient, and relaxed – at ease and comfortable in the wild.
