Bonerkiller: You Are An Art School Student And You Don't Know Who Jarvis Cocker Is

Maybe I've been spoiled by attending Brit-pop dance nights like Sorted for years, but I was stunned--nay, shocked!--when I met an art school student who didn't know who Jarvis Cocker was. Isn't that what all art school students do? Lay around, philosophize about aesthetic movements, and listen to Pulp? I could understand if you aren't a fan of his music, but to outright not know who he is is just bizarre.

He's never heard the song, "Common People?" What kind of art is he majoring in? Finger painting? Basket weaving? There's no excuse for this ignorance!

And, to add insult to injury, this poor excuse of an art student made fun of his name. "Jarvis Cocker? What? Is he a porn star? Jarvis just sounds gay. Cocker? Ha!"

No, dude. He is not a porn star. He is the singer of a band called Pulp. And you, my dear, are the worst art student I've ever met. Yuck.

I'm familiar with the band, but I was certainly never interested in them enough to know the singer's name. Although admittedly, I don't know if I even knew what Pulp was in the late 90s.
