Different? Listening to the monologue of Tom Foster.

Extracts from this document...


Different? (Listening) Rundown suburban park. In the course of the monologue, Tom Foster (a local teenager) alternates between leaning on a cracked football post and sitting on a dangerous-looking broken swing. The passage ends with Tom walking briskly off into the distance. These 'greebo's' sicken me 'goth chicks', if you're on about the women of that sort. I'm not sayin' that those are the only names they have. They've got loads of other names... Goths, grungers, rockers, skaters... they're all the same. They don't see it that way but, to be honest, who cares what they think?! They walk around in their black "hoodies" and their black jeans, even the blokes wear bracelets and nail-varnish! And don't get me started on those shoes they wear which are about 3 sizes too big. "Filthy scum get outta Brum'" that's what we say, 'Dan the man' made that one up a couple of years back and it's become our motto ever since... "and you can take your so called "music" with ya". I don't know how someone can put themselves through that... Torture! "Hail Satan", "slit your wrists", that's what they're into... each one's as bad as the next. They'd at least be bearable if they listened to some real tunes that didn't sound like the same thing over and over. 'Hard-House', 'Garage', 'Jungle... sheer wicked tunage. ...read more.


There is this one girl I'm seein', she's one of them but she ain't like the rest. She dresses like them and listens to their "music" but when I was with her the music sounded alright... and between you and me. I downloaded some of the ones we was listening to when I was with her to kinda reminisce bout bein' with her. I even found remix's of some of them by DJ Spooney and I found out that he grew up likin' so called "alternative rock" music. Oh er... I mean... this don't mean I'm getting into greebo music or nuthin, I only like five songs, honest! well... not includin' those remix's I was on about... Nuff said bout her music anyway... she's comin round mine tomorrow, I'll show her some of my tunes. I reckon she'll be wearin normal clothes within a week... anyways... I gotta go. Laters and respect! FADE Another teenager, somewhat different in appearance to Tom, during this monologue, he sits on the steps of a monument in the centre of town. There are many others on this monument that are dressed in the same manner as him. His name is Jack Rose. This monologue also ends with the subject walking away from the screenshot. Greasy Kevs... what can I say... scum of the earth. Otherwise known as scallies, fossers and the women... ...read more.


I was never into the whole wearin' make-up thing though, I'll leave that to the others, as for piercing's, my mom would kill me if I went home with a stud in my eyebrow... I reckon I'll leave them as well. As for the kevs, they'll be back, and there'll be loads of them, all from the same "crew", that's just their style, scared of fightin' their battles on fair terms... we'll be ready for 'em. I don't deny having one of them as one of my friends, and I ain't proud of it but he's probably my best friend and has been for ages, we were friends at primary school but he went to a different secondary school, and that's when he changed. If we weren't long-term friends then I don't reckon we'd be mates. Having said that though, he's changed some of my views. I used to hate football, all my other mates hate it...they say it's one of the things that make you a kev. That's why I ain't told them that I've got a season ticket for City with my scally mate. I enjoy it though... even though if I wear the clothes that I would normally wear, I'm told I would get "battered". I'm pretty sure that he's the only safe one of their sort out there... never really spoken to any others though... See ya round ... Rock on! FADE 1,456 Words ...read more.
