MODERN ENGLISH: A TRENDY SLANG DICTIONARY by Jennifer Blowdryer
Last Gasp of San Francisco, 1986, First edition, 93 pp., 7 1/4" X 10", Softcover
Provides definition of terms from nightclub culture, the Punk, Cholo, Mod, Rasta, and skateboarding scenes as well as sex and drug slang.
“Having been a lounge Lizard for some years now, I believe it is the right time for a trendy dictionary to come out. Why should just boring old over-educated men over-document the punk scene ? I can do it too. Besides, this will enable me to talk to others who aren’t Lounge Lizards, on those semi-annual occasions when it's necessary. By this, I mean social workers, the cashier at Woolworths, and the bus driver. Now the only problem will be the substantial nightclub-induced hearing loss they may not share with me”. -Jennifer Blowdryer
