I need Help from the Hip - what's cool to 13-year-old boys?
I promised to send a 13-yo boy a "cool" patch if he improved the language mechanics in his Instructable. But now I think he's actually going to do it; and I'm a 47-yo woman who (gasp!) only ever uses her cell phone to make and receive telephone calls by voice. I probably wouldn't know contemporary 13-yo cool if it walked up and bit me (although I suspect that, if that ever did happen, it would be kind of cool).
Any hipsters out there willing to help me find a clue?
(Edit: I haven't named the Thirteen-Year-Old In Question partly beacuse I don't want to single him out, but mostly because I'm hoping to get a general idea of what's cool in the tween/tween world. Does anyone still care about Harry Potter? Is HALO still big news? WOW? Are manga still hip? ...Etc., etc.)
