One thing I regret never experiencing as a kid was the Mohawk. Remember the first time you laid eyes on someone in your class walking with a high ridge of mousse spikes? I don't know about you, but I was secretly blown away. I loved that feeling, the slight punk-ness of it all when every nerd, cheerleader, jock, stoner, creepster, and teacher was staring at the kid through completely different paradigms. But a six-year-old with a slightly shocking racing stripe down the middle of his head is sort of saying to the world: "Hey world, guess what…I'm six, I have arrived, and I am gonna do things my way!" It's like a perfect extension of the punk ethic of the 1970′s, a sort of unconscious tribute to that beautiful notion of spirit over everything and anything else, pulled off by the only ones who could ever do it really right: the young.
