    Yep, a new one I'm hearing from some of the younger crowd. "Strad". Like others from different era's like; cool, neat-o, rad, boss, the bomb, groovy, bad, doozy, stud, tight, dope, and a host of others. This one, "Strad", is closest to "doozy", referring to the Dusenberg automobile, which everyone knows was indeed a "doozy". "Strad", referring to the violin, is likewise "the bomb"....because not one of the aforementioned "younger crowd" knew what a stradivarius was ;-}

    Here's one from my generation Lily ... "That's joofy" ... joofy can mean good or bad depending on the context you use it in ... 

    A little history. It was an accidentally coined term. A friend of mine was stoned and was trying to say goofy, and because of "impairment", it came out joofy .... it became a fun word to use ...
