95% of all music / writing is crap
Escape from this seems constant – once out often stay out
Couples play chess
But only slightly meaningful (Magnetic Fields reference!)
Silly sounds speak to insecurity
Unspecial but like, you know, hard to argue with
Look – party music!
Really annoying opening sound!
At least we all have cigarettes (ziggurats?).
When I was young my friend wrote “keep the apocalyptic instinct alive,” a line which I have cribbed repeatedly. I was once asked what it meant in an English class in a very awkward, show-up sense by the professor. I told her it was a feeling and she told me it had to be defined exactly. At the end of the year she invited the class to have a drink with her and I refused. Now I know: it means to be uneasy with ourselves.
A quite nice, but unimportant wee single.
