I don’t mind if I’m incomprehensible

I'm Just Daft

Dear girl at the brewfest who was waiting for me to talk to you: I’m sorry.

I seriously thought you were with that guy who was walking near you, because, well, I was raised to be a pessimist. But then he split off in another direction. And you? You walked past me while delivering amazing eye contact. Then you looked over your shoulder. Back at me. Hesitating. (While Bobby telling me to talk to you and how money I am.)

So you are into guys who waste opportunities?

I’m an ass.

The original plan was to have Montana to pick me up in Portland on the way to Seattle for Daft Punk. But I had to go back to Corvallis. Because of all the things I could’ve forgotten, I forgot the tickets.

I’m an ass.

(That’s far better than showing up in Seattle without the tickets.)

But enough about my mistakes.

I need a new superlative for the Daft Punk show.

Thousands of people dancing and jumping to the same beats at earthquake* volume. Half of them landing on my feet.

It was LOUD. Kidney shaking visions blurring loud. I’m not exaggerating. During The Rapture’s First Gear, I noticed that the bass was blurring my vision.

It was one of the most physically demanding thing I’ve done. I’ve never sweat so much in my life. Or had so many other people’s sweat on me.

Montana: o/

Now here are some music that aren’t Daft Punk.

Camera Obscura – Super Trouper

Escort – All Through The Night

Pelle Carlberg – Clever Girls Like Clever Boys Much More Than Clever Boys Like Clever Girls

(The Real) Tuesday Weld – Bathtime In Clerkenwell

Tegan and Sara – Back in Your Head

The White Stripes – You Don’t Know What Love Is (You Just Do As You’re Told)

* Earthquake is now an adjective. I just made it so.
