And I’m glad I did and I’m glad I was wrong, because there’s a time in your life when you should feel ridiculous things ridiculously strongly, and there is nothing in the world more beautiful than realizing one day that your entire perspective on everything changed and you’re not even sure how it happened or why.The sound is so perfectly ’90s, so embodying of a time when women were bossing up so tough you could even trash-talk on acoustic guitars (! Addicted To Noise.) Said backlash doesn’t need to be recounted in much detail here.

Even if you don’t already know it, you already know it (basically, sex appeal=no talent). Suffice to say their were a number of young ladies whom I liked, and who seemed to like me, and then they quickly realized that I was the most awkward person on the planet. If only.)
