My kids are ready to kill me, as this is the song of the week: "Here Comes Your Man" by the Pixies.
I don't how I missed this song when it first came out. It's not like I wasn't into the alterna-hipster scene in the early '90s. In an appropriately ironic way, of course. You couldn't be an alterna-hipster in the early '90s without being appropriately ironic.
It was the movie "(500) Days of Summer" where I first heard it.
Paul and I got into a huge debate over that movie, which I thought was at least a little bit charming; it just irritated him. I'm not a huge fan of the whole cute Zooey Deschanel thing, undoubtedly because I recognize its fetching quality -- but I could never pull it off. But the movie itself was interesting and it reminded me of when I was the age of the people in the movie -- when "Here Comes Your Man" came out.
Paul finds ineffectual men irritating, and the male lead in this movie was as pathetic as most of the alterna-hipsters I was hanging with at that time of my life. So my nostalgia just annoyed him.
Perfect running weather: I am wasting it. Bah.
