i'm just tired and i don't love you anymore

This is research for "Steel Monkey," believe it or not.



And an exercise in almost physically painful nostalgia. My god. I was... sixteen or seventeen. And one of my college boyfriends had hair just like John Linnell's, but darker and even more adorably floppy.

When I show you what else I looked up for research, I suspect you will understand why the video counts. Also, it's an amazingly beautiful photograph. I especially love the headless pigeon headdress.

The creepiest bit is that the song is so very thematically appropriate to the story. If I ever figure out what the story is about. I mean, I have the first line and the last line. Surely the rest of the narrative is implied?

I also love that he made accordions cool.

I can't speak for *every* boy, but I knew it. At 16, I thought David Byrne was the coolest person on the planet. I didn't get into Bowie until college (my HS years coincided with his Tin Machine period).

*g* Who doesn't owe something to Bowie?
Whoever it is, it's not me.
