Tumblr gets a little condescending about Olds trying to join the club
This is as eye roll inducing as when people call 80 year old women “young lady” as if that doesn’t just highlight how OMG old they are. OH this pisses me off.
Let us be OLD. dear GOD let us be old. Even when we’re old we’re still alive.
HIGH CRIMES reader and longtime pal Zan (who I stole Zan’s name from, assuring Real Zan that Fiction Zan bears no resemblance to her) wrote tonight to point out some weird similarities that only her venn diagram of interests could draw a connection to.
From her email:
A little bit freaked out by the similarities between my new favorite baseball card of Ken Griffey Jr (picture attached) and the image of Zan on the final page of High Crimes #5… Is this where all the little pieces of my world collide?
There is an eerie similarity going on, but sadly no deep references to be found here. I’ve never actually asked Ibrahim, but I’m pretty sure he has just as much interest in baseball as myself (see: nil). Plus, if I was gonna sneak a baseball player in, it’d only be from two teams: the 86 Mets or the 89 Cubs.
Just because it didn’t happen on purpose doesn’t mean it’s not amazing.
#1026: r.e.m. - all i have to do is dream (1987)
on the very long and meticulously ranked list of everly brothers covers, which is kept in a locked safe behind a ragged couch somewhere in muhlenberg county, billie joe armstrong and norah jones’ new version of long time gone is miraculously above some (but not all) of dawn mccarthy and bonnie ‘prince’ billy’s recent everly album what the brothers sang. but don’t get too excited, green day fans: b.j.a./n.j. comes pages and pages after r.e.m.’s warm and worn all i have to do is dream, from the 1987 film athens, ga: inside/out.
I once had this taped off 120 Minutes and it was possibly my most watched video ever.
