Twenty years too old, or twenty years too young

Random thoughts on a #66 bus, a ride into town, via the medium of song.

Gotta spend some time. The potential of you and me. Can you see it? Books to be read. Easily. Go back to Seattle. A mirrored view. It's all about perspective. Four minutes and thirty three seconds is the start. Grow a beard. Do not be afraid to shout her name loudly. Spend some time, love. Possession of a heart is not always a crime. Gotta spend some time. You will find love, in the arms of those around you, those who are at a distance. Wear your glasses, two for the price of one, love. Outside your window, lovers roam. Languages can be learnt. Twenty years is not a lifetime. And Ben is pretty fucking hot these days. Enough. It can never be enough, my love. This rejection. Advances no more. Gotta spend some time... x

And, yes, the votes are all in and have been counted. The winner of the most played-to-death D. Cab song is written all over the turned-on amps...

  1. This is all very well except for the bit about the beard.

  3. There is too much facial hair in Glasgow. Look around Colin, every hipster is trying to grow a bloody beard. Next you will be wearing checked shirts and have your jeans half way down your arse.

  4. Surely it depends on the nature and ideology of the beard, Drew. I'm thinking some Trotskyist or Leninist whiskers might suit Comrade Clark well...

  5. Jazz beard - nothing above the line of the chin, plenty going on underneath. Although remember, the only reason women get their belly buttons pierce is because they can't look stupid by growing a goatee. On the whole.

  6. No ponytail. Just. No. I don't own a checked shirt (anymore). I never will again. My jeans fit snug, with a belt. I'll give the growth a couple of weeks, see how it nurtures. Might look into a belly button piercing, actually... get one with a hammer/sickle design. Pravda! ;)

  7. I wonder how much work it would take to grow and crop hammer and sickle sideburns?

  8. That sounds like far too much hard work for me. Plus, I think Kim Jong-Un has his wee Marxist <3 set for that look, what with his sudden leap to the throne of N Korean Worker Powah. Rock on, Article 22 Party Regulation changes.
