I was watching the 90s channel on Pluto TV this evening and Weezer’s “Say It Ain’t So” video came on. It reminded me of high school, when someone might have asked me to explain myself–my purpose in the world, my ethos, my intentions, my soul–and I could have played a single four-minute song which more or less summed up everything I wanted to say in response. “Who am I? Well, have you heard ‘Fake Plastic Trees’? That’s me.”
At some point, though, you stop fantasizing about people asking you such questions.
