One day you will be cool.
Music will set you free. True music is not just Rock & Roll, it chooses you, it lives in your car, or while walking alone, listening to your headphones or with the vast bridges or angelic choirs in your brains.
Its a place apart from the vast virtual world. No one can explain Rock & Roll, but its a voice that says, hear I am and fuck you if you can’t understand me, & then one of these people is going to save the world and that means that Rock & Roll can save the world.
It all comes down to the thing, the indefinable thing that people catch from music that will make you cool.
Its a Think piece.Rockstars, Groupies, Women. You’ll meet them all on your long journey to the middle.
You cannot make friends with the Rockstars. See friendship is the booze they feed you. They want you to get drunk & make you belong. They make you feel cool.
You are uncool.
Women will always be a problem for guys like you. Most of the great art in the world is about that very problem. Good looking people, they got no spine. Their art never lasts & they get all the girls. You’re smarter. Thats what great art is about, guilt and longing & love disguised as sex and sex disguised as love. But the only true currency in this bankrupt world is what you share with someone when your uncool.
Groupies sleep with Rockstars cause they want to be with someone famous. Then there are others who are there for the music. They are Bandaids.
They inspire the music they hear.
Don’t forget to live yourself the way you are , maybe you don’t see yourself the way you are.
So take a vacation from yourself.
Most of them don’t know what it is like to be a fan. How to truly love a silly piece of music or some band so much that it hurts.
DON’T take drugs.
Follow your dreams. Simon and Garfunkel is poetry and not about drugs and promiscuous sex.
Never take it seriously.
If you never take it seriously you never get hurt. If you never get hurt you will always have fun and if you ever get lonely just go to the record store and visit your friends.
