everything is wrong with me

I can’t stop listening to this song. Also, I feel like this guy is me.

A friend of mine from LA works in the music business. And in her former job, she dealt often with Prince. And she would tell these horrible stories about what a lunatic and monster he was (nothing too crazy, but the usual star, “I demand this and I demand it now and just make it happen ten minutes ago” stuff).

And whenever she’d tell a new story, I’d say, “Dude, Prince hasn’t done shit since ‘Batdance.’ Where the fuck does this guy get off?”

And then I listen to this, and I realize, Oh. Yeah.

(By the way, this is my Friday night. I’m pretending that I’m “resting up” for Philly and my high school reunion tomorrow. But let’s be honest - there’s not much I’d rather be doing than listening to sexy slow jamz on a Friday night.)

(God, I miss my old life.)

Just sitting at home alone (wife on a business trip), wearing my boxers, playing my video games, listening to my R&B slow jams, feelin’ it and cursing myself for never dating a black chick. Normal Tuesday night stuff.
