Another Saturday Run and Tainted Love

Ten mile run way out in railroad trail boonies, musical decisions and wild thoughts:

  • That’s it, I’ve had it, I’ve been wondering this for 40 some odd years and I’m no closer today than way back when  – what was he was doing with Julio down by the schoolyard and why was everyone so upset? I don’t get an answer to this it’s off the list because absent it I don’t really need all the images my imagination throws at me.
  • Moby’s Why Does My Heart Feel So Bad hit its midway point just as I was running behind a dog kennel – the barking meshed perfectly with the underbeat. It was at the 8 mile marker too, so the song was particularly apt. It stays, for now.
  •   The inanity and/or rudeness of bikers is directly in inverse proportion to the workout clothes they wear – with the exception of the total outliers like Speedo man last week and ‘Kim-Davis-Kathy Bates Misery Body Double-Carrie’s mom-Cockadoodle-Shaker-dress’ rider yesterday (both were fine). The ‘Breaking Away‘ I’m wearing two dozen logos but not getting paid a penny to do so crowd are universally fine to the tire impaired. It’s downhill from there with the guy in corduroy cutoffs taking the cake. By the way – if you’re not on your way to teach Political Science 101, what makes you wear an Oxford shirt on an 80 degree summer afternoon with a high chance of showers in the middle of nowhere? And yes, both of them were obnoxious to everyone else on the trail including squirrels.
  • Tainted Heart – it’s on the list for the race and it’s staying for the weird reason it reminds me of my favorite all time commercial:

The video was by Spike Jonze, it was banned from TV shortly after it aired because it was offensive to either/or trauma patients/nurses/surgeons/anesthesiologist/cardiac patients/the makers of EKG machines/guys named Richard. That was awhile back when people were really sensitive to things and insisted they be removed from the media.

  • At mile six it hit me that I didn’t even know Rick Perry was running this time around.
  • Nick Cave’s Brother My Cup is Empty, stays or goes depending on what stage it hits and whether or not I take it literally or metaphorically.
  • Mike Huckabee really believes that the Dredd Scott decision is still the law of the land and everybody just chooses to look the other way? I spent at least a mile and a half thinking of a test that should be given to everyone who decides there’s a burning need for them to be President.
