|I’d rather dance

I danced with Erlend Øye. This should have been a highlight of this young artists life, but like so many other experiences of unequalled significance this incident too eluded any rattling off the cognitive cages. He really didn’t get into it and just moved around like a shy/gay/unhappy fourteen year old, hardly shaking the beauty that is his booty. He gave me a Läkerol though, and confided that he didn’t like the Peaches single…. I was on my way to the toilets, and he was just standing there, I realised that if I didn’t ask him than and there I would regret it forever… and that’s the good thing about it, I really feel brave and assertive.
When I got home I turned on the television and there was opera music on NRK. It made me remember when years ago when I was a pre-teen/child (way before the Kings of Convenience even existed). If I couldn’t go to sleep I turned on the radio on my walkman and listened to classical music, usually I’d fall asleep with the music on. Had forgotten about this... and now I wonder what would have happened if I had started listening actively to classical music instead of unpopular popular tunes. (the falling asleep with music on thing maybe one reason why I have tinitus today…)
With me being inspired and all I’m making a list off quintessential moments in my life that didn’t turn out like they should have:
Acquiring my first true friends
Singing in front of an audience for the first time
Losing my virginity
Going to a school where I could focus on my interests
Being told by a boy that he loved me for the first time
Being told by a boy that he loved me for the second time
Seeing Bowie live
My first real relationship
Seeing Bauhaus live
Falling in love when I thought I'd lost the ability
Talking to/dancing with Erlend Øye
I think that “telling a that boy I love him (and meaning it) for the first time“, and “having a baby” will end up on this list some day. Bah.
But I love to hate... it makes me feel important and free. I love Erlend Øye, he was my version of a childish boy band craze. I love KoC, they where the first band I ever got to see live at a real grown up show and they introduced me to Ladytron on the Versus album. Erlend Øye made it seem really cool to be a nerd and his band made my young love for Paul Simon(!) even stronger... But not even pop stars can make there breath smell good at will... (not that that’s important).
