I'm sitting in my office ruminating on my trip to Portland 20 years ago and my trip from Portland(?) in the not-too-distant future.
Is this song thematically tied to that?
No, no it's not.

Me: Who are the two little white girls in the picture? Allison and Andrea?Am I showing signs of some kind of declining mental state? Maybe.
Cuz: Are you joking? Yes!
Me: My inability to recognize people is clinically troubling. I actually figured it might be them because they would fit the profile, not because they in any way look like people I know.
Cuz: That's concerning - although when was the last time you saw either of them? Then again, I don't remember the last time I saw them either. Must be age-related 😉
Me: January 2015 after the Spandau Ballet reunion concert in San Francisco. Some college radio friends, some work friends and those two went to the Keith Harring exhibition and then had brunch while police shut down Market Street for a pro-life march and a corresponding pro-choice march. We had to cross on foot, leaving Andrea's car in the Tenderloin.
Cuz: Ok that's not nearly long enough for you to not make the connection. Also -- Spandau Ballet? For real??? Amazing.
Or, in other words, no. Totally not if this blog entry could be used as proof of a pre-existing medical condition. Not even a bit. If there were hot shirtless guys in the picture I could have told you what kind of car each arrived in.
But it did raise the question "if I enjoyed the Spandau Ballet show so much, why didn't I post any of their new songs as a song of the day?"
This should address that.

|Michael Cera / Brock Turner|
He was white. He was affluent. He was a man. He was an athlete. He was smart. He had good grades. He was an athlete. He was white. He was a man. He was white.
All of that, gone, because he technically did not rape a woman behind a dumpster.
Or as parents call it, "20 minutes of action."
Someone really needs to do something about all the drunk sluts forcing men to technically not rape them. Maybe get a ribbon of some color.
OMG, a regatta!!!!!!!!
Coming soon to, I don't know, let's say Starz.
