Tales Of Mere Existence "The Loner"

A thoroughly unromantic look at a romantic character type.-YT

Haha, that sounds like me in high school. I was sort of friends with the straight-edge kids who were on the football & lacrosse team (ie fucking jocks). Friends with the cheesy fatwreck punk kids with their intolerable immaturities. Friends with the lo-fi art rock kids, the diy hardcore kids, the loner "abstract artists", the rich brats & golfing kids, the video game geeks, the film nerds and their Videodrome & Holy Mountain... but more importantly I stuck to myself and ended up with a bunch of beautiful weirdo loner babes.

Ironically, for Lev and I since we live in SF we may be loners but it is goddamned impossible to be alone here. Even loners make friends here because everyone in this town is pretty damn weird. The whole loner thing just doesn't work as an adult - but when your a kid it works charms if you're actually into interesting things that no one knows about. If you can't make friends - you're not really alone but it would be pretty damn emotionally isolating - since there are only people & buildings. It was difficult to get used to at first and well - I don't really remember what happened because I spent the next 8 years drinking my way to sociability. Well, until I moved to what I call the only slice of "Appalachia" on Bernal Heights.


What he really seems to have missed is that every INTELLIGENT person felt like that in high school. It's the morons who stood around gabbing.

Prove me wrong. How many people did YOU know that could flit back and forth talking with everyone that weren't airheads.
