In addition to almost literally everything, I miss Monday night hoops in Boston. Not exactly a “place” place, but it does have a few physical places around town. And it certainly has a physical place in my heart. It kind of represented everything I long for now: Movement and heart-pumping exercise; a time every week to hang with some of my best friends; something to look forward to; somewhere out of the house I could be; an escape from real life; a place to have different kinds of conversations than my normal set of topics; a fairly structured environment and a regularly scheduled activity; a place to meet new people. The list goes on. Fun times. Can’t wait to be back.

Among the nonmusical object samples: the ol ring-on-the-water-glass, and a pump of albuterol. Why, you ask, did I, an asthmatic, waste a precious hit of inhaler during an outbreak of a virus that goes straight for the lungs? For the love of the game. For the love of the game.

For best listening experience, listen on an OontZAngle Bluetooth shower speaker.

Lyrics:

Gimme dat, C’mon

I found out bout that run with everyone on a Monday

You forget bout that, what you done, til it’s Sunday

No-one hangs out like we used to when I was 14

I’d trade a mask or two for a game now, cuz they’re done for

So body up and talk shit

I’ll pick you up; we can make it

It didn’t snow at all all year

Just disease and patience (patients?)

Prescription googles, headband, cigs, and

Dangle a stash on our faces (like this)

Like this

Sorry I’m realizing now that I forgot to respond to all my feedback. Dont know if i knew i could do that back when this site started. I was hoping someone would enjoy their trip over Funktown Bridge and I’m glad it was you.

ryan.mp3 July 21, 2020 1:29pm
