Run Run Run Run Run (Velvet Underground)Due to sleep schedules and the like I have been jogging in the evening recently. In order to reduce my chances of being run over by a car, I am not wearing headphone. It’s an entirely different experience.
See with my headphones on I never really notice when I get tired. I can lose myself entirely in Aphex Twin’s ambient musings. I can glide along, floating on his music, until a 75 year-old woman who can’t see over the steering wheel tries to run me down on the way out of her driveway. Or until someone in a dodge pickup leans out of the truck to threaten to run me over. Ahhh, Los Angeles.
Without the headphones, I suddenly realized how much longer it takes me to get tired than it used to. I made it about a mile and a half, and had to stop at a stoplight. Suddenly, I noticed that I wasn’t out of breath. I was shocked and amazed.
Oh yeah, I may post something this evening about why Malkin has convinced me profiling is a bad idea. I’m still working out the tightest way to express my ideas…(I promise it won’t be as bad as my capitalism post, which was nearly unreadable, but I swear the argument is good).
