All My Friends

All my friends is a great song by LCD Soundsystem. We can all agree on that, can't we? If not, stop reading this, because you are a fucking idiot.

Anyway, I've enjoyed the song for many years, and I've always thought, at least, that i understood most of the lyrics. Well, all except for one -- the line when James says "if you're worried about the weather, then you've picked the wrong place to stay."

Sidenote--since you last heard from me, I've pretty much been doing the same. The one thing that has changed, however, is my memory and recall ability. If someone tells you that years of drug abuse does not affect the brain, don't believe them. I am a dumber person now for having packed my beak for so many years. There is no question about it. What was I talking about again?

Oh yeah, All my Friends. So after many years of listening and thinking that the line (line!) didn't make any sense and was just filler, i was in the shower, and the song came on, and it struck me. Usually my best "ideas" do strike me in the shower. When i'm not whacking off in there anyway. So now I'm convinced that the line refers to the impending "blizzard" that is about to happen in the apartment where the song takes place, long before they are "running out of the drugs." Am I on to something here? Anyone believe me? Anybody out there?
