It has taken me five years to figure out the name of this song. While I cannot say that I’ve been actively looking, when this came on my Soul Cycle radio the other day, I nearly lost my marbles.
About five years ago there was a viral video circling the web that saw a bunch of dancers wearing storm trooper costumes dancing to this song. I think it was on America’s Got Talent. Don’t quote me on that, though. I just remember Simon Cowell being on the show. It was intoxicating. I remember watching the video on repeat because it was the epitome of unique entertainment to me. I still watch the video from time-to-time, but I’d never actually managed to find this song.
What is it the kids are saying these days, ‘this song is a bop’? I think. Actually, I’m probably wrong on that. I’m extremely out of touch with the younger crowd. I hit thirty and I might as well be 90, I’m so far removed.
I have been thinking that I’d like to buy a treadmill to keep in my garage. It’s been something that I’ve had on my mind since I’ve moved into this house, basically. I just haven’t been able to pull the trigger because purchasing things for a home takes a lot of time. When I moved into this place I had next to nothing. Slowly, but surely, over the past six months, I’ve gotten bedding and silverware, towels and all those other luxuries that would be impossible to live without in the western world.
Those things add up over time. Spending a thousand dollars on a treadmill just couldn’t be in the budget. In full transparency, it still shouldn’t be on the consideration list based on what I still have to purchase. That being said, I’m watching news reports that say it’ll be September of next year before enough vaccines are dispersed to make regular activity regular again. If we have another ten months of this, I want something. Especially with four of those months being in a deep freeze.
I don’t know what will happen with it. I probably won’t do anything. I like to write things down, though. Perhaps it’ll allow me to bring the desires to fruition if I actually put it on a page somewhere. You know, hold myself accountable and whatnot.
