Home: The Toast

Clueless (1995)

Tai: Man, I’m freaking. I could really use some sort of herbal refreshment.

Dionne: Oh, well we do lunch in ten minutes. We don’t have any tea, but we have Coke and stuff.

Tai: No shit. You guys got Coke here?

My thoughts: Man, Dionne is dense, Tai is obviously asking for pot. But I also don’t get why Tai is so excited about soda.


Descendents, “I’m Not a Loser” (1982)

“Take a girl out / she won’t fuck you / you just bought her a gram of coke / spent all your money on shitty coke”

My thoughts: Again, I don’t really get why a small amount of soda is such an issue on this date.


Third Eye Blind, “Semi-Charmed Life” (1997)

“The sky it was gold, it was rose / I was taking sips of it through my nose”

My thoughts: That just seems like interesting imagery right there.


A MAD Magazine cartoon that mentioned “angel dust” I read when I was 10

My thoughts: Is that like, a magic thing? Like fairy dust? That sounds fun.


The Simpsons, “Homerpalooza” (1996)

Bart: [sniffing] What is that smell?
Lisa: It smells like Otto’s jacket…

My thoughts: I guess Otto has a lot of body odor, as I imagine standing in a crowd at a music festival you’d smell a lot of body odor.


The band The Crystal Method

My thoughts: They must be into reiki.


The Velvet Underground, “I’m Waiting For The Man” (1967)

Every single lyric

My thoughts: Well that was a strange interaction.
