When in doubt, ask the old guy
Strangely discomforting conversation in the local downtown corporate record store - I still can't call it anything but a record store even though vinyl is nowhere to be seen.
Overly enthusiastic man with South American (?) accent: "Do you know song strangewaytosayyouloveme ?"
22 year old clerk: "huh"
Enthusiastic man: "Do you have CD with that song?"
Clerk: "Do you know a... title or anything?"
Me: "What was the line again?"
Enthusiastic man: "Strange way to say you love me."
Me (embarrassed to remember): "Firefall."
Enthusiastic man: "That it! Firefall! Firefall!"
So Enthusiastic Man drags dubious clerk over to the F section, all the while shouting "Firefall! Firefall!" They manage NOT to find any Firefall CDs (the used vinyl section at Goodwill would be a better bet) but the clerk managed to help him order it. As he left (still exclaiming "Firefall!") the clerk and I caught each other's eyes:
Me: "I almost regret saying that."
Clerk: "Oh, well, he went away."
So is it spectacularly cool to know that pop culture factoid, or spectacularly un-cool? At least I was wearing an old punk rock t-shirt when I uttered the F word.
