Earthbound concerns of an ascendant adult

I met a bike messenger a few days ago. With my fancy reflective vest on, I biked al supermercado at midnight and post-purchase—of some water and whatnot—I requested a double bagging from my cashier. “Because I biked here.” “You need a Chrome Bag,” said the bike messenger, in line behind me. “I used one when I worked as a messenger a few years ago.” I recommended he watch this video. “Haha,” he said, “you do have to be on crack to be a bike messenger, sometimes.” Anyway, I’ve watched this maybe 50 times. It’s awesome. Watching these messengers weave around cars and cut off pedestrians is hypnotic.

The song is Broken Social Scene, “Bandwitch,” from the s/t.
