Watch the video, listen to the song because it’s fabulous as Teenage Fanclub songs are.
Now watch the video with the sound off.
Either way, with the sound on or off, it’s sort of heartbreaking.
But muted, I take it personally, as if I’m watching myself go through life, bumbling through days trying to fit in, trying to make sense of it all, wondering why it seems like the world was not made for a person like me. Just trying to enjoy life and finding myself turned away from that enjoyment so often.
I identify way too much with this little robot guy.
How odd is it that when I describe myself I often use the term “just some dumb robot” and have been known to show myself as a crudely drawn square faced robot just bumbling through the world.
