“You’re not writing about Sego again, are you? You gonna run your mouth about every single song they do?”

“Oh, shaddup. I didn’t write a word about the last one — ‘Neon Me Out.’ Came out a month ago and I’ve been convulsing with uncontrollable glee ever since. And maybe cackling a little.”


“It’s everything that’s wrong, said right. … ‘Took my life for granted till I saw myself in pixels / All alone and lost for words so take a thousand pictures.’ … And that chorus.”

“Sounds too clever for its own good. Like Beck.”

“I prefer smart over clever; there’s a difference.”

“So what compels you to prattle on about your favorite band from Utah this time — besides the fact you probably just want type to their album title (‘Sego Sucks’) again?”

“Well, they’ve got this video for a new song ‘Heart Attack’”

“Is it awesome?”

“Only in the same way their other videos are — the band alternately deadpanning and spazzing out …”

“So what’s the big deal?”

“Every angular spasm, every shard of the song, they speak to the pent-up whatever in me.”

“You ever think that you should join a boxing club, or just break things every once in a while?”

“Sego is much cheaper.”
