“In a famous blind taste test of then-hot rockers that Albert Goldman wrote up for Life, Jones expressed satisfaction with the work of Keith Moon with the simple words, “The man is a drummer.” That must have been like having God part the clouds, look down at you and nod, “This one I like.” (On the other hand, exposed to some jackass — i.e., Cream’s Ginger Baker — dishonoring his beloved instrument of choice, Jones shifted about painfully before offering the lost soul some much-needed career advice: "They should make him an astronaut and lose his ass.”)”

Your ex talks all this shit about “all the things he’s going to do” with his life. Like aside from sitting around in cafes sipping lates with his parents money as his acting career goes nowhere.

You can’t hide from that fucking car. You still get that involuntary reaction of remembering the good times when you see that familiar looking Jeep.

Your ex has that magic way of manipulating your emotions and pushing every button possible to make you think that any endeavor outside your relationship with them is a waste of time. But you know it’s bullshit, and yet…
