The Dark of the Matinée

Day 32: F is for Franz Ferdinand

find me and follow me through corridors, refectories and files
you must follow, leave this academic factory
you will find me in the matinee, the dark of the matinee
it’s better in the matinee, the dark of the matinee is mine

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, ALEX KAPRANOS! (b. 20 March, 1972.)

“For years, I felt miserable about being an outsider, but then I suddenly embraced it. I saw the value of being an outsider. It was liberating. You didn’t have to worry about trying to fit in or losing your insider status. It also encouraged you to challenge and provoke the status quo.”
