A/N: Prompt #3 | I didn’t expect this to be kind of sad at the
end, but here is another one!
You hated your Fall semester class schedule because
all the courses you had to take only had one class available so you had to take
it at whatever time it was. You hated that your Intermediate Chemistry class
was at 7:35 AM. You couldn’t even process any material at that time. You didn’t
know anyone who can.
You had a late night last night because you were
working on a project for your Rock ‘N’ Roll class that was due today. You made
sure to set an alarm for 6 AM before you went to bed. However, it was a
different story when your alarm didn’t go off or you didn’t hear it. You
frantically searched for your phone and saw that your clock said 7 AM. You
quickly jumped out of bed, grabbed your toothbrush and toothpaste and headed
straight into the communal bathroom to brush your teeth. You looked like a mess
and it was going to stay like that.
Showing himself — or at least his Father John Misty self — warts and all is central to Tillman’s satirical approach, and the shock of these frankly misogynistic lines give the songwriting’s lighter elements teeth. At the same time, they expose the limits of Tillman’s Misty project so far. His ugly imagery exposes the limits of rock ‘n’ roll romanticism and indict the skinnily macho character he’s created. But Father John Misty walks away from these encounters unscathed and able to redeem himself through the love of the “right” woman. Created in collaboration with Emma, I Love You, Honeybear does reflect the dialogue with a community that allows artists to keep refining their outrageousness. But it’s a hothouse community of two, and Tillman’s ultimate faith in his own sincerity as a lover provides a redemption that his Misty character simply doesn’t earn.
