Well, Transman isn’t just lazy. He’s actually pretty busy, but he doesn’t want his friends and the occasional random reader to think he’s forgotten all about them. No, no, he hasn’t. He loves each and every one of you (even though he would never say that in person because he is an INTJ on the Meyers-Briggs scale–which basically translates to “smart, but cold, unfeeling ass who does not do well in groups and cannot express feelings to save their life.”)
Because he loves you and even though he cannot say so out loud, Transman wants to share some music. If you’re a child of the 1980s, you’ll remember the significance of the “mix-tape;” if you’re a child of the digital era, perhaps you’re more comfortable with the “playlist” that you cobble together to give to the object of your affections. So, here, take these tunes and know they were put together will all kinds of sugary feeling. But, do not hug me in thanks. Never. Ever. No hugs.
Now for a mix of tunes for love and good times:
David Lindley’s “Bon Temps Rouler” was playing on the jukebox when you walked into the café and stole Transman’s heart.
John Prine’s “Glory of True Love” sums up the infatuation of our love.
John Prine and Iris Dement “In Spite of Ourselves” … this is our song once we’re no longer afraid to pass gass in front of each other.
Once Transman makes chili for a week straight and you break up with him, he consoles himself with David Lindley’s cover of the Everly Brothers’ “Bye Bye Love.”
