Peg by Stee…
No, scratch that. This De La Soul’s liberal sampling of Peg in Eye Know.
I’m going to change my name to Edmund Fitzgerald
I never realized that happened in 1975. I thought it must have been 1875 or something. Maybe because Gord Lightfoot’s song sounds like a Victorian sea shanty.
The beautiful and hauntingly romantic love theme from “Call Me By Your Name,” the movie where it was perfectly OK to lust after Armie Hammer and/or a 17-year-old (to be fair Chalamet was actually about 21 when this movie was filmed):
…but was it really? I still haven’t watched it because Armie Hammer allegedly abused his partner and has more than enough money to make that her problem not his. Also the age difference/life experience difference between the two characters. Younger me would have loved to watch it. Current bitter bag of principles me just can’t press play.
At the time, though, 2017, when Armie Hammer’s personal life was a well-hidden secret (or at least I knew nothing about it.) As for the age difference thing, that’s been a Hollywood romance trope since the silent film era, the only difference being the younger of the pair was always a woman. Two Audrey Hepburn films spring to mind, “My Fair Lady” and “Funny Face.” In neither one was Hepburn cast as a teenager, true, but arguably when G. B. Shaw wrote the play in 1913 Eliza Doolittle was meant to be, and maybe a young teenager, since there were very weak child labor laws.
Oh yes I know all about that trope. When I could relate to the younger of the two, I was conditioned by society to be into it. Now that I’m closer in age with older of the pair and I know more, it’s groomingly gross regardless of gender.
