Throwing Muses - “Walking In The Dark”

Speaking of music from my high school years, I still remember the first time I heard the Throwing Muses album House Tornado. I’d been listening to TM for a few years but wasn’t entirely clear on their back catalog - the order of it, volume, etc. My teenage years were the emergence of my immersion in bands and artists I loved, but it took a while to discover all the ins and outs and facts and fictions pre-internet. I was visiting my friend Sarah who was a freshman in college my senior year of high school. We were hanging out in the room of this gorgeous gay guy she was friends with; he had a shaved head and was sort of punk-meets-dance-major-meets-general-weirdo. So of course I was completely petrified by him. We got stoned and at some point I mentioned my love for Throwing Muses. He was very excited by this news and asked if I’d heard House Tornado yet, which I had not. He was really psyched to play it for me and, in retrospect, maybe that was a kind of musical flirtation. I am only marginally less clueless than I was in those days as to whether or not a guy was Showing Interest In Me. We all sat/lay around his dorm room listening to this sparse, haunting, spooky, exhilarating record, made all the more intense by our being stoned. (But the album is no less impactful when I am stone sober, and is equally affecting and unsettling to this day.) This song has always been one of my favorite tracks and can still create this rush of something indescribable in me. I sometimes think this might be my favorite Throwing Muses album. But to make such bold statements about a band I love to pieces is kind of ridiculous, as the love is massive and ever shifting, with different songs and albums speaking louder to me at some moments more than others. 

I think she’s done some really good work. I don’t know her personally and I hope that she takes care of herself. She has a beautiful daughter and I’d like to see Courtney take care of herself physically. But other than that, I think she’s done really good work. I haven’t seen her live but I saw the Unplugged show (on MTV) and I liked the Live Through This album. Doll Parts is a great song. I thought the Unplugged performance was really great. I think the band is really good and I think it’s important for them to take care of themselves. They’ve already lost one band member, poor girl, and I just think it’s important that for even artists that move toward the edge, you have to maintain some balance or you won’t live. I think life is too great. I hate to see anybody throw their life away, so I hope that a lot of these younger people will try to maintain some balance.

Did you ever just feel so lucky for knowing someone you met online?
Like.. I was one click away from not following you. I was one second away from never even knowing of your existence. 
I would never have been this happy. 

I stay up just late enough until I am just exhausted enough that I can fall into my bed and sink into immediate slumber. Because I can’t stand lying in a bed in a dark room alone with just my thoughts for so many hours and hours.
