“I was struck by an emotion so powerful and raw that I had a hard time identifying it at first: grief. I sood there in that ecstatic crowd and mourned. I mourned all of us dumb kids. I mourned our graying hair and slackening bodies. I mourned some unnameable forgotten truth I used to know. I mourned Harold. I'd thought I was there for nostalgia; turns out I was there for an opportunity to grieve that I didn't know I'd needed”
Young and Dumb Inside
(SLNewYorker), a comic by Emily Flake
about an adolescence spent in an underground music scene, and the mid-life nostalgia of the former kids to whom music meant everything.
