I really should write a song called “Complicated Brain” that can be summarized between two characters this way:
Derek: “I'm perfectly content with living a solitary day-to-day lifestyle and being completely uninterested in dating and marriage.”
Amy: “You are making a freaking enormous mistake by having this sort of antisocial mentality and not getting your emotions out there a lot more, you pathetic waste of life. All your quirks are also completely retarded BTW.”
What I find ironic is that being in the presence of really happy, energetic girls is what tends to trigger those bad “Amy” thoughts, in which this character attacks my brain periodically and tries to come up with as many reasons why I might be a horrible person as possible. Is one of them lying, or do they both have a point? That's the question...
Also watch out for Eric, who decides to act like a sarcastic asshole at completely inappropriate times, Bobby, who wants to build creative projects by obsessively plagiarizing other people and throwing their work into a different context and Gary, who would rather surf the internet and sleep than do anything productive.

Oh yeah, also Dan the Serious Businessman, who is comically honest and literal to the point of annoyance, and Jack, the old, outdated guy who hates bookstore children. My multiple personalities are so much fun! 
Not that anyone cares about CD's anymore, but it greatly annoys my OCD side when certain "cases" don't fit my holders. Down with you, Animal Collective - Merriwether Post Pavilion, The Beach Boys - The Smile Sessions, Beach House - Bloom, Dream Theater - Live At Budokan, Fleet Foxes - Helplessness Blues, George Harrison - All Things Must Pass, King Crimson - Starless And Bible Black and THRAK, Joanna Newsom - Have One On Me, Pearl Jam - Backspacer, Procol Harum - Something Magic, Sigur Ros - Takk... and Inni, and Wilco - The Whole Love! I don't care how good most of you are!

If I had a time machine, I'd create a documentary series about formerly great bands getting all enthusiastic about sessions for bad albums, and vice versa.

Talking about our fictional characters with Casey Brennan:
ME: Amy tries to be Gretchen Lohse ut fails.
CASEY: Asperger's Andy tries to be an alien and he succeeds.
Gretchen replying to that Facebook post:
GRETCHEN: I like that in some world, it is easier to be an alien than it is to be me.
ME: I would think so... you're ridiculously amazing. If I ever get around to writing my 15 characters series, my dysfuctional couple Amy and Eric would go to a lot of Paper Masques shows and hound you and Steve. Amy possibly has her second child in between the sets of Gemini Wolf and Language Problem on April 28th.
GRETCHEN: Aw, well that's pretty flattering! I can only hope that I go into labor during an awesome show some day. You'll have to send me your series when you get to finishing it!

"I don't understand the full range of human emotions. But I do understand that 'Looking For Someone' by Genesis is 7 minutes and 7 seconds long." -Asperger's Andy
