Fly Like An Eagle

I’ve been having time management issues lately, which made the opening lyric of this classic by the Steve Miller Band pop into my head. Not to say that I’ve been wasting my time tripping balls, which seems to have been a prerequisite for any activity back in the old days. It’s like the opening of Boardwalk Empire, “Nah, I’m just innocently smoking this cigarette that I dipped in a solution of ether and opium earlier. Man, the sunrise looks awesome. It looks like it’s gonna rain, though. It might not rain, because that seagull is flying in slow motion… but the waves are at normal speed. Fuck, I should’ve brought an umbrella. No, wait! There’s the sun… behind me?!? How long have I been standing here?!? Holy shit! It’s like 3 in the afternoon, I gotta get to work!” Some of the more astute among you may have noticed that the video runs 4:20, and if you didn’t, I just pointed it out for you.
