Old friends

I met an old friend last week, we played together in a band.
Had not met him since 2002 - he was very annoying back then, working as a TV producer or something guy, I don't know - amd I thought it would be interesting to get some updates.

It was in a way.

I told him about my two EP albums and the TOAX project (I spent about 500+ hours to create all that music of my mind). He said that's kinda cool, but he also composed some BRILLIANT songs - pure genius (took him only an hour)! A genuine genre mix between hip hop and trance and techno and rock. Unheard so far. He's going to get a BRILLIANT female singer and he is going to make a viral hit.

Ah, Ok. I was very curious. I should have been suspicous when he mentioned Garageband and his iPad, but OK.

The rest of the evening he was
* showing pictures of his girlfriends since 2009 on his iPhone (did I mention he is married?). I was wondering: who on earth has the whole girlfriend history on a NEW iPhone?!?! And shows them after 20 minutes to a guy he has met 2 times since 1990 (that greek guy, maybe)?
* telling me of his TV projects he did with the FAMOUS actor Never-heard-of and Professor Also-never-heard-of and so on ...
* telling stories of things he did 3 times of much and faster and glorious when I talked about something (did I mention he was 3 hours lat at our appointment?)

Anyway ...
So I came home late on my cheap crap scooter ("I'll buy one of those myself these days") and I had to listen to his music immediatly.

OK. I don't know how to put it.
Maybe: it sounds like a something a uninspired 12 years old noob would do with Garageband, arranging random loops. It is shit. Terrible annoying generic superfucked dickhead wank. I did not like it.

So, what did I learn?

1.) Don't expect annoying old friends contributing anything essential to your life. Instead, say something like "oh, I can't meet you. I'm dead!".
2.) There's music. And there's Garageband.

Sounds a wee bit insufferable. Is his last name Drumpf?

Over the years the "old" part has become much stronger,allthough the "friend" part faded

That doesn't sound very fun. No wonder you didn't keep in contact with him.

If you've got a pic of your old friend you might get the chinese papermakers to make a variation of their bestseller.

Can't be me. I'm with the same girl for 6 years and counting.
Old friends are shit and that's why they are old friends.

I was friends with both a freakish womanizer and a hardcore catholic.

I found the first too "out there" and the second found me too "free"

Which means I've settled somewhere in the middle.
