At McMennamins Ringlers we saw an ad for dark wave dancing on Sunday nights at nine. Although we were dragging after dinner we convinced ourselves we had to go because how often do we get to dance to goth music anymore?

We showed up at 9:15 and were told no one was upstairs and that people usually just trickle in and they are probably going to stop doing it soon.

This not only makes me sad, but also makes me feel old because 15 years ago there would have been a line around the block to get in. And most people have moved on in their musical tastes, but Jeff and I will always have a space in our hearts reserved for new wave.
