“You stupid girl, you stupid girl. All you had you wasted…” ~Garbage
I have always loved the lyrics to this Garbage song. They resonate deeply within me because I wasted so much of my own life being unhappy and spent too much time feeling sorry for myself. I had given up years before I ever heard this song – probably as early as my teenage years. A wasted life. Wasted talent. Stupid girl.
“Don’t believe in love. Don’t believe in hate…”
It was only after I took my life back (starting circa 2003 at age 37) that I first heard of Garbage. Since then, they apparently disappeared for awhile, but are now back. Where did they go? I’m not sure. I don’t know as much about the band or their music as a music writer should, but that’s neither here nor there.
When I first joined Facebook I became a fan of their page. No status updates ever appeared and I simply forgot about them. Until now.Details
