i came across nostalgia, ultra a few days after its release back in '11. a friend of mine had put me onto odd future earlier in the year and through them i discovered frank. i don't think anything has ever clicked for me more than that day. i couldn't focus in any of my classes. i don't think i took my headphones off for a week. i've never seen a sharper sword as a pen...it made me wanna be a songwriter. i remember maybe a year later my english class was asked to analyze motifs in music. i ended up presenting my project on american wedding. i can remember the teacher saying it was such a weird version of hotel california. i think she was too set in her ways to get past it...ironic if you know the song. the class looked at me strange. i wonder if any of them are fans now.
