I was just skateboarding while listening to "Tu Pauperum Refugium", a motet for four part chorus, by Josquin Des Prez--Franco-Flemmish composer of the Renaissance, apparently, thank you wikiworld--when I was wondering why the ground was getting closer to me. Then it hit me, that I am a mass of weird contradictions.

"I Just Wanna Have Something to Do", by The Ramones, came on my mp3 player as I stood up and knocked the grit out of my scratches. I got back on my skateboard and, as much as I enjoy the works of Des Prez, I decided that the tempo of The Ramones really does fit skateboarding better.
