Day 4: Still Fighting It

Rockin’ The Suburbs (2001)

INT. DORM ROOM – DAY

MILES enters and sits at his desk. He gets out papers, ready to spend his night studying.

MILES
(to himself, lonely)
I love math. Seriously, numbers are so cool…

INSET: A Ben Folds music video begins to play on the TV set.

MILES
(to himself, even lonelier)
If math was girl, I bet she’d be hot- hey, what’s that?

He gets up and walks to the TV set. He listens to a song told from the perspective of a father writing to his son. His father muses with both regret for his own shortcomings and pride for his son.

MILES
(to no one but himself)
I must have that album. That that song is off. Of.

I’ve made a smart playlist of all the songs with 0 plays. I listen to them because I feel bad for them not because I like the music. I’m THAT guy.

  1. Miles has always confused me concerning his writing and will Ben Folds inspire you to get back into piano. You were on the verge to being a very good pianist!
