I discovered Jeff & Maya Bohnhoff’s parody of “Get Off Of My Cloud” this summer at Westercon. Lately I’ve been listening to it a lot more. Why?
My birthday is coming up. I’m going to be 47, which moves me kinda-sorta-maybe closer to my “late forties“. Most of my coworkers are in their 20s and 30s, which increases my feeling old. And I’m in software, and yes, a lot of what I’ve worked with in my career might as well be ancient history. So, taking “a stop-bugging-me, post-teenage-alienation song” and turning it into a “leave me alone, you little hooligans!” song works for me right now.
