I’m going through the 2014 albums while I study to write my end-of-the-year music blogs. I know! I haven’t posted 2013’s yet–but I’m still working on it. Anyway, I got to Imogen Heap, and it reminds me very much of Douche.
It has been forever since I’ve written about Douche–mostly b/c I hate to think of that creep. Also, because I finally accepted some people are sociopaths–no matter how well you thought you knew them. Imogen Heap actually reminds me of Myspace Alicia, some 19 year old girl Douche attached to. Imogen was this girl’s favorite and I know that because I used to scour her Myspace profile trying to understand.
At the time, I didn’t get that people played games. I was naive that an older person (Douche) would hook a 19 year old just to show off how “cute” of a gal could be secured. I didn’t get that Douche was maybe trying to make me–the world–envious. At the time, I only looked and looked trying to see what the 2 could possibly have in common. . .
I hate Douche-still do, I’ll never stop. I didn’t deserve that treatment, and didn’t understand where it was coming from at that time. I had no idea you could be close to someone for 3 years but not know them at all. I didn’t know there were sociopaths that adapted their personality to what they thought you wanted–did want–in order to manipulate. And I didn’t know the extent people could play games after a break-up. BUT knowing Douche did teach me lessons: Don’t date someone b/c you feel shallow for not being attracted to them, if something seems too good to be true-it probably is, not everyone is going to be honest with you, not everyone has your best interests at heart, some people are just not meant to be understood, sometimes you have to let people (or the memory of who they were supposed to be) go.
I wonder if Myspace Alicia felt the same way in the end that I did–that it was a fake and a trick. I hope Douche got (and is still getting) all the bad karma that is deserved. Though I have no idea where that crazy is or what that evil is up to currently–thank goodness…
I like the new album even if it takes me back to that chapter of my life a little.
