Rust - shot in the dark, is the first one Kurt Vile?
Yeah it's actually pretty hard to guess because you're trying to Dr. Garbanzoure out the feeling I get when I listen to that particular band, kinda. All of the guesses for mine have been wrong so far. But, what the hell, I'll do a few more...

10. It's 1970something. At a roller rink, you and your friends get in a bet: whoever gets the girl with the most glitter on wins. All of your eyes are immediately drawn to a glare; there she is! What a shimmer on her! Whoever can get to her first is surely the winner. You try to run to her with roller skates on. As you get closer to her, though, a black hole effect: she seems to be skating in slow motion now, and everything outside of you and her has sped infinitely fast. After an eternity, you touch her wrist. "Hi!" you smile. "Can I skate with you?" Her smile is fainter than yours. "Désolé... j'ici suis nouveau... puis-je vous aider?" M83

[sigh] Rules are rules, though, and it IS on the agenda... goddammit, I'll go get the Satori and some board wax." Best Coast
