I temporarily become a stereotype

So I was driving to the grocery store and realized that I was wearing mostly black, listening to "Experimental Jet Set" by Sonic Youth, and living in Seattle. "Experimental Jet Set" is one of the trashiest, in a good way, Sonic Youth albums, the sort of thing you'd expect from members of a jet-set of decadent experimental artists. Kim Gordon the bassist and vocalist sounds like she's flying high on heroin throughout it. I mean, that's the kind of thing that you listen to when you go to the grocery store, right? Goin' out to buy some stuff to make salads, some bagels, and some breakfast cereal, listening to atonal semi-noise music, they go together just fine.
