Here’s Buffalo Tom’s “Late At Night” being used as background music for a scene in a My So-Called Life episode. The awkwardness and longing, the nervous attempts to pay attention to everything going on in everyone else’s life but have no one notice that you’re doing it, and again, the inarticulate dialogue… all of this feels like high school to me. Of course, while I related to Angela Chase back when I was watching the show, I knew that in reality, I was Brian Krakow, too scared to take any chances on rejection, or do anything that might get me in trouble. I’m still that way, to an uncomfortable extent. And by the way, can we get some love for Ricky Vasquez, who was, to my knowledge, the first gay teen ever portrayed as a sympathetic character on American network television? I guess in that way, My So-Called Life was kind of groundbreaking. But this post is supposed to be about Buffalo Tom. I know. Sorry.
