Styx is for Kids?

A one-time colleague of mine - Horatio Thornblower, we'll call him - was always fond of prefacing queries with "hey Rusty, you're a hipster, maybe you would know about blah blah blah..." Which was all very pejorative and deflating because Hey words can hurt you know! words have meanings, man.

Except when they Don't.

The Hipster comment would always leave me momentarily sucker-punched and slack-jawed but I could collect myself to riposte: "but Horatio... don't you play in a post-rock outfit (or three)?"*

Which is just a long dumb way of saying Cat and Girl was spot-on today.

*in 2003 or whatever "post-rock" was maybe fashionable.
