Speaking of Mike Posner, the music video for "Cooler Than Me" features eyeglasses as metaphors for drug-induced trips. But, if I'm reading too much into things, then eyeglasses are just eyeglasses. Which is kind of boring. Especially since I wear glasses and I like to think that they skew my perception of the world. (I mean, isn't it empowering to go around thinking, "I am so better than you"?)
Anyway, "Cooler Than Me" is the first single from Posner's 2010 full-length debut album, 31 Minutes to Takeoff, a compulsively listenable dance track that I never want to dance to in public because my superior attitude would be crushed in an instant, under the weight of my two left feet.
