A dude in my apartment building once said he used to place women he dated in one of two categories: She was either a “Bangle” or a “Go-Go.” He said you can easily make the distinction, based on their look and attitude. Looking at those all-gal bands and knowing some of their music, I sort of have to agree. The question is, can that be done today? With different girl bands? It’s not just about the look, but the musical attitude. Can I do that with Wild Flag and Warpaint? I don’t know. Maybe?


Wild Flag

And there you have it. I think I found an Irish running shirt, so look for that. Running fashion is something that will come up in that post, too. Remember. Regardless of what you may hear, it’s OK to check out the forms of fellow runners on the paths. I know a gal who was a state champ cross country runner in high school who admitted she ran a soft 10K once ’cause she was checking out some dude’s arse directly in front of her.
