It's funny how time changes our memory of an experience. The cartoon and the song tell the same story from 2002: I went to a party, I met a cool girl, we had a great time and then she shot me down.
The difference is that I wrote the song a few days after the party and the cartoon was made this week. The song definitely has a sweeter sentiment of the whole experience, it makes me seem a little more... understanding I guess. The cartoon on the other hand shows me a little more pissed off.
Either way you tell the story I'm a schmuck.
