@deeplydisturbed I don't get it. What part is the foreshadowing?
I like both the girls here. One gives thrill of the chase, the other will make her interest clear enough.
There's one more type which is the shy/demure type.
And you also got the tsundere type who hide the interest behind a bitchy facade.
That's pretty much the 4 types ways girl show interest.
Lemme know if there is any type I missed.
Unlikely though since I am such a pussy magnet
This song originally came out in the 80s when I was a love-thirsty young man, and my Blue Pill interpretation at the time went something like, "Awww, she's come to her senses and finally appreciates a good man!" From my Red Pill perspective today, it's clear that this is the anthem of a post-wall woman settling HARD.
And it used to be for a while
That the river flowed right to my door
Making me just a little too free
But now the river doesn't seem to stop here any more...

Here's an interesting pop culture relic for the day. In 1989 Brian Wilson of the Beach Boys recorded this song praising Smart Girls, which was co-written by his grifter-psychologist and that guy's GF (around the time his license to practice Psychology in California got taken away).
I heard the song played on the Dr. Demento show when it was new, with Wilson live in-studio as a guest. Wilson was a hot mess psychologically, and more than once Dr. Demento had to deftly redirect him when he started down a maundering path of "Lotta problems..."
The song has Brian reflecting on the shallow female characters in classic Beach Boys songs, and virtue signals a newfound appreciation for women who are smart over hot. As such, it presents a Gordian Knot of Blue Pill pop culture tropes and ideals and unwittingly shows the "shallow" songs as more true to the SMP as it exists; kind of a crude unwitting Red Pill. In real life, most girls DO behave with, and feel attraction according toward silly and superficial factors, not from depth of character and intelligence and careful planning and goal-orientation.
As for the production values, in the late 80s digital sampling was still in its infancy and fit for little more than novelty effects. Syncing up production music samples for timing, tempo, and pitch was still a matter of art and technical skill.Read More
