The Who- Quadrophenia
This album is the story of a boy. His name is Jimmy.
This album is the story of Jimmy and how he doesen't know if he's a mod or a punker. Most coming of age stories have boys who don't know if they're gay or straight, so I guess Jimmy has it pretty easy.
Jimmy rides around on a scooter with his mod friends. I guess you could say that he probably is gay then. You'd be wrong though. Jimmy was born with both sets of genitalia, and technically he had enough estrogen to be legally considered a girl. The doctor made him a boy though, because the doctor was actually gay and knew Jimmy was going to be hot when he grew up.
A lot of my friends ask me what a mod is, but I'm not really sure. I think it's short for commodo. It's kind of like a commando but you dress really sharply and steal people's clothes after you kill them, and you have to wear all the clothes of the people you kill. Highly respected mods look like Orson "Nine Courses" Welles. It's easy to kill a highly-respected mod by turning up the thermostat.
Rockers are the bad guys in this rock opera. I think it's because Pete Townsend was sold bad child porn by a rocker. He wanted young nubile boys naked with Hitler mustaches, but instead he got a magazine about goats. Child porn is legal in the UK, but you have to sell it with a paper bag over the front, so you don't always know what you're going to get. Child porn is a frustrating hobby.
The story ends with Jimmy fucking the ocean. Then he also gets the sky pregnant and when the sky gets pregnant clouds form, and then Jimmy's kids rained all over him, so he was sad.
This rock opera has music, also. I think the vocal harmony during The Spunk and the Goofather is the same as the one during the song about the PH unbalanced empress on Tommy (Also a Rock opera, except God made Tommy blind instead of gay.)
Song: Here is the song Pathetic by Blink 182. I like it very much.
