you know that saying that goes like
"be there or be square"?
i just realized why it's like that
it's cuz if you're not there, you're not around.
you're not a ROUND
A SQUARE IS NOT ROUND
@20excalibur07 I think A square was originally someone who didn't "Get" Jazz.
I've got to assume it's because a square is rigidly defined and old, and not at all free-form and new.
The "around" thing sounds like how you'd explain it to your mom who didn't want you listening to that new-fangled music.
