ways in which dave lowensohn makes me a better person:
the other day, dave completely reshaped my world as it pertains to the word “ambivalent” (and my “ambivalent”-pertaining world was an oft-visited one).
i have always used the word ambivalent to mean blandly, uncaringly neutral. if i was ambivalent toward something, i had no strong opinion, didn’t really care either way, etc..
it turns out that ambivalent means 50/50, but balanced between strong pros and cons. that ambivalence implies passion.
just another reason to like being in a band with dave.
