Weird, Unremarkable Story

This was very odd. Strange telling of events that don't connect or are relevant to the big reveal they seem to be building up to. Very all over the place. The musical interludes are bizarre to say the least. I found odd tangents about losing virginity and drugs especially perplexing. The construction of this....story?...drove me nuts.
