One of the weird things about being the one in charge of building a blog is that you have to post something every day, even when you don’t feel like it. Even when writing a blog post feels like the smallest, dumbest thing. It feels meaningless, and pretending that nothing is new and going about your business, as if this does have meaning, almost seems insensitive.
But trying to “tie it in” feels similarly senseless. But then I remember — this is my blog, I can post what I want. This is not a symbolic protest post or a self-important righteous gesture on a tiny, meaningless website. If music is our great cathartic mechanism, our therapy and our expression, then this is just me doing what I always do. There is nothing I want today except to get through the anger and muck with my music. So here’s your song for the day. Be good to each other out there for as long as you can.
