This is the end . . . of the year that is!
Hello friends. It has been a while, hasn’t it?! Recently, I have come to the realization that long periods of often pass without notice. Sure, the weeks are long and some days are worse than others. Bad days turn into bad weeks, bad weeks turn into bad months, bad months turn into bad years – where do we go from here? As I was saying, time passes in such a strange way. I was talking to a friend and trying to recount something from November, and then I realized November was almost five months again. Jesus, where does the time go? Clocks move, things fade, we float along wondering about this life. What can we do except for struggle, try to connect as humans, and attempt to find things that make the floating worthwhile? So in the spirit of getting back to a sporadically maintained popular culture blog, here are ten songs from 2012 and words about them (I don’t mean that sentence to be twee; that is really all this is. There is no hook).
