All of a Sudden

In this week's episode of “Global Pandemic” I got sad. Real sad. You're not my therapist, so we needn't go into details, but point is, I'm trying to be honest about my feelings and this is where I'm at, and where I'm at is deflective humour and multi-tasking on art projects. While working on the show prep I joked (with myself, obviously) about playing something from Explosions in the Sky's All of a Sudden, I Miss Everyone, because… yeah, that. And then I had a little listen to that album and concluded that it was gonna be the record of the week anyway because my goodness what a record.

I have a pretty OK story about laying on the ground in a field at the Treasure Island Music Festival after seeing this band play live for the first time, and it's swelling and minimum-viable comforting to remember a moment of such collective euphoria in contrast to whatever the fuck this is.

I'd like to say normal service will be resumed next week, but, haha. I don't think that's how any of this works. Maybe! Also, this is as normal a service as any, really.
