Our Annual Abaration

Once more around the sun. Maybe a year ago I thought to myself that the pandemic might be over. Or… that it would be different at least. We're rolling up on a full year of this now, so besides a little maudlin indulgence, I'm also taking the opportunity to celebrate some very satisfying indie rock from my youth — Feeder's aptly named Yesterday Went Too Soon.

It's my birthday
No one here day
Very strange day
I think of you day
Go outside day
Sit in park day
Watch the sky day
What a pathetic day
