Today is exactly the kind of day that only music can make better, dear reader. Today is the kind of day that inspired this entire blog. I do try my best to be upbeat as much as possible, because wow, there is a crapload of stuff wrong in the world that we can easily take to heart and allow to affect us every second of every minute of every hour of every day. However, even the unsinkable Miss Pink has her rough days, and this is one of them. So what do I do to make this day better, dear reader? I’ll share my tips with you here and now:
1.) Ignore Facebook/Twitter/Myspace/whatever social network you are plugged into. Chances are you have some “friends” on there who annoy the living s*** out of you. Or perhaps everyone is just rubbing you the wrong way lately. Or maybe it’s all of the depressing news that people just love to post and repost until we all just wanna slit our wrists and be done with it. Screw it, and screw them. You don’t need someone to “like” your life, it’s great just the way it is, thank you very much.
2.) Imbibe something comforting. Hot tea, popcorn, chocolate, whatever. Take in something physical that gives you pleasure and makes you feel good. Better yet, pet a cat.
3.) Play some f***ing music, and TURN IT UP LOUD. I SAID LOUD! A beloved song is good. New music by a righteous band is even better. Behold the newest offering from Cold Cave, Cherish The Light Years. I personally recommend “The Great Pan Is Dead.” Turn that s*** up loud enough, and you won’t be able to hear any of the voices that try to bring you down, including your own. Happy Friday, little earbuds.
