Two last releases from the Crypto Order vaults to wrap up 2022, both December drops… It’s funny how this sort of thing has come to be the exemplary soundtrack for these insane times. Not haha funny, but you know… There was a time when I would have simply dismissed these sounds as non-musical. Now, they make more sense than I can even explain. It’s a jarring mirror image of the era. Whatever… times change and people change. Nothing in my life leading up to now could have prepared me for any of this. Had you asked me even 20 years ago I would have told you… well fuck it. I was drunk twenty years ago and not particularly capable of… well… not capable of anything. I was just drunk. Now I’m not, and I can’t seem to shut my eyes.
And everything I’m witnessing sounds like this:
I’m sure there was a lot of music released in 2022. I haven’t heard most of it, I’m certain. At the same time, would there be a point in trying? You find what works and go for it.
I’m not going to make a gratitude list to wrap up the year. I’m not going to even try to summarize it all. You may have seen it differently so it doesn’t bear out conversation. I’ve spent my entire life trying to explain myself, mostly in the face of blank stares. And don’t worry because even I’m weary of hearing it.
I may have another entry tonight. I found out that I’ll be spending New Years Eve alone. There are mixed feelings about that. It’s part sad, and part relief. Relief for many reasons. I don’t want to hear people saying yet again that the past year has been the worst ever. Resolutions bore me. Rituals gag me. Expectations of what this night should be make me want to cry. For real.
I’m going to shower and not watch the news. How’s that for a plan?
