There's nothing like looking back at a year that turns out to be totally fu-barred. Well. . . sort of.
We, as a culture, have become more and more focused on the negativity of the end of a year and mocking the year gone-by. Not that it isn't funny, but I feel like there's some sort of bandwagon that everyone hijacked as it went by. Actually. . . come to think of it. . . to be anti-celebratory is all the rage these days. "I don't 'do' Halloween" or "I don't 'do' the whole gift thing." We're protecting ourselves from something. From the harshness of the hard times many of us have fallen on? To compensate our sorry state with jaded outlooks on life? Boy am I cliche today! Just walk away. . . .
Enjoy the musical stylings of Jonathan Mann (who also did the not-suitable-for-informative-paper-research Song A Day #709: The History of Video Games. . . that I almost showed my kids for fun before break on this fake Day 9 of CAH Presents 12 Days of Holiday Bullshit).
Oh yeah. . . and don't forget the cards.
