1. Up at 6:40 am, espresso-fueled, I picked up the Winter 2016 edition of n+1 and read Sarah Resnick's fascinating, yet alarming, article about navigating the world of a heroin user, her uncle. http://nplusonemag.com/issue-24/essays/h/ This article alone is worth my subscription.
  2. Two nights ago I took my first listen to the latest Car Seat Headrest release, 'Teens of Denial,' and last night spent more time with 'A Moon Shaped Pool,' Radiohead's latest. Ostensibly, both bands fall into the genres of Rock or Alternative, neither of which do justice here. Polar opposites; both are great recordings. File under 'great.'
