Today I listened to music after a long time. No multi-tasking; today the songs did not play in the background. I heard the songs, tried to figure them out, Googled some of the lyrics. It was fun. I should do it more often.

Tenuously connected asides:

> Tabs are evil.

> My favourite line ever in a hippie satire song:

Hey punk where you goin with those beads around your neck?

I’m goin to the shrink so he can help me be a nervous wreck
