I woke up this morning not wanting to wake up this morning. Everything about existing hurt. I did wake up this morning, but it took me about one hour to pry myself out of bed. I still have four more mornings, potentially this bad, before the surgery to help my spine. Until then, I have to make every effort to maintain my body’s decrepit state. After meandering through some media, I feel ready to write.
Late last year, I mused over what goals I wanted to achieve in 2019. Now that it’s approaching 2020, how did I do? My New Year’s Resolution was “removing more burdens from my life,” which, I achieved. I’ll use the same resolution, “removing more [external] burdens from my life,” since it efficiently summarizes what I want out of my life. After reviewing my favorite media, I’ll write about my goals and how I plan to achieve them.
For me, 2018 is the turning point where albums readjusted to the digital age. For materialistic listeners, we can easily afford and acquaint ourselves with CDs, records, and cassettes. For highlight listeners, it’s easier than ever to legally access just about any album we could think, at least in the top 100. Now we are the gatekeepers. If we like something, we can invest our time before we invest our money. The industry paywall guesswork is gone.
