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.
There are achievements in videogames that I don’t have the nerves to attain. Whether there are platforms I don’t have the patience to precisely jump on, given tens or hundreds of jumps, shots that I don’t have the patience to execute, or other examples, I want to casually meander through 80% of media to comprehensively meander through the remaining 20% of media. A casual rule of thumb might be: I’ll give up after 10 attempts in an 80% media.
I’ve listened to shy of 230 albums released in 2020 between January 01 and May 16. I listen to new albums primarily to hear new things but secondarily to find new favorites. Over these past few months, I’ve only found three albums that I would consider buying. All the rest I heard legally, through streaming platforms, so I’ve invested zero dollars into this project. I still wonder, though, why do I keep up this project, this Album Review Game?
