Last time I played REM it was to remind myself not to go back to Rockville. Here’s another one of my favorite early REM songs, The Flowers of Guatemala. Flowers for your Friday. May they cover everything.
Today’s writerly thought of the day is this: talent has nothing to do with success. Talent is not even part of the equation. Like most things in life, it’s about doing the work and showing up. So show up and do it.
Here’s Fuck Buttons with Flight of the Feathered Serpent for your Tuesday. This song starts out slow, then flies (like a feathered serpent I daresay).
Today’s Song of the Day is brought to you Lorn. You might remember him from an earlier SOTD, Acid Rain. This is his remarkable song (and mesmerizing accompanying video) entitled Anvil. You’re gonna want to glue your eyes to this one. It doesn’t disappoint. This one is giving me both death and survival vibes.
