I am totally iced in tonight. I mean I guess I could go out, but since I am freakishly tall and naturally clumsy, I don't do so well with the ice. So tonight became a night of nostalgia. Listening to some of the seminal albums of my life, cover to cover. I got to the Verve's 'Urban Hymns' a second ago and felt obligated to share my inner dialogue.
Such a killer album. And it found me at the most opportune time. I swear EVERY track on that record has some sort of anecdote attached to it... as I listen there is a virtual slideshow going on in my head. Then I started thinking about last year's Coachella and the utter bliss that I felt when 50,000 people were all singing along to the chorus of 'Bittersweet Symphony'....chills on top of chills on top of chills. Those moments, those snapshots of perfection are what make all of the day to day drudgery worth while....amen.
