Song of the Day: "Black Rainbows"

You ever hear a song you like to much that you stop the work you're getting paid to do so you can post it as a song of the day that won't appear for like 2 more days?

Me neither.

Song of the Day: "Cross My Heart"

I'm instantly charmed by Melody's Echo Chamber and hopefully you will be too.

Song of the Day: "1-800-273-8255"

Fuck this is a great idea for a song. I don't begrudge people who decide to end their own lives--I think it's selfish to call them selfish. Without knowing their pain, you can't know whether the decision was valid.

But all that is predicated  on it being the decision of an adult, someone with real context for what their life is, what it will be. Young people need to talk to someone first, and this number, the National Suicide Prevention Hotline, is a good place to start.

Certainly better than calling me at 2 in the morning. I probably won't answer.

Song of the Day: " Metamorpheus"

The artist formerly known as Terrance Trent D'Arby is back with a 3 CD release and this is the first single.

This.

This is the best they could come up with.

That does not bode well.

Synergy in Healthcare

Note: there's no overlap
Could it be that having a for-profit entity between you and your doctor isn't the best thing for your health?

Nah. I'm sure it's fine since it's the way we've been doing things for millions of years.

Song of the Day: "Our Hell"

Emily Haines of Metric is back as Soft Skeleton (the album is credited to Emily Haines & The Soft Skeleton, but Soft Skeleton is Emily Haines's solo project from a decade ago). Where does Metric end and her solo sound begin? Hard to say...
