New Years, Frosty Beers

27 Dec

New Years seems to embody the very exhibition of false spectacle. It is meant to be an occasion of pure fulfillment; a moment of pure rejoice – yet it is always a function of vacancy and disappointment.

It seems that when you build something up, in an attempt to solidify its worth, you just deprive that something of its true articulation of meaning. New years is no exception; as it never seems to fulfill you of your expectations.

It is presented as a momentous change in both the character of the world and character of you – when in reality, it is no different from the change of the day before. I would love to hear otherwise, but I don’t think I will… So set your expectations low and set your hopes high, for a New Years worth remembering.

This music isn’t anything new – but hopefully it is something exciting. Here are a few gems that will be played for my new years ball drop.

Hopefully you can find something of worth.
