Sees the Stars at Lunchtime, Says He Has a Plan: Transmission 406, 2018 May 9

June 1, 2018

exek_ahead_of_two_thoughts.jpg Last time out, I mentioned that I normally listen to these mixtapes at the gym. As I write this, I am calling that practice into question. My therapist, you see, has told me that she thinks that my exercise is "proxy relief from total self-hatred." ("Also," she says, "that would be a GREAT album title." I'm inclined to agree on both counts.)

Let's just assume for a moment that it's true. In that case, listening to a good mixtape serves the purpose and listening to a bad mixtape probably mitigates the effect. So either I need to improve to the point where I am only ever doing good shows--5 years in, it doesn't seem likely--or, just to be safe, I need to find some other exercise jams. OR maybe it is exercise itself that is now expendable, since maybe I should be looking for ACTUAL relief from total self-hatred. In these latter two scenarios, I don't know when I would actually listen back to my program, since I rarely have large chunks of unoccupied time. So get ready for even more sporadic posting--either that, or more "who the hell knows what happened on this night" type posts. You have been warned!
