WELL GEE 2016, JUST WHEN I THOUGHT YOU COULDN’T GET ANY WORSE… YOU GO AND TAKE LEONARD COHEN TOO?? DIDJA WANNA KILL KURT COBAIN AND JOHN LENNON AGAIN WHILE YOU’RE AT IT? UGH, I HATE YOU, YOU’RE THE ABSOLUTE WORST YEAR IN ALL OF HUMAN EXISTENCE!!!! YOU, 2016, HAVE NO COUTH. NONE.
Yes dear readers, 10 months to the day following Bowie’s death on 1/10, on 11/10 we learn that Leonard left us, too. You may recall my wondering at Leonard outliving Bowie, but feeling comforted that I still had one living musician of the two most impactful artists on my life. Between this and the Election two days ago, I just don’t know that surviving cancer, again, this year was really all that great an outcome. Excuse me, I have to go listen to “Tower of Song” a billion jillion times while I ugly cry into laundry I should do already but just can’t find the energy to.
*sigh… I honestly hate everything about this year.
