Started a new book last night, can’t remember where it was recommended but probably Chuck Klosterman.  “Tenth of December” by George Saunders.  Won a bunch of awards, including New York Times 10 Best Books of 2013, according to the cover.

It’s mediocre at best.  A bunch of short stories about unpleasant people doing unpleasant things.  

To accompany my reading I’m playing a new Pandora station I created, consisting of minimalist “shoegaze” ambient electronic music.  This stuff has no ambition, no redeeming characteristics, no ah-ha moments.  It’s eminently forgettable.

I’m retired and this is the Trump era.  What the fuck do I care.

Hell, that's life in a nutshell, isn't it?
