Anywhere is OK as long as it’s far away

tokyo highway nightMy favorite thing lately is to listen to music as quietly as possible. This works best in the car, where the sound of the road drowns out most of the frequencies. For the first 10-20 seconds of a song all you can hear is the drums, and then eventually an errant guitar or vocal note gives the song away. Then your brain starts to fill in the parts that you can’t actually hear, and you start singing along to the best of your ability. And then it gets to the chorus and it turns out you were singing in the wrong key the whole time. Which is kind of symbolic of life.

That is my favorite thing lately.
