Heading into Christmas, I thought, “Now’s the perfect time to take a week, maybe two, off from the blog. Go ahead, just say it straight out and be done with it.” Of course I didn’t, and here I am on a Friday morning with three, four, maybe five pieces partly completed, and no sense of how to finish any of them before morning madness takes hold.
The holidays have definitely messed me up a little bit. I’m sorry to say I haven’t been writing much of anything over the last few weeks. It’s not writer’s block or anything like that, it’s just been a matter of time. It’s funny how this writing thing gets in you, and how out of whack you can feel when you don’t have the time to do it as much as you’d like.
So there is no real post today. Instead, you get this video from Of Monsters and Men. It’s funny how these things work. One of you posted this on your blog, I want to say in the spring. I remember seeing it, and I loved it. A few weeks ago, something put me in mind of this song, but I had no idea who the band was, the name of the song, or who posted it. I scoured a couple of likely places but could not find it. Then, yesterday, while checking out a non-writing message board I frequent: There it was.
I’m not huge on video music, to be honest. I was around when MTV was born, when people went gaga over crummy music because it had really cool videos. But I love this video, I can’t explain why, it’s really fun, and I like the song a lot. Enjoy your weekend. I’m putting myself into the shop for a realignment.
