Year 12

January of 2012 I began the Sweet and Sour Variety Hour. Now we begin it’s 12th season.

Generally, I like to deliver an accompanying soundtrack to what I imagine others are also experiencing at 8 in the morning; it’s early, I’m rising. Things are slowly moving, my ability to reckon with waking life increases with every stretch and sip of coffee. By 9am, I’m ready to party! The selections I’ve agonized over reflect this experience. That’s the idea, anyhow.
