I think a little mood music is in order. I have chosen a blues-y tune by Emilie Autumn: “Hollow Like My Soul.” You will remember Emilie from my earlier post on the wild violinist, her Bloody Crumpets, and “Dead is the New Alive,” which is a kind of zombie anthem. But this is more of a lullaby-lullaby-hush-hush-die-die song, and I know you will enjoy it.
It does make things seem a little hopeless. But why not? Aren’t they?
