Spent Christmas alone this year. Just me, Haibane Renmei and Bright Future (which was amazingly good by the way).
Haus Arafna – Paranoia.
It struck me yesterday at some point that for some reason you assume that you’re the only one being alone on Christmas. Which probably isn’t true, but it’s probably also the reason that it’s so hard on those who actually are alone (involuntarily so). It seems like everyone else in the world has got someone. Like the old Future Sound Of London song: Everyone in the world is doing something without me.
Karl Runau – Hope for your understanding.
Not for me though. I simply enjoy avoiding (as much as is possible) any kind of empty tradition for tradition’s sake. Sitting alone watching movies on Christmas eve feels like a small victory.
Hypnoskull – No Chance Left.
It’s a voctory (very small, but still) against tradition, against commercialism/capitalism and it’s prophet, Coca Cola’s own Santa Clause.
Alec Empire – Overdose.
Ok, that’s it. Time for breakfast (which, taking place after 18.00, is also a small voctory in itself)…
Current 93 – Crowleymass.
