I can’t believe that it has been just short of a year since Les Bods, a band out of Brighton, England, sent me their first single, “People.” I also can’t believe it has been a year since this COVID-19 shitshow began. It has been a tough one for so many people on so many levels, which is why the band’s song title (lyrics aside) seems apropos for me right now.
My heart goes out to those who have lost loved ones, whether to COVID or not. My thanks go out to all essential workers. And, to lighten things up, I’m especially grateful to my local grocers who’ve ensured that toilet paper is never scarce and hand sanitizer stays well below €1,00 per ounce. More surprisingly, I’m appreciative that having to switch gears from tourism writing introduced me to Kate Beckinsale’s pussy (nothing wrong with that), which always makes me laugh.
More seriously, though, I’m indebted to artists like Les Bod who send me tracks. The explosion of creativity this year has been overwhelming, and the number of songs submitted to me even more so. I have a hell of a lot to catch up to play, and work to do.
Thanks out to artists and listeners for your patience!
