Pick Your Poison: Thursday 10-11-12
Oh, let’s have a rather pointless discussion for today’s Pick Your Poison intro. Glancing at the calendar, I can’t help but notice that it’s 10/11/12. These sequential date things have been going on once a year since 1/2/03, and after 2014 there won’t be any more of them for close to another 100 years. In that regard, we should make the most of such moments and create some new memories. The date is easy enough to remember, so you’ll never forget that time you did that thing on 10/11/12. It’s National Coming Out day as well, which can be a monumental event in a person’s life, telling family and friends about your sexual orientation. If that describes you and it’s something you’re ready for, I encourage you to do that today. Really you can do that any day though, and it’ll still be a very special occasion. Or things could go horribly wrong and your family disowns you. That’d actually be special too, but for all the wrong reasons. For the rest of us, I’m sure that if we can’t come up with something exciting to do on a Thursday night besides go to work or sit at home watching the Vice Presidential debate, we’ll still have until November 12, 2013 to figure out something wild to do then. You know what though? Maybe today is the day you discover your new favorite band via Pick Your Poison. Let me recommend a few tracks for you from Andy Burrows, Fake Blood, Hank & Cupcakes, Purity Ring (ft. Danny Brown) and Torkelsen. In the Soundcloud section don’t miss audio streams from Benjamin Francis Leftwich, Ducktails and Yellow Ostrich.
