Happy Columbus Day, my fellow Americans. Today is the day we “celebrate” Christopher Columbus and his journey to the West Indies, which ultimately resulted in his stumbling upon America. Given that the explorer had a penchant for slavery, disease and general whoremongering, I find it somewhat amusing that we have a holiday in his honor. I’d prefer to honor the film director Chris Columbus on a day like today, for making classic films like “Home Alone” and “Mrs. Doubtfire”. Maybe that’s just me. So let’s tackle a Monday edition of Pick Your Poison. Tracks I can recommend today come from Bad Vibrations, The Hours, Mutiny Mutiny, Silver Wren, Terry Malts, and We Can’t Enjoy Ourselves. And hey, in the Soundcloud section, Miracle Fortress’ remix of Snow Patrol is probably better than the non-remixed version of Snow Patrol.
