And now, a brief word on a topic I don’t much like to discuss on this site: politics. Discussions of a political nature tend to lead to a lot of fighting between persons of different views, even if they support the same political party or candidate. I’m not going to dive into my own personal political preferences, but I do feel it necessary to ensure that all eligible American citizens go to their local polling place to vote tomorrow. We live in a democracy that allows people to choose their leaders, and by that same token get rid of the ones that don’t do their job correctly or to our own liking. Don’t waste the opportunity to cast your vote in what coule be one of the most important elections of our time. I don’t care who you vote for, just so long as you do it. If you think that one person can’t make a difference and that voting is a pointless exercise, I couldn’t disagree with you more. Of course if you’re not registered to vote by now, I guess I can’t help you. For everyone else, if you need to find your local polling place, there’s a simple website where you can find your area voting location. I don’t know about all of you, but I’m looking forward to avoiding my TV and social media tomorrow, due to the sheer excess of partisan rhetoric that goes on. But while I dislike the progress and the talk, I more than advocate for exercising your own right to vote. So please kick your laziness to the curb and participate. Okay, that’s all I’ll say. Let’s talk Pick Your Poison for this Monday. Recommended tracks today come from Bromheads, Circle, Lenny Smith, Neil Nathan Inc. and PANOS. There’s a pretty lengthy (30+ minutes) single stream of music from Chromatics that they’re calling “Running From the Sun,” a mixtape of sorts collecting all the outtakes from their latest album Kill For Love.
