Ryuichi Sakamoto, "Andata" (Electric Youth Remix)

If you were surprised to learn that it’s actually Thursday today I wouldn’t blame you: This week—all weeks now—has already gone on so long that it’s a fool’s errand to keep track. All you can do is have faith that eventually it will come to an end, either because of simple chronology or the nuclear holocaust they keep promising. In any event, here is some music for the morning. Play it about 7000 times and it should get you to noon. Enjoy.
