happy new year

Of all fifty-two weeks in the year, the week between Christmas and New Year's Day strikes me as the strangest. It's a weird sort of purgatory. The most anticipated and commercialized holiday of the season has come and gone, somewhat anticlimactically, and all that's left is the gripping revelation of how frightening time is. Like, it keeps going by faster and faster, and it won't stop, not even for a tiny second to let you catch your breath, ever. It's rude, really. But never mind. Here are a few obligatory mp3s to help you cope with the mixed regret and excitement you're feeling over the demise of 2007 and the infinite possibilities of 2008.

mp3: "January" by Ravens & Chimes
mp3: "The New Year" by Death Cab for Cutie
mp3: "The Ice of Boston" by the Dismemberment Plan
mp3: "This Year" by the Mountain Goats
mp3: "Gonna Make It Through This Year" by Great Lake Swimmers
mp3: "The Start of Something" by Voxtrot
