The Spin I’m In: Soulstice Greetings

Korla Pandit

A couple of years ago a friend of mine lit a winter solstice candle in his apartment. He then went down to his parking space to clean out his car. After getting rid of all of the trash, he looked up at his apartment building to see smoke billowing out of his windows. He burned his whole building down. What’s my point here? I don’t know, just don’t do anything stupid this season for gods sake.

You simply must check out the last track in the playlist this week. It’s a strange Christmas greeting from the Beatles to their fan club members from 1968 featuring Tiny Tim performing Nowhere Man. Gods bless us, everyone.
