Depression

Is there anything more dreadful than this election? We all know Donald Trump is going to lose, but he’s making sure that Americans all lose by stirring up these deplorables who would love nothing more than just to burn everything down like Sherman’s march to Atlanta.

On Saturday I ended up chugging through Season 2 of You’re the Worst which had one of the best television depictions of depression I’d ever seen. While it’s not exactly what I’m going through right now, I can empathize with it. Watching it really killed me.

I got through most of Zadie Smith’s White Teeth this weekend. I went a little overboard last week, so I have four books coming at me from the library this week. Jeff in Venice, Death in Varanasi by Geoff Dyer. Skippy Dies by Paul Murray. Crusing Utopia: The Then and There of Queer Futurity by Jose Esteban Munoz. The Underground Railroad by Colson Whitehead.

In Vegas from Wednesday to Friday.
