The Midwinter Lull: Basementcast #9

It Always Rains In My Town

Although he’s from Georgia, Abner Jay’s I’m So Depressed rings true in the PNW in the middle of winter. Rain is the rule, dark is the law and everyone is just trying to get along, trying to make it to the spring, or some sunny local somewhere south. The holiday gift giving, blog list-making, eggnog induced halcyon haze of December has long since passed and were just tying to get our vitamin D deprived bodies to some more daylight and ultraviolet bliss.
Well, face up man, it’s the middle of January and things ain’t gettin’ better for a long while. So, what do you do? It’s quite simple. You inject yourself with a vial full of basementcast, a big bottle of something and you hibernate until spring.
