I need order in my life – a pinch of predictability, a dash of know-how, a bit of regularity – which, in the end, all pretty much adds up to A Whole Load of Stability.
Or so I hope.
In my world, the cute petrol kiosk cashier knows my name; my credit card applications get approved at instant-noodle speed; my inbox automatically subjects spam email to total annihilation; good fantasy novels drop onto my lap for free; recently-released movies are beamed right to my screen; the useless shuffle mode is made away with to satiate my humdrum music preferences.
And so, it is always a whole album at one go, from the first track right down to the last. No intermissions, no interruptions, no skipping, no clipping – just press play and let it flow.
Then you will realise, just who matters the most.
(For now, according to my last.fm charts – it is The National. Ah, major love.)
