Right now, outside my window, thousands upon thousands of juicy buds are aching to unfurl. Newness in electric green, swaying violently as they contend with the changing wind. A harrowing moment to emerge, to open yourself up again, to take on a new shape, but that’s the way of Spring, right?

This is an episode of Something Like that looks at newness in its revelatory, ritualistic form, but also in its anxiety, the stress and also the exhilaration of meeting a moment, of opening oneself up to a moment.

  • As always, thank you to my dearest friend Roger 3000 for providing Something Like’s jingle
  • The music under my voice today is Larkin’s O’Cean (1980)
  • I also wanted to take this chance to say that I’m guest hosting an episode of WFMU’s Radio Row on April 25. Check it out on Sunday April 25th from 5 – 6pm (EDT) on WFMU | 91.1, 90.1, 91.9 FM & wfmu.org
