Tonight you should:
Play music louder. Break some speakers. Call an old friend. Dish out high-fives. Buy a nice bottle of booze and share it. Walk down some new streets. Jump in some water. Tip generously. Make outrageous plans for the summer. Eat a Tornado. Watch a bad movie. Pick up a guitar. And/or pass out on the couch with the TV on.
Like a lot of other people, I’ve been listening to the new Japandroids album this past week, and it’s done a pretty fine job of turning me into a big sap (like a lot of other people). But I’m fine with that, because being sappy and cloyingly sincere is better than being overly self-serious or cynical. Anyway, you don’t have to do any of these things – they’re just ideas! – but I hope you have a solid night worth remembering all the same.
