i mentioned this trend a few months ago, but it's only worsened since then. my signal-to-noise ratio is getting steadily worse. and i'm still failing to make meaningful connections with people, old or new. maybe i'm following the wrong people. or maybe the medium is simply not up to the task for me.

Twenty-twenty-twenty four hours to go
Ghost cow is so elated
Nothin' to do, nowhere to go
Ghost cow is so elated

Get them to a grange
Hurry hurry hurry, before they find a plain
I can't control my hooves
I can't control my brain, oh no
