Overcast, misty, cold. Currently, it's 44˚F, with the windchill at 39˚F. I've already been out, and I can report back that there is nothing whatsoever about this day to distinguish it from January, and certainly not from December, not in the quality of light, not in temperature, not in the smell or taste of the air, not in the presence or absence of foliage, not in the way that people are dressed, and certainly not in how it strikes my mind. It is midwinter out there. In Birmingham, it's 64˚F, the high will be 79˚F, and they've been greening for weeks. I am only a few hours and five or six hundred dollars away from home.

I'm sick, and I have no idea how to make it from one end of this shitty day to the other.

This photograph, taken on Thayer Street, says anything you might have needed to know about yesterday in Providence:

Resistance, Peace, and Compassion,

Dear Sweet Filthy World
Subterranean should have them in this week and I can't wait to get my Sweet Limited Edition of Dear Sweet Filthy World. Yeah!

I saw last night that the trees here are beginning to bloom, but I don't blame them for being wary after last week's slush storm.

I am only a few hours and five or six hundred dollars away from home.

I hope you can get home soon, then, if only for a little while.

When I was reading Agents of Dreamland, I kept thinking about the movie Matango and its use of fungi. If you haven't seen it, I think you would enjoy it. Don't let the opening credits fool you, it's quite a sinister movie, but at the same time keep in mind that it is 1960s Japanese horror. I found it to be far superior to any other kaiju movie I have seen and genuinely horrific in its concept.
