    I didn’t realize you were doing a Wed. Music Post, so I also threw up a half-assed one that had been sitting around for a while. Sorry.

    I had a Metallica cello cover stuck in my head for a while. Some things just work, I guess.

    These two are making me smile this week:

    (My wife and I have taken to replying to our daughter ‘haters gonna hate’ every time she tells us about some drama at school)

    (Meghan Trainor’s album is really good by the way)
