The viaduct closes for 10 days today, beginning the inevitable trudge towards tearing it down. It is the reason why we left our West Seattle home, and the loss of one of the best views in the city. On that maudlin, reflective note: I have gone deep down a Spotify hole the past few months, since it was launched in the US. I make a playlist at least once a week, and they fall into two basic categories: ones that will motivate me to do something [ie, clean the house] and ones that are TOTAL BUMMERS.

A few favorites:


Thump is roughly about the inevitable loss of everything [HELLO, BUMMER] and as such I dedicate it to my sweet viaduct – it was like rolling the dice every time you drove across it, but man was it a sweet view.
