The calm before the New Year


The quiet, dreamy period between Christmas and New Year is one of contemplation, as many of us come off from over-indulgence and/or over-stimulation, sliding into an almost trance-like ritual of assessing the specter of the year that passed and planning for the next. It can get foggy, like in some of the unusually warm days we've just experienced. But it also signals a potential rebirth and reset.
It's a good time.

Radiohead:

"Last year we were asked to write a theme tune for the Bond movie Spectre.Yes we were. It didn’t work out, but became something of our own, which we love very much.
As the year closes we thought you might like to hear it.
Merry Christmas. May the force be with you."


This robot thinks the purpose of life is to live forever.  Meanwhile, the robots are going to take over or something.

OR SOMETHING.

The Four:
* The year in review.
* 360 tour of Kingston.  Get your Google Cardboard, grandma.
* Full disclosure: Lowell is family, but he's got a book about Kingston, so
* The Gardiner tree that became the Rockefeller Christmas tree will become lumber for Habitat for Humanity projects.

Yesterday's Internet, Today! has been around for more than a year now. It's all your fault.
