It’s impossible for Thanksgiving weekend to feel like Thanksgiving when it’s 70 degrees out and sunny and you randomly found yourself last night in a vaguely “trendy” Los Angeles bar watching a fedora-clad couple make out like they were trying to empirically decipher what the other had for Thanksgiving. (Seriously, do these people find each other on online fedora dating services?)

To palliate my sorrows after this grotesque incident and from my trytophan overdose, I’ve been listening to reggae all morning. Not in the mood to write anything right now, so I’ll save the blather. I hope you all had a fantastic Thanksgiving and that these lilting sunny-day jams make everything a bit warmer wherever you are. Godspeed. Or something.
