The Caustic Window – We are all Spotifucked…

We are all Spotifucked…

There are mornings when you hear the driving mid-winter Berlin rain hitting the window with the violence of a hornet’s nest that has just been forced into an unwanted romantic tryst with a blunderbuss. Not some half-assed “GET OFF MY LAWN!” buckshot awakening of the small-town North American persuasion, but a proper capital M morning that anyone in their right mind would declare the day a complete and total non-starter.
