Gloom is easy. Guns melt butter; swords disembowel plough shares, the memory of a 7th grade humiliation will forever burn brighter than yesterday’s triumph.

Three hundred and sixty-five of them. Songs, photographs, videos, memories, dreams and more. Some will be short. Some might be very long. Size and shape matter far less than the idea: A little ray of light passing across the sky. Grab it if you can. It might take you somewhere.
Today we begin with this shard of the thin, wild mercury: Bob Dylan, in his role as host of the Theme Time Radio Hour (currently out of production but still running on Sirius/XM) reciting the ten most popular New Year’s resolutions, with commentary.
See? It’s easy. Not even 12 hours into 2013 and we already have 52 seconds of fun.
