We're not ashamed to say it: sometimes we get a little lonely. We're also not ashamed to say that we occasionally imbibe. And so, OK, we'll even admit—with only a soupçon of embarrasment—that we sometimes imbibe a lot. Like, buckets.
With a little more than a twinge of guilt, we'll go so far as to confess that the loneliness is actually rather frequent, deep, and abiding. We compensate mostly with three of our favorite vices: dissonance, genre-smashing, and compositions for unaccompanied solo instruments. However, we'd be lying if we said liquor didn't have a role to play as an additional compensating vice. Put two and two together, and yes, we spend an inordinate amount of our time playing alone, and drinking alone.
