N ot so long ago, I announced that I’d made an important psychological breakthrough, allowing me to outline the stages of concert excitement.

Well, in just 10 short months, I managed to deduce that people might experience a series of predictable stages in a relationship with an album as well. But while I compared the progression of emotions leading up to a concert to the stages of grief, this is more accurately compared to phases in a romantic relationship.

Allow me to explain, and hopefully you can better understand and navigate your next record relationship.

I’d like to take a moment (as I often do) to commit my 24-year-old angst to print.OH MY GAWD EVERYONE IS GETTING MARRIED.Stop it. I can’t.OK, fine. If you’re in love and all that, go for it. I’ll just silently judge your love while you silently judge my love (for the whiskey I will consume at your wedding reception). Just do me a favor and get a good DJ.The last time I was at a wedding, two things went wrong. One was that my date arrived late, missing dinner and insisting on running to McDonalds for food. The second was that as the reception was coming to an end, the DJ played Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believin’” and the complex arrangement of expletives I’d like to use to express my hatred for that song are pushing it even for this paper.Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy dancing and singing like a fool, especially at weddings, but bad DJs seem stuck on a handful of songs.

The forecast for this Saturday, according to my usually trustworthy iPhone is a high of 43 degrees and possible snow.I’m one of those people. I really don’t like fall. The days are getting shorter, everything is dying (and the leaves aren’t very pretty out here, sorry), chicks won’t shut up about pumpkin spice lattes, then we get this cold weather with useless snow I can’t ride a snowboard over.I’m bitching for a reason, hold tight. Despite this forecast that makes me seriously consider purchasing one of those sunlamps my friends’ Jewish grandmothers back in New York had, I will still be at the Chipotle Cultivate Festival.Here’s why: Best Coast, Grouplove, Okkervil River, Tennis, Zach Heckendorf.
