What is one to do with this dreaded circumstance? It has been happening far too long with no indication that it is being addressed by our good Roon doctors or if there will ever be a cure. They say humor is the best medicine, but there is nothing funny about being deep in the throws of musical bliss to have it all cut short by the intermittent yet consistent skipping of tracks since the dawn of 1.8.
With this lack of a cure, I’ve decided to turn to a release that will help ease my frustration by sharing the ride I take every day, often every hour, that never occurred before 1.8. Perhaps it is my old age. When I was just a young 1.7 I never had this problem. Now I’m an old 1.8 I am frustrated all the time. Do I need a pill?
Irony is a funny thing and I’ll start off with a nice slow funky song I love by Angus Stone from his Broken Brights album and the song is called “End of the World.” I LOVE this song, and as it came up in my playlist I was grooving with it so nicely until BANG, the track stopped and off we went to the next song. How frustrating! For any of you who have not heard this song, please give it a try. It is great. Hopefully it will play all the way through for you.
This series of ruminations will certainly continue. I’ve already got more lined up. I won’t do it for every song that gets interrupted half way through. I don’t have time to post that often…and I hope and pray that the Roon doctors will fix this soon so I can stop the meds and enjoy the intimacy of my music once again. If not, well, it just might be the end of the world.
