    Every month of 2019 we released a song. Some of the songs were written the month before they were released, while some songs were written as early as 2009. Each month, Eli Wengrin made a cover for the single, and I wrote a little essay to go along with the song. In early 2020, we asked our friends if they had any art or words they would like to share that was, in some way, related to Calendar. All of the contributions have been compiled into this book.

    Looking back at the beginning of the year, it’s hard for me to remember exactly who I was when writing the first entry for Toursong. Whatever sense of identity that I feel today isn’t the same as what I felt a year ago; In a sense, I am a “new person.”

    If Sam from a year ago is a different person from Sam as I am today, there is no reason that I (today) should attribute any more weight to their (me a year ago) wants and desires than I would to any other person who I know. Right now, I relate to a lot of friends more than I do to my past self. I am equal to my peers.

    While making the XTC album “Skylarking”, Virgin Records told Andy Partridge, the band leader, that he had to make the record with an American producer in an attempt to tap into the American market, and eventually Todd Rundgren was hired for the job. The record is amazing, one of my top 5 favorite albums of all time, but the story goes that Andy and Todd butted heads throughout the entire recording process. Their egos were both too big. Now, Andy hates the album. He claims that Todd completely fucked it up at the last second by “reversing the polarity” of the tape, something that would in practice have an undetectable effect on sonic quality.

    There is a song on Skylarking, “A Man Who Sailed Around His Soul.” The song is about a man who tried to “find himself,” but he actually found nothing.

    "Now he sits all alone
    And it's no place like home
    It's empty skin
    A bag to keep life's souvenirs in"

    Ego is a sham. Identity is a sham. Don’t try to find yourself, find others.

Track Name: Young
These precious times spent with you
A I keep on thinking what my life could have been
Assume that day
I was kinda afraid
And the best thing that I ‘ve ever done was on its way

Me and you that May
We were doing great
God I couldn’t wait
To get home from work
Just to make songs with you

Those good old days lived with you
And I think those memories will never fade away
Bologna in spring is
such a beautiful city
I was 22
And i will not forget that May

We were so young
Let’s go back to the start
We were so young
Let’s go back to the start

And happy birthday
To my best friend Samuel
Sam’s super nice
I wish you a good life!
