We’ve been Pavloved into liking summer but heartbreak doesn’t take the season off. Maybe it’s the hellish weather, maybe it’s the heightened expectations, maybe your ex got married, maybe you didn’t get that promotion, maybe you wish you didn’t get that promotion, maybe it’s unprecedented levels of pink flamingos on your feeds. July wasn’t a happy month but here’s to August.   
For every Chester Bennington death, there’s radios playing Chester Bennington for hours on end. For every Moderat announcing its separation, there’s a Bjork announcing a new album. Bawl your eyes out.
