I’m currently stuck in my apartment in Montreal, the course I’m teaching this semester transitioned online for the foreseeable future. Since so many of us will be socially isolated, I thought it would be appropriate to share more mixes than usual.
But Everyone Is Bored was made at the request of my friend Sam, who felt that this extraordinary experience we are undergoing called for something bespoke. I’ve heard that Contagion has been popular on streaming services lately, but I instead reached for Albert Camus‘ La Peste, or The Plague. Part I tells us that tout le monde s’ennuie,”  “everyone is bored,” which felt like the appropriate affect for what may turn out to be the early days of our turn inward.

The truth is that everyone is bored, and devotes himself to cultivating habits. Our citizens work hard, but solely with the object of getting rich. Their chief interest is commerce, and their chief aim in life is, as they call it, ‘doing business.’…
