RIP Vic Chesnutt

As Hannah wrote yesterday, Vic Chesnutt was announced to be in a coma yesterday. Checking my tweetfeed while prepping dishes for Christmas dinner tonight, I saw the New York Times just reported the very unfortunate news of his passing. In that post, they quote from a song in his very critically acclaimed At The Cut, "When you touched a friend of mine I thought I would lose my mind/ But I found out with time that really, I was not ready, no no, cold death/ Oh death, I'm really not ready."

After the jump, listen to "Yesterday, Tomorrow and Today," a solemn, achingly beautiful song whose refrain, "Life is a time machine," is echoing profoundly out of my computer speakers right now.
