i drove home in the California dusk
i could feel the alcohol inside of me hum
pictured the look on my stepfather’s face
ready for the bad things to come
i down shifted
as i pulled into the driveway
the motor screaming out
stuck in second gear
the scene ends badly
as you might imagine
in a cavalcade of anger and fear

there will be feasting and dancing
in Jerusalem next year

i am going to make it through this year
if it kills me
i am going to make it though this year
if it kills me

This Year – The Mountain Goats. 

Happy new year. Fuck 2013 right in its ass. 

Catwalk on a hot thin roof


As in, The Catwalk on Princes Street in Cork burned down last night.

As one proper Corkonian put it:

Oh my god the late 90s and early 2000s are gone altogether now no catwalk and no Henry’s anymore 

And of course Twitter was equally sympathetic: 

RIP Candle In The Wind ‘014.
