I can still hear the sounds of those Methodist bells
I’d taken the cure and had just gotten through
Staying up for days in the Chelsea Hotel
Writing “Sad-Eyed Lady of the Lowlands” for you

This.

3ish years ago?
This is the night we first met Bill. 

I met two really great people 3-ish years ago. I hope the food was good-ish.
I’m beyond excited to be at their wedding in a week.
These guys are aces.

The Shins — Simple Song

"I know that things can really get rough,
When you go it alone.
Don’t go thinking you gotta be tough,
And bleed like a stone.
Could be there’s nothing else in our lives so critical,
As this little home!”

The Shins are good for at least one song like this per album.

Maria  »  Blondie

Won't come in from the rain
She's oceans running down the drain
Blue as ice and desire

"She walks like she don’t care
Walking on imported air”

Unpopular opinion: Best Blondie song.

The version of hell that I administer

Has a special wing for those who decline to follow the rules of grammar based on aesthetics. 

The fact that you “don’t like the way it looks” does not mean it’s not a comma splice. 

Tagged: this is not 'nambut it is why the oxford comma is badin that comma proliferation makes it harder for people to use them correctlyand they do not need the hurdlebecause 95 percent of people have no idea how to use commas

Don’t know about you guys, but July has been a real kick in the dick

And while I hold no especial high hopes for August, I know the last six weeks have been a disaster, so I’ll take the comparative optimism.

Dinner Tonight: 

Beer-battered Sea Trout, Pickled Onion, Smoked Gouda Grits. 

The thought here, for both of you who care, was that the pickled onions stand in for the vinegar in the usual fish and chips. And the chips are represented by … shit, man — I’m just trying to get dinner on the table before 10 pm. There are no chips, representational or otherwise. Open a bag of Lay’s or something. Do I have to do EVERYTHING around here? FUCK.
