Can’t pretend this was a great holiday.
Crying guests. Crying servers. Texts about crying.
Can’t take any more. Thanks.
The trappings of the whole holiday are worthless and I wish I didn’t even take part in any of it because there was so much crying and unhappiness. Who wants to spread that around? Not this Vulcan! (Because, you know…if I have to spread around feelings, can’t they at least be good ones?)
Anyway. I am behind on music again, so now I must post 2 every day to ensure I have them all posted by year’s end.
#12: The Cure–Cold
Alternative/Goth…I heard some time ago that they no longer consider themselves Goth, but, come on. When this is still floating about it’s hard to argue:
Man…I just like all of this song. The ominous organ notes at the beginning…the sinister synths…the tingly ice cube noises. They’re great. And Robert Smith is pretty great. So much angst.
#11: Colony 5–Like Leaves
Goth/industrial again. Twinklies.
I like the images in this song…wintery seas, hibernating creatures, autumn leaves…
The sentiment, too. I feel like this a lot. Like everything that made sense to me is suddenly gone, and what else is there to do but creep away and hide? Or die?
