Man I just heard the awesomely funny and always profound”What do you do with a Drunken Sailor?”Shane Fucking MacGowan people!!!! OH this guy…a living miracle.More saturated with booze and drugs than even Keith Richards-just not quite as long. I think when he does finally go, he should be sainted,and im definitely goin to start a petition and then address the The Pope . He will resist,but if the world demands that Shane MacGowan be awarded Sainthood ,and compels him to like… conference call with the Holy Trinity ,i think this could happen….Those three are hard to catch together at one time,but I think once the words out that its concerning Shane Macgowan,theyll come in to have a summit about this matter…Everyone knows God loves The Pogues.I was seriously fucked up earlier and listening to the man just really makes me smile.Usually I choose to pile on the angst with like…Radiohead or the indomitably miserable (genius)Morrissey…something guaranteed to inflame the sadness,like.Thats how I usually do-im a shameless wallow-er and frankly ,a gifted basker (I might’ve mentioned this before,but I could compete professionally in the self- destructive art of self- pity) but its not just drama for the sake of drama…I try to push it to a mini psychotic break point, so I can get it out and reset,so to speak. Like Electro shock therapy,but with extreme narcissism and strategic repeat listening of “Mad World” instead of th blast of electricity….) Not tonight,though:) I advise anyone who might need a lift in spirits to listen to The Pogues. Its extremely effective.
