a man must test his mettle, in the crooked ol' world!

yup…Frances The Mute is still one of the best albums I have ever heard.

That perfect moment when you are driving home at 2:45 in the morning and your ipod is on shuffle and Look On Down From The Bridge by Mazzy Star comes on as you pull in and everything seems to be put into perspective in the most beautiful way.

I never ask for a picture, but I decided I wanted one with each member of Swans.
Two nights of sonically being punched in the face for 2 1/2 hours.
Best live shows I’ve seen in a long time.

SWANS at The Roxy, 9/10/14
This show kicked my ass, powerful live act to say the least. They are also nice as shit and hung around after to talk to fans

mother. fucking. swans. tonight. and. tomorrow. night. fuck-os

all i want in life’s a little bit of love to take the pain away
getting strong today
a giant step each day

Esben and the Witch - Marching Song

-very simple, very well executed.

t chart

scared of starting over
scared of walking away from friends again
scared of taking the big leap alone this time
scared of moving further from who i want to be with
scared of running into who i don’t want to be reminded of
scared of leaving the biggest cluster of family members i have in one place
excited to start over
excited to get the fuck out of here
excited to answer the voice calling me for years
excited to pack up and drive, knowing everything could collapse
excited to break this five year relationship with this room and walls i’ve grown to resent

"you see I’m what you call kinda a moral traffic light really, I’m like saying ‘RED! GO NO FURTHER! BUEY BUEY BUEY!’"
