Artwork of the Day: Snowslide (by Griffith Foxley)


by Griffith Foxley

This is from 1950 and I really hope that it’s not a story about what’s about to happen down here over the next few days. It’s supposed to snow today. Last year, it snowed at this time and there were people who had to go days without power. That was not a fun snowslide.

This cover was done by Griffith Foxley.

Music Video of the Day: The Girls Are Fighting by Bloc Party (2022, dir by ????)


But why are the girls fighting!?

Seriously, it’s a strange song and a strange video.  Myself, I don’t have the slightest idea how to throw a punch.  When I was like 5, I was crying because some bigger girls were bullying me and my grandmother told me that I needed to break their noses.  She didn’t really explain how I was supposed to do that, though.  And I’m glad that she didn’t because I don’t believe in violence.  At heart, I’m a pacifist.  Plus, I actually broke my nose once and it hurt like Hell.  I wouldn’t wish that type of pain on anyone, other than a certain ex-boyfriend and the two bitches who ran a friend of mine off twitter this past weekend.  That’s all I’ll say about that.  I don’t believe in spiritual karma but I do believe in karma as a self-fulfilling prophecy.  And if you’re so empty and foul-hearted that you have no trouble attacking a stranger who was just trying to talk about something that he enjoyed …. well, then you’re pretty much destined to be miserable no matter what happens in your life.  They say most people’s destinies have been determined by the time they turn 5.  So, if you’re reading this right now, get used to whatever your life is like right now.

If I was in the ring, it would probably be like round one on this video, a bunch of punches and jabs that don’t actually make contact.  I have a feeling that it would hurt to punch someone, which is one reason why I don’t have any interest in doing that.  My hands are too pretty for bruises.

A friend of mine in Scotland turned me onto Bloc Party.  I like them a lot.  Their new album, Alpha Games, is set to be released on April 29th, 2022.

Enjoy!

its a riot at infernos, the filth are on their way
lusty casanova, been making eyes again
the bouncers made a movie, upload it to world star,
scrag fight!
she wants to send a message but she’s taken it too far
there’s blood on the dancefloor extensions on the bar
i blame the Jägermeister and the vodka lemonade
and now these boys can’t cope

hey! hey! hey!
the girls are fighting
and the boys can’t cope
hey! hey! hey!

how many times will he use the same lines?
how many maidens will fall for his charms?
how many? how many?
he crossed a line he should never have crossed
he promised her things

and the boys can’t cope
how many times will he use the same lines?
hey! hey!
