Tom Waits – Little Drop of Poison
I used to really like Halloween. I really did. There was a time when I labeled it as my favorite holiday, beating out Stuff-Your-Fucking-Face Fest next month and Give-Me-A-Thing-So-I-Feel-Important-Mas after that. Then last year the usual collection of everyone losing their shit on Tumblr for October/Halloween reached a critical mass, and I kind of felt like it was too over-saturated and for the first time in years I was indifferent toward the 31st. This year feels a bit different, though. I’ve cut down my Tumblr time and it feels a little bit refreshed now that it hasn’t been jammed down my throat everyday. It feels good. Tonight, I decided to get into the spirit and brought along a tune from one of the masters that is just delightfully creepy. It’s a melancholy song about loss that is only slightly tangential to the celebration this week, but sometimes the feeling just works.
Fine, I’ll stop the Scrooge-ery. Happy Halloween! Be safe and make good decisions.
