Oddly Chipper on a Monday

I suppose it's stating the ridiculously obvious to say "I hate Mondays". Isn't there even a song about that? But I really, truly do. More so, perhaps, than many people. I need only look at my paper journal to see how consistent the pattern is. But this morning, I'm bloody Mary Sunshine for some reason. It's appalling. Bounce!

Maybe it's because I can feel the approach of Spring despite the cold. Maybe it's the sleep deprivation kicking up my serotonin levels. Who can say.

Anyway, down to business. I have two text-heavy icons today. The first is the long-promised Jareth icon, for my dearest eac:



It's perhaps a little drab, but I think it's legible. Hope you like it, sweetie!

This one is for corwynj. The interest is, obviously, H.P. Lovecraft.



I actually have some Photoshop brushes made from photos and silhouettes of old Howard Phillips, so I considered going with that. But, ultimately, Cthulhu is such a crowd pleaser that I couldn't resist going that route. Use it in good health, Corweenie.

Oh, also...E managed to get our new scanner working last night, and I've got a biiiiig box of old photos. So if you have ever had a camera pointed at you in the last 15 years, you might want to start thinking about bribes, just in case it turns out that we aren't above blackmail.

Just in case.

Anyway I can get you to share the HPL brushes? You can email me the link to them, if you still have it of course, at fishink @ wanderingtribes.com

Sure thing. I'll have to send it to you this evening, though. Can't recall where I found it, so I'll have to look at the files. Stay tuned.

"I don't like Mondays" was actually about a shool shooting. It happened here in California in the 70's, a girl just randomly shot and killed 8 grade school children and two teachers. When the police found her, and asked her, horrified - why she had done it, she said, "I don't like Mondays." Apparently she was just bored.

There was quite a bit of controversy about the song, which people at the time felt glorified or celebrated the deaths of innocents. Personally, I was deeply skeeved out when I heard the story.

Right. E mentioned something about that to me, but I didn't recall him mentioning that it was based on a true story.

You know, sometime in the 80s, a relative of one of the kids killed by Ian Brady and Myra Hindley heard the Smith's song "Suffer Little Children" in a bar, and totally lost it. He filed suite, saying that it was taking advantage of the atrocities. Morrisey insisted that it was a tribute to the victims, and a way of dealing with his own profound feelings about what happened. Apparently, they eventually settled out of court, after Morrisey convinced the guy of his sincerity.

"Oh Manchester, so much to answer for..." Cripes, that is one eerie, heartrending song. Gives me goose-bumps every time.
