Taking a day off to go do a bunch of errands, appointments and miscellaneous adulting, so some death metal is in order because I need to get my ass in gear. Another one of my metal top 10 from 2018, Bloodbath’s “The Arrow of Satan is Drawn”. @officialbloodbath @peacevillerecords 🤘🏽🖤🤓 #metal#heavymetal
I was talking with a friend who’s in early sobriety yesterday and is having a hard time after coming off of a relapse. When I was new, once the physical discomfort of detox passed, there was a much longer period of feeling like crap—mentally. If you’re new to sobriety and reading this and you’re struggling: it gets better. You WILL feel better. Some tips for conducting the crazy train so that it doesn’t go off the rails: 1. Ask for help. You don’t need to do this alone. Therapy, 12 step groups, rational recovery, your doctor, treatment centers, religious or ...
Happy birthday, Cookie Mueller. ♓️ 🖤 She was an actress, a muse, a writer, an outlaw and one of my early idols. “Fortunately I am not the first person to tell you that you will never die. You simply lose your body. You will be the same except you won't have to worry about rent or mortgages or fashionable clothes. You will be released from sexual obsessions. You will not have drug addictions. You will not need alcohol. You will not have to worry about cellulite or cigarettes or cancer or AIDS or venereal disease. You will be free.” #cookiemueller ...

It’s Work From Home Wednesday, and here’s part of my birthday record haul: Ravi Shankar’s “The Sounds of India” (1968). I’ve never seen this on vinyl, so I was very excited to find it. #vinyl#vinylcollection

A happy belated birthday (2/25) to fellow Piscean (and I believe now fellow Austinite)John Doe. I just got to see The Flesheaters on Saturday and it was fucking dreamy and perfect and weird and lovely in every way. If they come to your area, get a ticket as fast as you can. I’m excited to see X again in May! ♓️ #johndoe#x

It’s work from home Wednesday, and today’s first choice is High on Fire’s “Electric Wizard”. One of my top 10 metal records of 2018–I never get sick of them. So consistently just fucking excellent. And I was not-so-secretly glad that they beat Trivium for a Grammy. I hope Matt Pike is on the mend and that they can go back on tour soon. Thanks @flurryandrew for turning me on on to these guys at our Zu reunion. 🖤 #metal#heavymetal

I had a dream last night that I was a housewife. I was locked in a huge, fancy, open plan house and I couldn’t get out. Everything was very white and very clean, and I was crawling around on the floor, chugging Pinot Grigio from this wine glass that never emptied...in the dream I was upset that I was a housewife and kept trying to escape. But I was more upset that I was drinking and was dreading telling my sponsor that I had relapsed—but I still couldn’t stop drinking the wine. I woke up in a cold sweat, looking ...

Sally Dige. Another part of my dark listening haul from @endofanear last week. It’s as if the 80’s never stopped, and I mean that in the best way possible. #vinyl#vinylcollection
