Seven Days of Shane: Day 6 - Haunted w/ Sinéad O'Connor


Yeah, I know it's not the original version with Cait, but I couldn't really pass up posting this one, as we lost both of them this year.  


A few years ago, I read John Ajvide Lindqvist's novel Handling the Undead and really liked it. A very quiet, contemplative approach to the "living dead,"

As has become my custom, I'm posting this trailer here but not going to watch it . I want to go into this one not having the slightest idea what to expect from an adaptation.


Laura Cannell - Midwinter Processionals
The Pogues - Rum, Sodomy and the Lash
Opeth - Blackwater Park
Shane MacGowan and the Popes - The Snake
Opeth - Deliverance


Lots'a Disks. Let's see here...

• Six of Disks - Success
• Seven of Cups - Debauch
• Five of Disks - Worry

All the emotional fallout I've thus far been too busy to experience in having the connection to my childhood home severed at the age of 47 is about to come crashing down. My folks are out of the house in South Suburban Chicago and into the new one in Clarksville. There's still work to be done unpacking and arranging, but just being there all day yesterday unloading the last trailer of stuff or watching the movers bring in their furniture - furniture I've seen in the other house all my life - and set it up in foreign rooms was enough to create a sort of disorientation in me that feels a lot like what the Debauch card looks like. Not poison, but murky. Murky emotions that the Success of finally finishing this months-long project has kickstarted.

First world problems, but problems nonetheless.
