    When it’s dark, I listen to this.

    Like Nas is beyond comparison with Jay-Z, so is Megadeth far superior to Metallica. Which is sortof abide the point, but I do like to get my passive aggressive barbs in. And my name drops.
    Not certain Metallica albums. Two of them are great, J.

    Peace,

    They say that John Huston and Sam Peckinpah showed up at the same party, once, and Huston said to Peckinpah "There's only two plots to a motion picture. A man rides into town, or a man rides out of town."

    To which Peckinpah replied"NO!

    There's only one plot to a story:

    Death Approaches!"

    Hope the voyage is a long one.
    May there be many a summer morning when,
    with what pleasure, what joy,
    you come into harbors seen for the first time...

    Leave it to the Irish if you want a good song about mortality...
    If he ever drinks the brew of 10 tanna leaves, he will become a monster the likes of which the world has never seen
