Flogging Molly

I realized I had really fallen behind on updating you guys on my punk projects so I decided to make a bit of a master post of my girlfriend’s and my clothes that we’ve done and are working on. We’ve got at least a known 55-60 hours put into these with a lot more pieces and hours to come in the future. I hope you like them and keep making your own shit :)

33/365 - Drunken Lullabies by Flogging Molly {listen}
Must it take a life for hateful eyes
To glisten once again
Five hundred years like Gelignite
Have blown us all to hell
What savior rests while on his cross we die
While forgotten freedom burns
Has the Shepard led his lambs astray
To the bigot and the gun

Flogging Molly - Selfish Man

I don’t eat, I just devour, everyone in every hour
All is me, is all I need, and that’s all that I care
Propelled through all this madness by your beauty and my sadness
I’ll never change or rearrange ‘till I’ve finished what I started

And life leads me here
It shows me I have never really loved no one but me
Like the time you slipped through my hand
And I’ll never understand why I’m such a selfish man

Walk around me, not before me, I’ll pretend not to ignore ye
But I’ll compromise if I realize you can do something for me
I’m ugly and you know it but you think that I’m a poet
So I’ll keep the rhyme if I feel in time it gets me where I’m going

All I heard was an unearthly silence
Apart from the violence, explode in my head
Where all at once was this moment of beauty
No more since it slew me, no never again

Historical inaccuracies in the movie IT

I went to see the movie a couple days ago and I enjoyed it, but the moviemakers clearly did not do their research about the eighties. 

  • The Losers have a rock-throwing battle with Henry Bowers’ gang by a brook. In real life, though, nobody threw any rocks between 1985 and 1993.
  • Eddie calls his pills “medicine,” but in 1988 the word medicine was not yet used. Instead, people used the word "medeesinue,“ which was pronounced exactly the same.
  • When Georgie’s arm gets bitten off in the beginning of the movie, his red blood flows all over the street, even though everybody’s blood was green during this time period as part of the advertising campaign for Star Trek V.
  • The books that Ben are reading have all the 26 letters of the alphabet, despite the fact that alphabet rationing, which was in full swing by 1988, made this illegal.
  • In multiple scenes, people were socks on a Wednesday without getting arrested.
  • The Losers’ Club has seven members, but groups of seven people didn’t exist until they were invented in the 90’s by the rock band Flogging Molly.
  • Many teenage boys appear in the movie. This is of course completely unrealistic, since there were only three teenage boys in 1988.
