So, in lieu of a self-challenge that involves anything healthy or enriching, I’ve made it my goal to listen to the Misfits every day during the month of October. This has been a wonderful plan. I have fantasies of being a Real Hausfrau of whatever and staging an elaborate children’s halloween party featuring a Misfits cover band, comprised of children, doing g-rated versions of all the classics for the delight of my imaginary fellow hausfraus and their spoiled children. Obviously my first choice would be for the Danzig impersonator to be a 6 year old girl.
But by far my favorite part of this ritual is listening to “TV Casualty”, and the point where, when listing off all of the things the scary television has done to him, Danzig drones about the “Christmas cards to which I’ve never replied!” How hilariously banal. That’s the point, right?
