HAPPY #OUTLANDERDAY!!!! Feasgar math! (Good afternoon!)

oie_v5tjeKpZOLiVI frackin’ love that picture, man.

ANYhoo… to celebrate my very favorite day/night of the week, here is a song (by Enter the Haggis, an awesome Celtic folk rock band from Canada) that’s been on repeat on my Kindle for a couple of weeks now. For some reason, it reminds me of JAMMF. Lyrics follow.

Lyrics (c) Enter the Haggis, 2013

little wonder
wide awake
buried under
the promises you make
don’t be worried
somebody’s gonna take you home
remember

if you fall
fall with grace
don’t let ’em see the fear upon your face
if you break
break the reins
it’s better up in lights than down in flames

city soldier
tall and proud
find your pleasure
wherever you’re allowed
underwater
sobody’s gotta take you home
keep you on your throne

but if you fall
fall with grace
don’t let ’em see the fear upon your face
and if you break
break the reins
it’s better up in lights than down in flames
and i will do the same
bastard brother
so far away
if I call you
I wonder what you’ll say
little wonder
home is just a word to me now

remember
if you fall
fall with grace
don’t let ’em see the fear upon your face
if you break
break the reins
it’s better up in lights than down in flames
and I will do the same.

In fact, if you go to their website — http://www.enterthehaggis.com — you can listen to tons of their stuff for free. Balto and Letters (especially Letters — check out the lyrics below), the next song two songs on this CD, also sort of calls JAMMF and Claire to mind.

Letters (c) Enter the Haggis, 2013

Lost, farewell
under this sinking sun
in an ocean of sky
dust and bones
echoes of rusty guns
i’m not too young to die

your love is a compass rose
steadfast through this sand and stone
wind, carry these letters home to Joan
old memories come to life
a last dance in this amber light
wind, carry these letters home tonight

spinning wheels
since i was just a boy
with a traveling mind
the bright moon steals
the heart of orion’s joy
we trace a simple line

all our days
there was a song that played
for you in my head
all these things on my mind
now that i’m taking the time
to write

see these letters swirl
like a thousand white birds
in the sky up above her
i’m a flag unfurled
and I’m sending my heart
to a dear friend and lover
