I had a chance to tell her, and I still screwed it up.


You chose well.


I can depress myself fine already, thanks.


My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die.


“Prepare to qualify.”


None of them got away… Pan camera to large basement filled with shallow graves…

That’s going into a song!


“You got lucky, babe.”




“Don’t let the door hit ya where the good Lord split ya!”


“They thought they were coming for dinner,
little did they know they were here to stay.
Some thought to excuse themselves early,
none of them got awaaaaaaaaaaaay.”


That to a Psycho Billy beat, we got us a winner!


I should have told you how I felt but I chicken out.
I hope that you are happy.


Isn’t this stalker shit?


Talk about dodging the bullet, love.


“Turns out you weren’t really as big as I told all my fishing buddies anyway.”


Are you digging any right now?


They’re doing it as a podcast rather than as a website app, because SESTA/FOSTA makes that too risky.


Chorus of a song I wrote over 30 years ago:

Leave the past alone
It’ll just disturb old wounds
Its a rule that covers lovers,
jobs, families and tombs


From the endless Wyndham Hill piano-synth background music, to the smarmy-lugubrious narrator, to the lo-fi sniffles of the first recorded “You left…& I didn’t get a chance to say goodbye…” I had to turn this off after less than one minute of fast-forwarding.
I would, however, be interested in reading or hearing less-heavily-curated versions of what folks would say to TOWGA. Mine would be something like:
“Thanks, you did me a favor, though I couldn’t see it at the time.”
