Music hath charms to soothe a savage breast, to soften rocks, or bend a knotted oak.

[ music | Depeche Mode – Songs of Faith and Devotion ]

It was a really crappy day most of the day. Once my obligations were taken care of, I came back, sat down, read some email, and opened up Photoshop. The greatest program of all time, even eclipsing my beloved Mozilla. Then I decided to spin up Depeche Mode’s “Songs of Faith and Devotion”. Oh god, this is exactly what I needed. It’s got the same black sensuality of “Violator” but with a much rougher sound, not nearly as polished and clean sounding. Tonight this is what soothes this savage breast. Delicious.

And with DM putting out a new album and tour this fall, I can grab a few DM shirts while I’m at the concert. The last DM concerts I went to were in ’92 or ’93 (or around there). They swung through Pittsburgh once in the summer, but added a second date in that November, both of which I attended. I sadly have neither shirt after all these years, just a few photos. Come hell or high water, I’ll be at the Boston shows if I have to sell a kidney.

You can help me get there and help Reboot My Life too. 😉
