5 Songs You Just Might Like – Vol. ‘Deerhunter’

Deep Sea Diver are pretty swell! (pun intended)

Before I get straight into this week’s 5 Songs You Just Might Like, I need to vent a little bit, so bear with me—or just scroll down to the tunes…

I may come off as a hippie, tree-hugging sensitive priss with this post, but I really don’t care, as something I saw posted on Facebook this morning was quite bothersome.  By now, I’ve grown to tolerate all the vague-booking, pointless rants and mommy stories all over my Facebook timeline; however, pictures of dead animals on my Facebook timeline will never be tolerated.

A Facebook “friend” posted photos of his recent hunting trip, along with the deer he shot, killed, gutted and skinned. All this on my Facebook timeline. Although I could never shoot an animal and don’t ever flirt with the idea of hunting for sport, I recognize that many people do, and that’s fine and dandy. But I don’t want to wake up and see that shit on my computer screen. Have some decency when posting Facebook pictures. Seriously. The picture caption of the dead deer with blood coming out of its mouth read “The Circle of Life”.

Bullshit.

Wolves kill deer.  So they can survive. THAT’S the circle of life.  You against that deer, bare hands, no weapons, and then you tell me how the circle of life goes.

I want to reiterate that although I don’t personally like the idea of hunting—especially for sport—I realize people do it and that’s their right.  I just don’t need to see a bloody, skinned and gutted carcass on my Facebook feed. Go hunting, take pictures, show your friends who care, but don’t show people who haven’t asked to see them.

Thanks, “friend”. If you find you are minus 1 friend on Facebook today, now you’ll know who.

Now – if you haven’t been turned off by my hippie rant and want to listen to some tunes you just might like, with no further adieu:
