Raise Your Glass

I have this (probably not so unusual) weird habit of using songs to scratch at my scars. (Three hours a day on trains give me some quality digging time.)

So, it's pretty unusual for me to come across an honestly feel-good song. But one I have found! I smile every time I watch Pink's new video.

Not only is it catchy, but I have a feeling that if you've been drawn here to this blog for a long time, then you also know what Pink means by being "wrong in all the right ways." In a way, I've intended this place to be a safe harbor for people who feel a step or two off to the side of the normal flow.

You know, interesting people.

Intense people. ;)

So to the readers of The Clarity of Night, present and past alike, cheers!

I raise my glass to you.

Oh, that was fun. Made me smile, too. And thanks for the safe harbor. :)

Back 'atcha Jason.

That Pink song is my type of song. Hadn't heard it before.

Aine said...


I remember the first time I heard this song-- she hooked me with the line "too school for cool"...

If I ever hit the mainstream please come get me but do it in a way you don't get stuck there too.

Sere, I'm glad you landed here. :) I definitely feel like you're part of the less populated world. Not far from the one I reflect here.

StrugglingWriter, you've been a friend for a long time. I'd raise that glass with you anytime.

Aine, don't you love that portion of the video?! Pink does such a great job. That's one of my favorite parts.

Mona, I'm with you. :)

Chris, is it time for another? No empty glasses. ;) Just sit tight, I'll get it for you.

Karen, of course! You have a timeless youth. It shines from you.

Bru, love that! Makes me yearn for an Irish Pub.

Walking Man, we don't leave anyone behind, my friend. We'll bring you home.

i don't particularly like this song, but i think it was just some of the images shown that made me go ewww...
and if i get your meaning right, i agree with you totally.
this to all the visitors, readers and writers of TCoN :)

Oh, I really love that song!

Jason, you have always made me feel right at home here - and safe to write, express, or free to be whatever insane person I happen to be at the time. Iechyd da! (To your good health)

I've been "wrong in all the right ways" since the day I walked into a prison. On Friday I'll be doing a reading at an art gallery with of all people: The Walking Man. Hopefully I won't offend too many people.

Szelsofa, I'm not 100% sure, but I think Pink is into animal rights. Some of those images are role-reversals, which when viewed that way, are true. I, myself, worry more about people than animals, but I see her point.

Kaye, that's a wonderful thing to hear. :) You've been a treasured member of the night community.

JR, that's so cool! I hope you two and all of other the participants have a blast! Maybe you guys can knock back a beer for me (while you revel in your wrongness).

Yup, that's me...What a fun video!
