The Great Hunger: The Songs of Shane MacGowan
Hello again folks. I'm not stopping long tonight but I just HAD to post this link to a documentary that I watched earlier, it's not the best quality but it can be streamed direct from google video so I urge you to watch it.
Yet again we see the untroubled Shane MacGowan apparently on his road of self-destruction that he apparently seems not to notice.
The guy is incredible to me.
I wonder how he manages to come up with such poetry like he does when his brain is in a state of constant pickledom.
It's always something that makes me a bit sad..when I see him and listen to him in interviews like on this film, I find myself wondering what he 'could have' been like or what he might have been had he not systematically destroyed every sober moment with whatever drugs he used to take and, now, his full on trip into alcoholism at full throttle. He drinks like one of those old men you see in the tube and yet he's still there ... doing what he does, drinking, smoking and writing songs.
The ironic thing is that he often will say how happy or satisfied he feels and gets pissed off with people worrying about him. Yet he truly is in a semi-comatose reality most of or all of the time.
In this film he even makes some comment about how when it comes to drinking and health, he would always put his health first'!
What is it they say about denial and alcoholics. Yet there is a bit of him that tells you, blatantly to your face: I'm no alcoholic fuck up. this is me, this is how I am and this is my life.
To be honest there's no argument against that.
Please watch it even if you hate the band, you might just see a glimpse of humanity that you never knew existed.
