Wow figured I’d give a little Valentine history to accompany the song i recorded for this day, but shit, there isn’t really anything interesting to say. There were 2 maybe 3 Saint Valentines, none of which had anything to do with romantic love. Folklore states that there was a law passed by the Roman Emperor (doesn’t matter which one since this is fake anyways) to grow the army by outlawing marriage for young men, Valentine performed the marriages anyways. Then he supposedly fell in love with the Jailers daughter, cured her blindness and before death sent her a card with the message “from your Valentine”. All myth of course.
Today we celebrate the holiday with artificial chemicals that taste like chocolate, thousands of tons of discarded sappy pink card stock and roughly $15 Billion dollars spent. A fitting homage to the above mentioned need for a holiday.
Ok, griping aside. I made this for my special someone and spent nothing, . . .but you can listen too!
