Happy St. Patrick’s Day 2019!

Happy Saint Paddy's Day, everyone! Yes, it's another year in which we all pretend to be Irish and find any excuse to drink our weight's worth of alcohol.

Greetings, bloggers! If you haven't noticed, my blog's URL has been *slightly* changed to thefinickycynic.wordpress.com. After almost five years of being "thefinickycynicat.wordpress.com," I've finally been able to change it, since I honestly got so peeved with the extra "at" I'd added when setting up my blog.

The 1975– It’s Not Living (If It’s Not With You) (Song Sunday #14)

Titled "It's Not Living (If It's Not With You)," it's a 1970's/1980's-inspired power ballad that's sure to get you hooked within seconds of listening to it. …
