It’s only been 75 years, but authorities are finally attempting to recover the remains of Spanish poet Federico Garcia Lorca, who was murdered at the beginning of the Spanish Civil War. Remember people, if civil war breaks out, your neighbors will basically just use it as a pretense to murder you if you are different from them satisfy old grudges—so be careful and play safe out there! No one knows if they’ll actually identify Lorca’s remains among the others murdered that day, but hey, it’s given me an excuse to post one of my favorite Pogues songs… about Lorca! (Unfortunately, this one has no footage of Shane MacGowan being drunk.)
