…and don’t you ever rear your ugly head again!

There, I’ve said it….I am over it. Never been really into it, halfway through felt like abandoning it, and now, on the very last day of it, ready to give it a good kick in the backside just to make sure it well and truly buggers off…thanks 2013, but no thanks.

Whatever it was, it wasn’t mine. What started out with as a rather precise and nicely coordinated wave of German optimism, turned into a tsunami of random and very cross-cultural BRUTALITY AGAINST SHOES.

BRUTALITY.

TOWARDS…and WITH…or AGAINST

SHOES.

“He showed me the shoes, and right there and then, I could have killed him”.

The god of RAGE AGAINST SHOES...we think

But, alas:

Of all those helpful and vanishing cobblers, NO ONE found premature death from the hands of a middle-aged German. The intention was there, the murderous thoughts were thought, weapons of mass destruction aplenty – but restraint was applied.

AGAIN

AND

AGAIN.

But then there was this:

And that:

All you need is ...cats!
All you need is …cats!

And those:

No parking for monkeys...
No parking for monkeys…

So there.

Not so bad after all. Just don’t mention….SHOES!

But since this is what MOSTLY goes on in my head, 2014 will be the year for adjustments.

SERIOUS adjustments.

Just watch this space!

And look at that:

Only about 5 hours left in bloody 2013, so better make sure they will be completely used up – no left-overs to be heated up again and re-ignite the RAGE! RAGE! RAGE!

Let there be PEACE. And LOVE. And HAPPINESS!

What a concept.

And this is it for this year…for those into shoes, check out California-based Jeffrey Campbell
