Metallica Monday: St Anger

According to the Kübler-Ross model, there are 5 stages of grief following a loss:
  1. Denial
  2. Anger
  3. Bargaining
  4. Depression
  5. Acceptance
They don't have to be chronological, and some stages may be quicker or less pronounced than others.

Last week I went through a couple of these, including the second phase of anger. Not at any individual, because that wasn't warranted in this case, but just at the general situations of life and how sometimes I'd rather not have to go through them, even when/if they're necessary.

In honor of the anger stage, today I've picked the following song from Metallica's catalog:

St Anger
Warning: contains strong language

For those times when you just want to rage and be angry for a bit, Metallica has your medicine.

    You should wash away your woes by doing a 32-mile walk around NYC on May 5:-)
    Your sissy and her amazing friends have got your back and are rooting for you!!!
