IM GONNA REBLOG THIS POST UNTIL I DIE IM CRYING
The Alpha Couple, characters well known to fans of the Mountain Goats, are a fictional man and woman described in a series of songs strewn throughout early Mountain Goats recordings, culminating in the narrative of the album Tallahassee, the entirety of which is devoted to their move to and subsequent falling out in a dilapidated house in Tallahassee, Florida. The Alphas are portrayed as a young couple who jumps the gun on marriage and, through a series of ups and downs, desperate moves and severe alcoholism, seek to stay together in spite of their deep, unwitting resentment for one another.
Reddit user willneu97 compiled the chronological list, which I owe for absolving me of most of the effort put in to making this (I cleaned, formatted, changed/ added some things, editorialized). These songs mean a lot to me as I’m sure they do many of you. Enjoy.

WHY DO WE SAY “NEAR MISS” WHEN THEY’RE REALLY A “NEAR HIT”: because there are many types of misses. you can miss something by a little (“a near miss”) or by a lot (“a far miss”). if you DON’T want to be hitting something, a near miss is obviously more dangerous than a far one. in contrast, when dealing with bombs, a “near miss” of a target is better than a far miss because while you didn’t hit the mark, it may have still be damaged by the explosion.
