NYYC 50, maybe?
There’s a page at classicsailboats.org that identifies the photo as being of the Herreshoff New York 40 “Pauline” (now Chinook, which is the name on the transom in the photo). I was thrown for a moment by the “40” part, but then realized that’s the LWL; the LOA (with bowsprit) is 59 feet.
Currently in Wicklow, Ireland, according to the listing.

ask me how much I love this song

You gotta keep your eye on the awesomely talented ones.
Reblogging myself to mention a fun fact I subsequently learned: This was an old song of meghan’s that linda suggested they resurrect. She gave it a bass line inspired by “Soon” by My Bloody Valentine, and the rest is history.
Also reblogging because the original post was lonely without notes.

? What does that mean!?
Lately my queue-release schedule is one post at 8 a.m., one at 1 p.m., and one at 6 p.m. When you see me blogging at those times, that’s usually my queue. Then I occasionally schedule things to appear at other times (like, darker stuff I tend to schedule to appear at 11:59 p.m., for goth-y midnight-of-the-soul reasons). And lots of things I just post immediately, without using the queue, like a normal person.
But sometimes (maybe as a result of my going in and re-editing stuff in the queue, or deleting stuff in the queue because by the time it’s about to appear it no longer strikes me as post-worthy?) my queue will get confused and post multiple items. That happened this morning, when three items popped out of the queue at 8 a.m.
That’s what I meant about my queue being possessed.

“We are in an age of climate change and mass extinction and much of this is irreversible. This is what we were given to live through. To be able to look at what the human machine is doing to this living world without feeling grief or despair is an impossibility for anyone who experiences normal human emotions. Grief is not only a natural reaction to the state of the world today, it is a useful one. It is something that should be navigated and understood and accepted and discussed. Like the death of a loved one, the current death of much that is good in the world is something that can’t be denied or wished away: it has to be lived with. It doesn’t follow from that that nothing good will ever happen again, or that you can be of no use in the world.”

So this is a result of a perfect storm of inspirations. There’s these headcanons about Lily having a late night date with Ben and Jerry’s and mojitos and 90s music, and then there’s Yulin’s post about how this episode was inspired by Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day, which is such a lovely movie. Also, this post recently came up on my queue.
And then there’s the fact that Miss Pettigrew has a song in it called, “If I Didn’t Care.”
And I just knew that this was a fic that needed to happen.
Contains spoilers for Miss Pettigrew.
Also this amazing fic.
I always think of it as the song playing on the car radio in the opening scene of The Shawshank Redemption. Per Wikipedia, it also appears in the movies Get Low, Radio Days, and Hyde Park on Hudson, as well as in Bioshock (the game).
Song really gets around.
