Rain-resistant rage

Hangovery Randomness Sunday song is "Umbrella" by the German rock and roll band The Baseballs, originally by the Barbadian pop singer Rihanna.

Robyn Rihanna Fenty once said "Don't be afraid to be yourself just because you're not like everybody else in class. If you want to dye your hair green and that's what makes you happy, then dye your hair green – no matter what other people might say about it. Not everybody is going to like you, that's the world we live in, that's reality." OK, I didn't have high expectations that Miss Fenty would ever say anything worthwhile, but there you go. Cliché? Yes. Something that needs to be repeated often? Meh. Something I would believe if someone who looks and sings exactly like everyone else on MTV would say? Nope. You know where you can stick your preaching umbrella. Yep, the sun ain't shinin' there.

OK, that's it for this week. I'm satisfied. If anyone actually accidentally read/listened to this, I would've probably been more careful of the insanity that leaked from my keyboard. Not. Why not, oh, the omnipotent one? Well, it's simple: I Don't. Fucking. Care.

Never run away. But NEVER stop running.

Epopoeic Saturday song is "Silence" by the UK heavy rock band EsOterica, originally by the Canadian electronic/trance band Delerium. I'm also including the original, because the video is just fucking amazing, plus Sarah McLachlan has an amazing voice.

Sarah McLachlan once said "If you love large, you've got to hurt large. If you've got a lot of light, you've probably got an equal amount of darkness." Holding back is what makes people mediocre and the world boring. Fuck safety cushions, fuck reasonable expectations, fuck pre-planned everything. You can't re-load this game. Just one try. Make it worthwhile. Make it memorable. Make it fun. Yes, it will hurt like shit sometimes. Yes, it will shatter your bones sometimes. But playing it safe will just make you a regret-filled empty shell. Don't hold back. Time to do evil is now. Run hurt, run handcuffed, run not-yet-free. But run. Never stop running.

I hope I'm not thirsty today

Long Hair Friday song is "Zombie" by the Gibraltarian alt-metal band Breed 77, originally by the Irish rock band The Cranberries. And also a bonus version of the same song by Dave Stewart, about whom I know nothing about, except that his voice freezes my blood. Sick shit!

Dolores O'Riordan (lead vocal of The Cranberries) once said "Everybody has demons in their closets, but it's from these demons that we learn and become better people." If you'd empty your closet, there'd be nothing left. Wow, that was genius - if something is empty, nothing's there. I have to remember these rare gems from my own closet. No, I'm saying that if you didn't have any demons, who would you fight? You need to have your own windmills to tilt at. War is excusable only in one's mind. Fuck fighting the weak - fight chaos within.

See you later, Invisble Woman.

Electrocuted Thursday song is "Ain't Talkin' 'Bout Dub" by the English electronic rock band Apollo 440, originally "Ain't Talkin' 'Bout Love" by the American hard rock band Van Halen.

Eddie Van Halen once said "It's always a Catch-22 situation. They hate you if you're the same, and they hate you if you're different." Good call, Eddie. Not! That's called a no-win (or lose-lose) situation. You were probably watching Wrestlemania 22. There, there, it's the thought that counts. We will all continue to hate you no matter how different you become. Or the same. We won't judge. Just hate, hate, hate.

Yes, I won't.

Screaming Bitch Wednesday song is "Big In Japan" by the German alternative/nu metal band Guano Apes, originally by German synthpop band Alphaville.

Marian Gold (lead singer from Alphaville) once said "Perhaps you've only grown up when you can bear not being understood." Pretty awesome thought if you're asking me. Which undoubtfully you are. But would you really want someone to fully understand you if it meant they'd go insane just from the sheer mentalness that is you? Probably yes. Would you feel shallow if everyone understood you? Yep also. So where is that fine three-million-miles-wide line of being completely misunderstood and being completely understood? I vote the Earth. Now, there's a place where no one understands anyone, yet they must pretend to understand everyone, or else. Else what? Exactly. Send me five thousand dollars if you understood any of this. Or be considered a retard and condemned to live a life of solitude and ridicule. Your call.

George of the Junkle

Pass The Tissues Tuesday song is "Careless Whisper" by the South-African band Seether, originally by the pop singer/performer George Michael.

George Michael once said "Even though it's become a really clichéd thing to see musicians working for charity, it's still effective and it still has to be done." Yes, no, and no. It is clichéd and you do it only to show your new designer, glittering pants. It is not effective according to the old Chinese proverb "Give a man a fish; you have fed him for today. Teach a man to fish; and you have fed him for a lifetime". And we know by now the Chinese are always right. While, of course, being left. If the basic and the most important human function is to procreate, they are doing pretty much the best job. Why, if I only had a nickel for every Chinese... I'd have more than a billion of nickels. With each of them weighing 5 grams, I would effectively have 6,7 tons of pigeon ammo. That should be enough to de-pigeonize the Earth. Ever eaten squab? Me neither. Yet. Oh, wait, back to George. Actually, no. It's sometimes too dangerous to argue with someone who also said "Of course, I want to sell this record - there's no point making it otherwise." Sell your records Georgie-Porgie and save the world! You da man! Suppaman!

Take cover! It's cover week.

That means songs that kick substantially more ass in their non-original versions. Accompanied by the "wisdom" of the involved. Consider that a warning.

Trumpet Monday song is "We Are The Champions" by the German ska band The Busters, originally by British prog-rock band Queen.

Freddie Mercury once said "I dress to kill, but tastefully". Well, duh! What's a murder without finesse? A messy bloodbath. As if there were non-messy bloodbaths. Bludgeoning someone with a hammer might be excusable if your first name is Thor. Otherwise it's gauche. Shooting someone with a gun? To the gay-asylum with you, Mr. Eastwood! Now, poisoning someone with a slow-acting agent, untraceable even by CSI Albuquerque, while wearing a pretty dress? Shweeet!
THAT'S what Freddy was talking about.

Emo week bleeds away

how can we still get home
I'm not dreaming

No sleep for the sick

I still believe it’s getting better

Winning is all that matters

despite these imperfections, despite all I say
inside in recollections, I'm done with yesterday

Thursday, July 8, 2010

It should never be too late to try

I remember we would hide behind the trees
Smoking cigarettes until our throats would bleed
Those were the days

The statement to the right is a lie. The statement to the left is the truth.

behind these masks we renegade against the sound
we'll let our voices slowly fade and ring out

You can't destroy evil. Nice try though. Not.

but just remember that when I touch you
the more you shake, the more you give away
but don't you forget
the more you turn away, the more I want you to stay

Pain? Bring it on! Bring it -cough- ehm, wait just one... Noooo! Crap. Pain.

is this how it feels
when you don't even fit into your own skin
and it's getting tighter, every day i'm getting smaller
if i keep holding my breath i'm going to disappear
